What is meant by cavitation?

cavitation, formation of vapour bubbles within a liquid at low-pressure regions that occur in places where the liquid has been accelerated to high velocities, as in the operation of centrifugal pumps, water turbines, and marine propellers.

What is the process of cavitation?

INTRODUCTION. Cavitation is defined as the process of formation of the vapor phase of a liquid when it is subjected to re- duced pressures at constant ambient temperature. Thus, it is the process of boiling in a liquid as a result of pressure reduction rather than heat addition.

What is cavitation and what causes it?

Cavitation happens when bubbles, or voids, form within a fluid because the pressure quickly drops below the vapor pressure. When the bubbles experience higher pressures they collapse, creating small shockwaves that, over time, damage parts.

What is cavitation and how can it be prevented?

The best way to prevent cavitation is to select the right pump for the application. Cavitation increases as pump head falls or as capacity increases, so selecting the correct pump to maintain a positive margin of NPSHa above NPSHr is the best first move.

Can I do cavitation everyday?

How often can Cavitation be done? At least 3 days must pass between each session for the first 3 sessions, then once a week. For most clients, we recommend a minimum of between 10 and 12 cavitation treatments for best results. It is important to typically stimulate the treatment area following the session.

How often can I do ultrasonic cavitation?

However, the standard treatment should be completed in one to three sessions with two weeks between every session depending on the treatment. Each session is around 45 to 75 minutes. It takes about 6 to 12 weeks to see the results of ultrasonic cavitation.

Who should not do body cavitation?

The following individuals should not undergo the procedure: Pregnant and breastfeeding women. Persons showing skinfold lower than 2 cm. Infection or inflammation in the region where the procedure will be done.
