A common misconception is that it is due solely to material strength.
Common Pumping Mistakes
Avoid this unique and specific type of cavitation caused by the impeller passing too close to the cutwater(s) on a volute-style pump.
The placement of the cutwater, its length, thickness, leading edge profile and flow angle all have roles in the casing efficiency.
