Some aspects of the design and performance characteristics of high-suction specific-speed pumps (cavitating inducer) are discussed. Although conventional pump-suction specific speeds are limited by incipient cavitation limits, the properly designed cavitating inducer can operate at values of suction specific speeds many times that limited by incipient cavitation. Owing to the restricted nature of this material, the authors regret leaving out much of the design information.
