Use Of Inducers In Liquified Petroleum Gas And Condensate Service For Better Performance
The inducer is a very small booster pump, lifting the suction pressure to a sufficient level for the main conventional impeller. By adding the inducer to high speed centrifugal pumps, NPSHr can be reduced to a great extent. Liquid with high gas content can be pumped successfully with inducer equipped pumps. Even low NPSHr allows a smaller, high speed low horsepower pump, saving energy and capital cost.
