Thread: Cavitation question...
12-29-2007, 08:09 PM #1
What about the cavitation in the pump shoe around the driveshaft...? I'm thinking of making a ss plate that coveres most of the gap aroung the shaft. Just a thin plate... like 0,6 0,8 or 1,0mm plate.
What do you think?

But... would the space between the shaft and the pumpshoe need covering? As I see it, it will cause som cavitation (airbobbles) from that aerea if it's not covered. Heck, I'll do it anyway

But dosen't cavitation also have to do with
(1) sucking air through the carbon/floating ring and
(2) sucking air through the pump seal and
(3) the prop compressing the water so hard and quickly that the air in the water is pressed out??
