The aim of this paper is to introduce the type of instrumentation, and measuring techniques presently being used at NEL to study cavitation noise in pumps, with particular reference to the onset of cavitation in a pump, and its variation with change in pump speed and flowrate. Reference is also made to the effects of hydraulic circuit noise, attenuation and impedance effects and aspects of cavitation erosion.
