Enclosed the snap shot of the suction piping arrangement of a centrifugal pump OH2 type. Pumping clear water...Our consultant is insisting to have a vortex breaker in the suction line...The pump rated flow is around 1100 m3/hr at 3 barg discharge pressure....Is this requirement is technically justified? Thanks to help with the criteria to provide a vortex breaker for such centrifugal pumps.
