Entergy Pump Evaluation & Modifications

PMI provided pump evaluation and modification services at Entergy’s White Bluff Plant. Entergy operates two cooling tower pumps rated at 200,000 gpm. The pumps were inspected by PMI and it was determined that cavitation was present. The cavitation was a result of poor pump bay design. PMI provided Entergy with construction drawings for modifications to the pump bay, such as fiberglass curtain walls, vortex breaker pipes and wall baffles.
