I used to have that problem. I had a line installed at the suction side of the pump back to the Fractionator wash-zone so that I could warm-up the pump with the suction valve closed. After warming up the pump, you can then open the suction valve and close the line back to the wash-zone then wash this line with CLGO back to the wash-zone so that it doesn’t plug. This works every time. No more pump cavitations.
