The shrouded intake reduces the flow area past the ESP motor. The increased fluid velocity past the ESP provides cooling to the motor.

This is useful for applications where without the shroud the fluid velocity would be less than the 1 foot per second recommended velocity. This is the simplest shroud arrangement which has limited load bearing capacity.
