  • Rotodynamic (Centrifugal) Pumps for Nomenclature and Definitions (ANSI/HI 1.1-1.2) – Co-chair
  • Rotodynamic (Vertical) Applications (ANSI/HI 2.3) – Member
  • Rotodynamic Pumps for Vibration Measurement and Allowable Values (ANSI/HI 9.6.4)  – Member
  • Rotodynamic Pumps Guideline for NPSH Margin (ANSI/HI 9.6.1) – Member
  • Rotodynamic (Centrifugal & Vertical) Pumps – Guideline for Allowable Operating Region (ANSI/HI 9.6.3) – Member
  • Pump Efficiency Expert Team – Member

In addition, Bruce continues to support other HI committees by providing spreadsheets, graphics, and test data as requested. He has been involved with HI since 2008 and is currently a 4-year VIP (Very Important Participant) of the Institute.
