The Hydraulic Institute (HI), under the approval of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), is seeking qualified individuals to participate in the review process of three standards to be placed into stabilized maintenance. These standards include:
ANSI/HI 6.1-6.5 Reciprocating Power Pumps for Nomenclature, Definitions, Application, and Operation standard. This standard was designed to provide types and nomenclature; definitions; design and application; installation; operation and maintenance; and test for Positive Displacement Reciprocating Pumps including the following: Reciprocating Power Pumps Reciprocating Direct Acting (Steam) Pumps, Reciprocating Controlled Volume Pumps, and Reciprocating Diaphragm Pumps. Excluded from the scope of products are high-pressure hydraulic power pumps and systems.
ANSI/HI 6.6 Reciprocating Pump Test standard. This standard was designed to provide guidance to test reciprocating power pumps, including controlled volume metering pumps, which are driven by power from an outside source applied to the crankshaft. It includes procedures for testing such pumps. These standards apply to test of the pump only, unless stated otherwise. The type of test performed and the auxiliary equipment to be used should be agreed upon by the purchaser and manufacturer prior to the test.
ANSI/HI 8.1-8.5 Direct Acting (Steam) Pumps for Nomenclature, Definitions, Application, and Operation standard. This standard was designed to provide types and nomenclature; definitions; design and application; installation; operation and maintenance; and test for direct acting (steam) pumps.
Individuals and organizations directly and materially affected by this standard are asked to contact HI. These parties include pump users and specifiers, producers, standards developers, government agencies, and general interest groups. HI is currently assembling a canvass list of all interested parties who wish to review the drafts and will submit the list to ANSI in order to meet its open canvass requirements.
To participate in the ANSI/HI canvass, contact Karen Anderson, Administrator, Technical Affairs at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 973.267.9700 x123.
About the Hydraulic Institute: The Mission of the Hydraulic Institute is to serve the pump industry as a forum for the exchange of information while providing value-added services to member companies and pump users worldwide. This includes the development and delivery of comprehensive industry standards. For more information on the Hydraulic Institute, its member companies and its Standards Partners, visit www.Pumps.org.
Pump Systems Matter is a non-profit educational organization established by the Hydraulic Institute, and leading utilities and energy efficiency organizations, to educate the industry on the benefits to pump systems optimization and energy efficiency to improve bottom-line savings of end-user companies.
