The Hydraulic Institute introduces member company, PSG a Dover Company, as the latest company to have their pump test laboratory approved through the HI Pump Test Lab Approval Program. The approved pump test lab is located at 22069 Van Buren Street, Grand Terrace, CA.
The HI program assists pump OEMs and other pump test laboratories improve their current laboratory procedures and policies by working with an experienced third-party auditor to develop and maintain accurate, uniform and repeatable pump testing protocols. The program also helps participating organizations adhere to the requirements of the international test laboratory accreditation standard (ISO 17025) concerning test measurement equipment.
As the DOE requires increased efficiencies for commercial and industrial pumps, a manufacturer’s ability to demonstrate accurate pump performance will be an important part of compliance. Performing these tests in a lab that not only applies the industry standard (HI 40.7) but also stands up to an independent third party audit will build confidence in the market that the stated efficiencies will be achieved. The pump test lab approval program is HI’s latest program designed to support the DOE’s energy saving initiatives.
In addition to support of the DOE’s initiatives, PSG, a Dover Company, upholds their commitment to their customers. “PSG is committed to providing customers with reliable pumps that operate at top performance levels. In order to accomplish this, we have continually invested in our engineering and testing expertise. Partnering with the Hydraulic Institute to become certified to HI 40.6 shows our dedication to having aworld-class test facility that give our customer’s confidence in our pumps,” stated James Farley, Product Manager, Rotating Equipment, PSG Grand Terrace.
