Hydraulic Institute Seeks Reviews for Updated Standard

The Hydraulic Institute (HI), under the approval of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), is seeking qualified individuals in North America to participate in the review process for the draft of updated Standard, American National Standard for Pumps – General Guidelines for Types, Definitions, Application, Sound Measurement, and Decontamination (ANSI/HI 9.1-9.5-2012) 

ANSI/HI 9.1-9.5-2012 has been substantially revised and updated and replaces the prior version that was last reviewed in 2000.  This standard applies to industrial/commercial pumps including positive displacement and kinetic types.  Positive displacement pumps add energy to liquids by rapping liquid in a confined space and forcibly moving it out of the pump and into the discharge pipe.  This pumping action is accomplished by either reciprocating action of plungers, pistons, bellows, or diaphragms; rotary action of mechanical devices such as gears, screws, or vanes; or by blow case arrangements using pressurized air o displace liquid.  Kinetic pumps add energy by high-speed rotating wheels or impellers, using either centrifugal effects; regenerative turbine pumping action; or by a rotating case with a stationary arm fitted with a pitot tube.

Individuals and organizations located in North America 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 parties interested in reviewing the draft. This list will be submitted to ANSI in order to meet its open canvass requirements.

To participate in the ANSI/HI canvass, contact Gregg Romanyshyn, Technical Director, gromanyshyn@Pumps.org  or call (973) 267-9700 x114.

HI Pump Standards are reliable, widely accepted references for anyone involved in pumps, including users, consultants, contractors, construction firms, manufacturers of pumps, seals, motors, instrumentation, controls, and pump software developers and systems integrators.  HI periodically introduces new Standards based on industry needs.

About the Hydraulic Institute: The Hydraulic Institute (HI) is the largest association of pump producers and suppliers to the pump industry in North America and a global authority on pumps and pumping systems.  Its mission is to serve as a forum for the exchange of industry information, while providing value-added services to member companies and pump users worldwide. This includes the development and delivery of comprehensive industry Standards, as well as the expansion of knowledge that effectively advances the application, testing, installation, operation and maintenance of pumps and pumping systems.
