Sponsored by

PARSIPPANY, NJ, Aug. 20, 2008 -- 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 ANSI/HI 3.6, Rotary Pump Test.

This standard applies to industrial/commercial rotary positive displacement pumps. It includes detailed procedures on the setup and conduct of mechanical and performance tests of such pumps. It does not include vibration or acoustical testing.

This standard recognizes two levels of performance tests for rotary pumps and provides procedures for conducting and reporting each test level. The test levels have been designed to permit selection of tolerances and accuracy appropriate for the application and the customer's needs.

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 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 Karen Anderson, Administrator, Technical Affairs, at or call (973) 267-9700 x23.

HI periodically introduces new standards based on industry needs. The current Edition of ANSI/HI Standards comprises over 1500 pages and 27 documents.

Founded in 1917, the Hydraulic Institute, a global authority on pumps and pumping systems, is the largest association of pump producers in North America.
