PARSIPPANY, NJ, June 9, 2009 -- 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 9.6.3, Rotodynamic Pumps for Allowable Operating Region.
This Standard applies to:
• Rotodynamic (Centrifugal) pumps
• Rotodynamic (Vertical) pumps
This Guideline applies to rotodynamic (centrifugal and vertical) pump types. It describes the effects of operating a rotodynamic pump at rates of flow that are greater or less than the rate of flow at the pump's best efficiency point (BEP).
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 Karen Anderson, Administrator, Technical Affairs, at kanderson@Pumps.org or call (973) 267-9700 x123.
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. The current edition of ANSI/HI Standards comprises approximately 1600 pages and 28 documents.
The Hydraulic Institute is the largest association of pump producers and suppliers to the pump industry in North America and is 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.
