• HI seeks reviewers for Draft of Updated Rotodynamic (Centrifugal and Vertical) Pumps -- Allowable Nozzle Loads and Rotodynamic (Vertical) Pumps for Installation, Operation, and Maintenance Manuals

PARSIPPANY, NJ -- Jan. 8, 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 9.6.2, Rotodynamic (Centrifugal and Vertical) Pumps -- Allowable Nozzle Loads.

This standard applies to
a) Horizontal end suction single stage
b) Vertical in-line single stage
c) Axial split case, single and two stage.
d) Vertical turbine short set pumps.

Many other pump types are not included because of the different designs that are unique to each manufacturer.

HI is also seeking qualified individuals in North America to participate in the review process for the draft of updated standard ANSI/HI 2.4, Rotodynamic (Vertical) Pumps for Installation, Operation, and Maintenance Manuals.

The committee limited its activity to Rotodynamic (Vertical) Pumps including the following:
A) Vertical, diffuser deep well pumps
B) Vertical, diffuser, short set pumps
C) Vertical, diffuser, can mounted pumps
D) Vertical, diffuser, submersible, deep well pumps
E) Vertical, diffuser, submersible, short set pumps
F) Vertical, diffuser, double casing, inline, floor mounted
G) Vertical, volute, double suction, wet pit
H) Vertical, volute, double suction, can type
I) Vertical, volute, multi-stage axial split, can type

Excluded from the scope of products are vertical in-line pumps, horizontal centrifugal pumps mounted vertically such as sewage pumps, vertical, overhung impeller pumps, and close-coupled single stage submersible pumps.

To Participate
Individuals and organizations in North America directly and materially affected by one (or both) of these standards 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 x23.

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