Hydraulic Institute seeks reviewers for drafts of updated rotodynamic pump standards
The Hydraulic Institute is seeking a broad-based consensus of pump industry professionals and stakeholders in North America in the review process for the drafts of its updated ANSI/HI Standard 2.1-2.2, Rotodynamic (Vertical) Pumps for Nomenclature and Definitions as well as ANSI/HI Standard 1.1-1.2, Rotodynamic (Centrifugal) Pumps for Nomenclature and Definitions. As such, it's seeking volunteers to review the standards and offer their opinions...
PARSIPPANY, NJ -- November 16, 2007 -- 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 2.1-2.2, Rotodynamic (Vertical) Pumps for Nomenclature and Definitions.
This standard applies to
A) vertical diffuser, submersible motor, deep well pumps
B) vertical diffuser, submersible motor, short set pumps.
These pumps are typically driven by vertical electric motors, or horizontal engines with right angle gears. The standard also includes types, nomenclature, and definitons for these pumps.
Excluded from the scope of products are
A) vertical in-line pumps
B) horizontal centrifugal pumps mounted vertically such as sewage pumps
C) vertical, overhung impeller, close coupled, submersible single stage submersible pumps
Individuals and organizations 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 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 (www.Pumps.org), a global authority on pumps and pumping systems, is the largest association of pump producers in North America. Information on the Hydraulic Institute, its services, standards, publications and meetings, can be found on the HI websites at www.Pumps.org and www.PumpLearning.org, and on the new energy-savings and life cycle cost focused site, www.PumpSystemsMatter.org. Requests may also be faxed to (973) 267-9055 or mailed to: Hydraulic Institute, 9 Sylvan Way, Suite 180, Parsippany, NJ 07054.
