Hydraulic Institute Seeks Reviewers For Updated Standards
This Standard covers the unique features of sealless rotary pumps and includes sections on types and nomenclature; definitions; design and applications; installation, operation, and maintenance; and test. Because of the variety of rotary pump configurations available and the broad range of applications, familiarization with Hydraulic Institute Standards ANSI/HI 3.1–3.5 Rotary Pumps for Nomenclature, Definitions, Application and Operation and ANSI/HI 3.6 Rotary Pump Tests is recommended.
HI is also seeking participants to review process for the draft of updated Standard ANSI/HI 5.1-5.6, Sealless Rotodynamic (Centrifugal) Pumps for Nomenclature, Definitions, Application, Operation and Test.
This Standard applies to canned motor pumps and magnetic drive pumps. Excluded from the scope of products are submersible wastewater pumps.
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 kanderson@Pumps.org or call (973) 267-9700 ext. 23.
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 over 1,500 pages and 27 documents.
