Hydro Is First HI-Approved Pump Test Lab

Sept. 18, 2015
Hydro, Inc. test lab facility becomes the first approved pump test lab through the Hydraulic Institute’s Pump Test Lab Approval Program.

The Hydraulic Institute member company, Hydro, Inc., is the first organization to have its pump test laboratory approved through the Pump Test Lab Approval Program. The program assists pump OEMs and other pump test laboratories improve their current laboratory procedures and policies by working with an experienced third-party auditor to develop and maintain accurate, uniform and repeatable pump testing protocols. The program also helps participating organizations adhere to the requirements of the international test laboratory accreditation standard (ISO 17025) concerning test measurement equipment.

As the DOE requires increased efficiencies for commercial and industrial pumps, a manufacturer's ability to demonstrate accurate pump performance will be an important part of compliance. Performing these tests in a lab that not only applies the industry standard (HI 40.7) but also stands up to an independent third party audit can build confidence in the market that the stated efficiencies can actually be achieved, according to HI.

The Pump Test Lab Approval Program is HI's latest program designed to support the DOE's energy saving initiatives.
