ANSI/HI 6.1-6.5 Reciprocating Power Pumps for Nomenclature, Definitions, Application, and Operation standard.  This standard was designed to provide types and nomenclature; definitions; design and application; installation; operation and maintenance; and test for Positive Displacement Reciprocating Pumps including the following: Reciprocating Power Pumps Reciprocating Direct Acting (Steam) Pumps, Reciprocating Controlled Volume Pumps, and Reciprocating Diaphragm Pumps.  Excluded from the scope of products are high-pressure hydraulic power pumps and systems.

These standards apply to test of the pump only, unless stated otherwise. The type of test performed and the auxiliary equipment to be used should be agreed upon by the purchaser and manufacturer prior to the test.
