Xylem Applied Water System Test Lab Facilities Approved through Hydraulic Institute's Pump Test Lab Approval Program
Press release date: Oct 03, 2016
The HI 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 will build confidence in the market that the stated efficiencies will be achieved.
The pump test lab approval program is HI's latest program designed to support the DOE's energy saving initiatives. “The Hydraulic Institute Pump Test Lap Approval certification of our Xylem facilities in Morton Grove, Illinois, and Seneca Falls, New York, validates our work in developing highly efficient products and solutions for both the commercial and residential markets,” said Chris Johnson, Director of New Product Development and Engineering, Xylem Inc.
