Crane Pump & Systems Test Lab Facility Approved through Hydraulic Institute's Pump Test Lab Approval Program

Press release date: Mar 10, 2016

Parsippany, NJ – The Hydraulic Institute introduces member company, Crane Pump & Systems, as the latest company to have their pump test laboratory approved through the HI Pump Test Lab Approval Program. The approved pump test lab is located at 430 3rd Street, Piqua, OH.

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. “Crane Pumps & Systems is pleased to add the Hydraulic Institute certification to its list of lab accreditations.” said Mark Kowalak, VP of Engineering for Crane Pumps & Systems. “Having our pump test laboratory approved through the HI Pump Test Lab Approval Program highlights our commitment to provide customers with market leading products and solutions as we prepare for the implementation of the new DOE energy efficiency regulations.”
