Original Press Release:
Grundfos CBS Test Lab Facility Approved Through Hydraulic Institute’s Pump Test Lab Approval Program
Parsippany, NJ, May 10, 2018 – The Hydraulic Institute introduces member company, Grundfos CBS 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 in Brookshire, Texas.
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.
“It’s fantastic that we are now part of the HI Test lab Approval Program. It’s great the high test quality standards that Grundfos has set for itself for many years can be recognized through this program.” stated Lloyd Cotton, Test Engineer II of Grundfos CBS Inc.
