Hydraulic Institute Seeks Reviewers for Drafts of Updated ANSI/HI 1.4 Rotodynamic (Centrifugal) Pumps and ANSI/HI 2.4 Rotodynamic (Vertical) Pumps for Manuals Describing Installation, Operation, and Maintenance

Press release date: Apr 26, 2013

Parsippany, NJ — The Hydraulic Institute (HI), under the approval of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), is seeking qualified individuals in North America to participate in the review process for the draft of updated Standard ANSI/HI 1.4 Rotodynamic (Centrifugal) Pumps for Manuals Describing Installation, Operation, and Maintenance & ANSI/HI 2.4 Rotodynamic (Vertical) Pumps for Manuals Describing Installation, Operation, and Maintenance.
These Standards apply to:
• Rotodynamic (Centrifugal) pumps
• Rotodynamic (Vertical) pumps

The purpose of these documents is to:
1. Identify a standard format, which will be used when writing IOM’s along with the topics that will be covered in each section when deemed appropriate for the pump being addressed; and
2. Review and update as needed the existing ANSI/HI 1.4 & ANSI/HI 2.4 documents to conform to the newly identified format as well as to address the needs of horizontal centrifugal & vertical pumps.

Individuals and organizations located in North America directly and materially affected by this standard are asked to contact HI. These parties include pump users and specifiers, producers, standards developers, government agencies, and general interest groups.  HI is currently assembling a canvass list of all parties interested in reviewing the draft. This list will be submitted to ANSI in order to meet its open canvass requirements.

To participate in the ANSI/HI canvass, contact Karen Anderson, Administrator, Technical Affairs, at kanderson@Pumps.org or call 973.267.9700 x123.

HI Pump Standards are reliable, widely accepted references for anyone involved with pumps, including users, consultants, contractors, construction firms, manufacturers of pumps, seals, motors, instrumentation, controls, and pump software developers and systems integrators.  HI periodically introduces new Standards based on industry needs.
