Hydraulic Institute Seeking Qualified Individuals for Review Process
In collaboration with ANSI, enlisting participants to review new standard for application of rotodynamic pumps
The Hydraulic Institute (HI), under the approval of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI), is seeking qualified individuals to participate in the review process of a newly completed standard for the design and application of Rotodynamic (Vertical) Pumps.
This standard was designed to provide design and application information for rotodynamic vertical pumps for various services, including principle features of this pump type and necessary precautions for proper use. The document includes information applicable to vertical diffuser and submersible motor deep-well and short-set pumps, types VS1, VS2, VS3, VS6, VS7, VS8, and VS9 that are driven by vertical electric motors or horizontal engines with right-angle gears. Excluded from the scope of products are vertical in-line volute pumps, horizontal centrifugal pumps mounted vertically, and overhung vertical impeller, types VS4 and VS5.
Individuals and organizations 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 interested parties who wish to review the drafts and will submit the list to ANSI in order to meet its open canvass requirements.
To participate in the ANSI/HI canvass, contact Karen Anderson, technical affairs ddministrator, at [email protected].
