The Hydraulic Institute (HI) has named Thomas L. Angle, vice president, product engineering, Weir Specialty Pumps, as its 2009 “Member of the Year.” The award was conferred on Angle at Hydraulic Institute’s 93rd Annual Meeting gala, which recently took place in Marco Island, Fla.

The HI board of directors selected Angle for distinguishing himself on the extent and level of his involvement in HI, and in particular for advancing the technical work of the Hydraulic Institute in a wide variety of venues. Most recently Angle served as the co-chair of the Pump Piping Committee responsible for publishing “Rotodynamic Pumps - Pump Piping Standard (ANSI/HI 9.6.6),” the reference on pump piping issues.

“Tom’s contributions to the Hydraulic Institute have been invaluable,” said Gregg Romanyshyn, HI technical director. “He consistently offers sound ideas that help drive the often arduous standards development and approval process. Again and again Tom demonstrates strong leadership skills. Over the years, he has effectively managed a number of volunteer committees that have enabled HI to provide the industry with beneficial pump reference information, education materials and programs that not only serve and support our members, but also advance the pump industry worldwide. Tom is truly an outstanding member.”

Angle has served HI as chair of the Standards Committee, chair of the Section Chairs Committee, and chair of the Viscosity Correction Committee; he has been active on HI’s Technical Affairs Steering Committee, Joint CPS/VPS Test Standards Committee, the Variable Speed Operations Work Group, the Slurry Pump Committee, Life Cycle Cost Committee and other committees and projects. He is also a member of the Submersible Pump Manufacturers Assn.

Angle holds two degrees from the University of California at Davis: a bachelor’s degree in agricultural engineering and master’s in engineering.
