Hydraulic Institute releases four updated ANSI/HI pump standards

The Hydraulic Institute (HI) has announced the release of four updated publications: Rotodynamic Centrifugal Pumps for Nomenclature and Definitions (ANSI/HI 1.1-1.2-2014), Rotodynamic Vertical Pumps of Radial, Mixed, and Axial Flow Types for Nomenclature and Definitions (ANSI/HI 2.1-2.2-2014), Rotodynamic Centrifugal Pumps for Manuals Describing Installation, Operation, and Maintenance (ANSI/HI 1.4-2014) and Rotodynamic Vertical Pumps for Manuals Describing Installation, Operation, and maintenance (ANSI/HI 2.4-2014).  These updated Standards are immediately available for interested users from the Hydraulic Institute’s redesigned eStore.


Rotodynamic Centrifugal Pumps for Nomenclature and Definitions (ANSI/HI 1.1-1.2-2014) covers rotodynamic pumps with centrifugal (radial), mixed flow, and axial flow impellers, as well as regenerative turbine and Pitot tube type pumps, of all industrial/commercial types except vertically suspended diffuser turbine pumps. It contains description of types, nomenclature, and definitions. Available here: http://estore.pumps.org/Rotodynamic-Centrifugal-Pumps-for-Nomenclature-and-Definitions-ANSIHI-11-12-2014-secure-PDF-P624.aspx

Rotodynamic Vertical Pumps of Radial, Mixed, and Axial Flow Types for Nomenclature and Definitions (ANSI/HI 2.1-2.2-2014) standard is for types, nomenclature, and definitions of vertical turbine, mixed flow, axial flow vertical diffuser, submersible motor deep-well and short-set pumps, commonly defined as vertically suspended rotor types VS0,VS1, VS2, VS3, VS6, VS7, and VS8, as well as vertical overhung impeller types VS4 and VS5 that are driven by vertical electric motors or horizontal engines with right-angle gears.

HI Pump Standards are reliable, widely accepted references for anyone involved in 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.   The three new Standards, along with HI’s complete library of ANSI Standards for the pump industry, are user-friendly, and available in both electronic and print formats in the HI eStore or by calling the Hydraulic Institute’s purchasing line at: 973. 267. 9700 Ext 118.
