Norm pump

Normpumps are pumps that comply with the guidelines or regulations of a standardization organization.

The standards regulate, for example, the main dimensions of the pump unit. This enables manufacturer-independent interchangeability.

The most important standardization organizations for pumps include:


  • ANSI American National Standard Institute
  • API American Pertroleum Institute
  • BPMA British Pump Manufacturers Association
  • DIN Deutsches Institut für Normung
  • HI Hydraulic Institute
  • ISO International Organisation for Standardization
  • UNI Unificazione Italiana
  • VDMA Verband Deutscher Maschinen- und Anlagenbau
