Hydraulic Institute Releases ANSI/HI Pump Standards CD-ROM Version 2.1
The Hydraulic Institute (HI) has announced the release of ANSI/HI Pump Standards Version 2.1 on CD-ROM. The new and comprehensive CD-ROM is comprised of the complete set of 28 ANSI/HI Standards, five of which have been extensively updated since the release of Version 2.0 in 2005.
Additionally, the CD-ROM includes the first edition of the Controlled Volume Metering Pumps for Nomenclature, Definitions Application and Operation (ANSI/HI 7.1-7.5).
Development of the Controlled Volume Metering Pumps Standard was a collaborative effort between American Lewa, Inc., Grundfos Pump Corporation, Iwaki America Inc., McFarland-Tritan, LLC, Milton Roy Americas, Siemens US Filter/Wallace & Tiernan and the Hydraulic Institute.
This new standard is for reciprocating positive displacement pumps that are typically used for the injection of chemical additives, proportional blending of multiple components, or metered transfer of a single liquid. These types of metering pumps are used in applications that require highly accurate, repeatable, and adjustable rate of flow. Controlled-volume metering (CVM) pumps are characterized by their ability to meet specific performance requirements regarding steady state accuracy, repeatability, and linearity. Topics in this standard include the types and nomenclature pertinent to CVM pumps, an explanation of the definitions used in describing the performance and characteristics of CVM pumps, a discussion of how CVM pumps are selected and where they are applied, and a section on the proper installation, operation, and maintenance of CVM pumps that will ensure trouble-free operation.
Updated Standards in Version 2.1 include:
- ANSI/HI 1.3 Rotodynamic (Centrifugal) Design and Application - 2009
- ANSI/HI 2.1 - 2.2 Rotodynamic (Vertical) Nomenclature - 2008
- ANSI/HI 2.3 Rotodynamic (Vertical) Design and Application - 2008
- ANSI/HI 2.4 Rotodynamic (Vertical) Installation, Operation, & Maintenance - 2008
- ANSI/HI 3.1-3.5 Rotary Pump Standard - 2008
The comprehensive Master Index of ANSI/HI Pump Standards Version 2.1 leads users to the desired standard, where they will find invaluable navigation links that make it easy to locate specific information quickly.
“Now with nearly 1600 pages of content and 28 Standards in a single-user CD-ROM format, this product is a must have for anyone involved with pumps or pumping systems," remarked Gregg Romanyshyn, Technical Director for HI. “Purchasing the Standards available on CD-ROM is the easiest, most cost-efficient way for users to own and maintain the complete set of Pump Standards.”
