The Europump Guidelines On Pump Vibration Standards Are Available On the Europump Website

24.07.2013

The Europump Technical Commission has just published its guidelines on pump vibration standards, available for free on the Europump website.

The guidelines present the essential points of each standard and explain where each standard tends to be used.

“Customers, standards organisations and our industry have been waiting for these guidelines for a long time. I am pleased to say that they are now finalised and publicly available” says Jean-Claude Bouricet, Chairman of the Europump Technical Commission. “The guidelines will help customers choose the right standards for the right application and consequently lower the cost of pumps by avoiding over-specification,” he adds. “I am grateful for the support of the Committee members and I especially would like to thank John Bower who did a tremendous job in drafting these guidelines”.

Standards can appear to be conflicting in that they present machine vibration limits in different ways and with different limiting values. The guidelines present the essential points of each standard applicable to the pump industry and explain where each one tends to should be used. The diversity of standards is probably greater on the subject of vibration than in any other field.

Customers of pump manufacturers now have a useful tool to choose the right standard for the right application. This will enable them to match needs and pumps and thus achieve the best cost/benefit ratio.

Europump stresses that the guidelines are not an alternative to studying the full content of the standards with which compliance is required. In addition the guidelines are a summary and do not contain all the conditional statements and explanations which are in the standards. Europump recommends liaising with national standards organisations.
