PARSIPPANY, NJ – Patterson Pump Co. is the latest company to have its pump test laboratory approved through the HI Pump Test Lab Approval Program from the Hydraulic Institute (HI). The approved pump test lab is located at 2129 Ayersville Road, Toccoa, Georgia.

The HI program assists pump OEMs and other pump test laboratories in improving their current laboratory procedures and policies by working with an experienced third-party auditor to develop and maintain accurate, uniform and repeatable pump testing protocols. The program also helps participating organizations adhere to the requirements of the international test laboratory accreditation standard (ISO 17025) concerning test measurement equipment.

As the Department of Energy (DOE) requires increased efficiencies for commercial and industrial pumps, a manufacturer's ability to demonstrate accurate pump performance will be an important part of compliance. Performing these tests in a lab that not only applies the industry standard (HI 40.7) but also stands up to an independent third-party audit will build confidence that the stated efficiencies will be achieved.

The pump test lab approval program is HI's latest program designed to support the DOE's energy saving initiatives. “This accreditation illustrates Patterson’s commitment to comply with industry standards for determining pump efficiency and energy consumption through accurate and reliable testing practices. This along with innovative design techniques will help our customers prepare today for tomorrow’s world,” said Alex Moser, Engineering Manager, Patterson Pump Co.

In addition to supporting of the DOE’s initiatives, Patterson Pump Co. upholds its commitment to customers. “Receipt of the Hydraulic Institute’s Pump Test Lab Approval certification is a major milestone for Patterson Pump Company. This approval exhibits our commitment to continuous improvement and fulfilling the customer’s pursuit of superior pump efficiency and energy savings. We are proud to be an industry partner with Hydraulic Institute to build confidence in the marketplace and provide for energy-efficient pumping solutions,” said Kerby Pope, Assistant General Manager, Patterson Pump Co.
