PARSIPPANY, NJ – The Hydraulic Institute announced that WILO USA LLC is the latest company to have its pump test laboratory, located in Cedarburg, Wisconsin, approved through the HI Pump Test Lab Approval Program. The HI program assists pump OEMs and other pump test laboratories improve 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 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 in the market that the stated efficiencies will be achieved.

"WILO USA LLC is pleased to have reached this high standard and proud to represent these capabilities to our channel partners and end users. The ability to demonstrate product performance and its relationship to such a reputable standard along with such an in-depth third-party audit, provides a great deal of confidence to our customers," said Jeff Plaster, Managing Director and CEO of WILO USA LLC.
