PARSIPPANY, NJ - - The
Hydraulic Institute (HI) has updated the ANSI/HI Standard for Rotary Pump Tests
version 2000 and has introduced ANSI/HI 3.6–2010, Rotary Pump Tests. This
updated standard applies to industrial/commercial rotary positive displacement
pumps and includes detailed procedures on the setup and methods for conducting
hydrostatic test and performance tests of such pumps. ANSI/HI 3.6-2010 is
immediately available for purchase through the HI online retail store,
include: complete reformatting of the standard to a one-column layout for
easier reading; use of larger graphics and figures; and more detailed
descriptions, particularly in terminology sections. Also included is an
equation for pump output power.
The new standard provides
the most current testing procedures and acceptable deviation of dependent test
quantities from specified values for Type III and Type IV testing and is
intended for use by all testing facilities. The objective of ANSI/HI 3.6-2010
is to establish a uniform demonstration of a pump’s ability to perform
satisfactorily both mechanically and hydraulically.
