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
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.
pump test lab approval program is HI's latest program designed to support the
DOE's energy saving initiatives. “The Hydraulic Institute Pump Test Lap
Approval certification of our Xylem facilities in Morton Grove, Illinois, and
Seneca Falls, New York, validates our work in developing highly efficient
products and solutions for both the commercial and residential markets,” said
Chris Johnson, Director of New Product Development and Engineering, Xylem Inc.
