The Hydraulic Institute (HI) has release three pump standards that are immediately available from the institute's e-store.
Rotodynamic (Centrifugal) Pumps for Nomenclature and Definitions (ANSI/HI 1.1-1.2-2008) covers: overhead impeller, separately coupled pumps; between bearing, separately coupled, single stage pumps; between bearing, separately coupled multistage pumps; regenerative turbine pumps; and special effects pumps. Also included are descriptions of types, nomenclature, and definitions. Priced at $85, the standard is designated by HI product code A101.
Rotodynamic (Centrifugal and Vertical) Pumps – Guideline for Condition Monitoring (ANSI/HI 9.6.5-2009) is designed to be used as a tool in implementing process safety management. It also is for general pump availability improvement programs for centrifugal and vertical pumps, including both sealed and sealless pump designs. While the document does not require that monitoring be done, this new reference tool does provide information relevant to making such decisions, and offers suggestions for carrying out the monitoring process. The standard is $75, and designated by HI product code A122.
- Pump Piping for Rotodynamic Pumps (ANSI/HI 9.6.6-2009), which initially was published a number of years ago as a two-page section within (ANSI/HI 9.8 – 1998) Pump Intake Design, has become a stand-alone publication. It covers: the effects and interactions of inlet (suction) and outlet (discharge) piping on rotodynamic pump performance; solutions for avoiding problematic situations that result from poorly designed suction piping, poorly supported piping, unrestrained or inadequately restrained expansion joints, and uncompensated thermal expansion of the piping system. Purchase price is $125 and the HI product code is A127.
