The Hydraulic Institute introduces member company, Ebara Pumps Americas Corporation, as the latest company to have their pump test laboratory, located in Rock Hill, South Carolina, approved through the HI Pump Test Lab Approval Program.
The HI program assists pump OEMs and other pump test laboratories to 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.
