The Hydraulic Institute (HI) has released its newest version of ANSI/HI Pump Standards on CD-ROM, Version 2.0. It contains the full text of all ANSI/HI Standards and features several enhanced search and navigation features.
"Now with 1,500 plus pages of content and 26 Standards in a single-user CD-ROM format, this product is a must have for anyone involved with pumps or pumping systems," said Gregg Romanyshyn, Technical Director for HI. Romanyshyn noted the inclusion of four landmark ANSI/HI Standards, new for Version 2.0:
* Effects of Liquid Viscosity on Rotodynamic Pump Performance Standard - replaces more than 40-year-old HI viscosity correction nomographs; was developed to predict the performance change of rotodynamic pumps operated on viscous liquids relative to their performance on water (ANSI/HI 9.6.7).
* Rotodynamic (Centrifugal) Slurry Pump Standard (including Slurry Pump Test) - includes slurry pump types, types of slurries, slurry limitations, slurry solids' effect on pumps, pump froth, pump wear and applications (ANSI/HI 12.1-12.6).
* Air-Operated Pump Standard - includes positive displacement reciprocating pumps used for general fluid transfer, which are driven by means of a compressed gas (ANSI/HI 10.1-10.5).
* Air-Operated Pump Test Standard - provides uniform procedures for mechanical and other pump performance testing and for recording the test results of air-operated diaphragm and bellows pumps (ANSI/HI 10.6).
In addition to expanded content, Version 2.0 includes a variety of convenient navigation features. To find specific information, users can search the extensive Master Index or click a hyperlink in the Index or Table of Contents in any individual Standard to jump directly to the desired page. In addition, all standards are in Adobe Acrobat format, allowing users to utilize bookmarks, annotations, printing and multiple page views.
ANSI/HI Pump Standards on CD-ROM Version 2.0 is available from the Hydraulic Institute at a reduced price of $750.00, with discounts available for volume purchases. HI Pump Standards are reliable, widely accepted references for anyone involved in pumps, including users, consultants, contractors, construction firms and manufacturers of pumps, seals, motors, instrumentation, controls and pump systems integrators. HI periodically introduces new Standards based on industry needs.
