The Hydraulic Institute (HI) announced the re-launch of the website, www.Pumps.org .
Visitors to the site will have access to a variety of free downloads, reference materials, pump definitions, pump diagrams, information on upcoming events and news. An online Supplier Finder allows users to search for manufacturers by a variety of criteria including product description, brand name, or market.
Prospective members can learn more about the Hydraulic Institute and the services it offers in the Membership section. A membership brochure and application forms are available for download. Additionally, visitors can now access HI's extensive library of umpFAQs(r), a series of question and answer articles on a wide variety of topics published as a service to pump users, contractors, distributors, reps and OEMs on subjects of common technical concern.
"With a wealth of pump and systems information, from ANSI/HI Pump
Standards to guidebooks and educational resources to tips on saving
energy, the newly-launched site fully supports the Institute's vision, 'to be a global authority on pumps and pumping systems,'" said Mary Silver, HI's member services and technology manager.
Users can purchase ANSI/HI Pump Standards and Guidelines, books and educational materials at the newly designed e-Store, accessible from the home page at ww.pumps.org or directly at estore.pumps.org. Orders may be placed online, using the secure site, or visitors may download forms to place orders by phone or fax.
Designed in conjunction with the HI family of websites, www.PumpSystemsMatter.org  and www.PumpLearning.org , www.Pumps.org  features an updated look and improved navigation. The file folder navigation is designed to facilitate transfer across the family of websites. Drop-down menus, breadcrumbs and left-side navigation let visitors see where they have been and where they want to go on the site.
