Hydraulic Institute (HI)
HI standards apply to the variety of pumps used in industries such as petrochem and waste water.
The Hydraulic Institute (HI) publishes product standards for the North American pump industry.
HI plays a leading role in the development of pump standards in North America and worldwide. HI standards are developed within guidelines established by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). HI members work through a number of technical committees to develop draft standards. HI standards are developed to define pump products, installation, operation, performance, testing, and pump life and quality. ANSI/HI standards are widely referenced in other standards such as those of API, AWWA, ASME B73 and PIP, and more are accepted throughout North America and applied worldwide.
The ANSI/HI pump standards are specifically designed for use by:
- Pump users
- Manufacturers of:
- Pumps, pumping systems
- Seals, couplings, drivers
- Instrumentation and controls
- Engineering construction firms
- Pump system integrators
- Government agencies
- Libraries and universities
