Scope of Standard:
This standard includes recommendations for assessment of applied nozzle loads for the following pump types. When specified by the user, pumps supplied shall conform to these requirements.
Many other pump types are not included because of the different designs that are unique to each manufacturer. For pump types outside the scope of this standard, allowable nozzle loads should be established by the pump manufacturer, applied nozzle loads predicted by the purchaser, and differences, if any, negotiated and resolved by the two parties.
For assessment of applied nozzle loads for slurry pumps, see ANSI/HI 12.1-12.6 Rotodynamic (Centrifugal) Slurry Pumps for Nomenclature, Definitions, Applications, and Operation.
