ANSI/HI Pump Standards are available in both hardcopy and secure PDF formats. Secure PDFs are immediately downloadable and incur no shipping or handling charges. Standards in this format are a single user license and require a one-time authorization using an Adobe-approved plug-in from FileOpen Systems.
ANSI/HI 1.1-1.2 offers a basic educational overview on rotodynamic centrifugal pumps, providing nomenclature and definitions that apply to different parts of pumps.
Scope: ANSI/HI 1.3 covers pump classifications, industry nomenclature, mechanical features, performance selection criteria and noise levels pertaining to the selection of the right rotodynamic pump for a specific application.
Scope: ANSI/HI 1.4 serves as a guide in creating a pump manual so users have complete information on pump installation, operations and maintenance.
Scope: ANSI/HI 5.1-5.6 offers a basic educational overview on sealless rotodynamic pumps including design and application considerations related to the selection of the right pump for a specific industry use, pump operating and maintenance procedures as well as different types of tests that can be conducted on pumps to ensure their performance.
Scope: ANSI/HI 9.1-9.5 provides general guidelines on how to measure sound levels and decontaminate returned part pumps for a large variety of positive displacement and kinetic pumps.
Scope: Today’s higher speed, higher energy density pumps might not achieve acceptable service life without an adequate NPSH Margin that ensures pumps operate without excessive vibration and cavitation. ANSI/HI 9.6.1 serves as a guideline for NPSH margin for rotodynamic pumps with power levels as high as 5300 hp and impeller tip speeds less than 130 feet per second.
Scope: This standard includes recommendations for assessment of applied nozzle loads for various pump types
Scope: ANSI/HI 9.6.3 discusses the effects of operating a rotodynamic pump at flow rates greater than or less than the rate of flow at the pump’s best efficiency point (BEP). As these effects influence the power consumption and life of pump components, considering the operating rate of flow is essential to reliable, efficient pump operation.
Scope: ANSI/HI 9.6.4 pertains to evaluation of vibration when the vibration measurements are made on stationary parts associated with bearings (bearing housings) of rotodynamic pumps. It provides specific maximum allowable vibration values measured on bearing housings of rotodynamic pumps in field and factory test environments.
This standard applies to the evaluation of vibration on rotodynamic pump applications absorbing more than 2 kW (3 hp).
Scope: ANSI/HI 9.6.5 offers pump monitoring and failure detection techniques for rotodynamic pumps, both sealed and sealless designs.
Scope: ANSI/HI 9.6.6 details pump piping requirements for rotodynamic pumps and effects of inlet/outlet piping on pump performance. Standards are applicable to all piping downstream and upstream from the pump but not when entering tank, vessel or intake structure.
Scope: ANSI/HI 9.6.7 outlines the method for predicting performance of rotodynamic pumps in Newtonian liquids of viscosity greater than water. The standard applies to single and multi-stage rotodynamic pumps having radial impellers ns = 60, (Ns = 3000), handling liquids exhibiting Newtonian behavior, and a kinematic viscosity greater than 1 and less than 4000 centistokes.
These centrifugal pump standards, developed by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers,are sold through the Hydraulic Institute in secure PDF format.
