This webinar series is based on the Hydraulic Institute’s Intake Design for Rotodynamic Pumps (ANSI/HI 9.8–2018) Standard. The standard enables designers, owners, and users to configure functional pumping facility designs and provides remedial measures for problem intakes.

This webinar series visually aids the standard’s overview of design objectives, required inlet bell design diameter, submergence requirements, using the standard for proper instructions on intake structures for clear liquids and solids-handling pumps, highlights of key technologies used when designing the pump intake including physical and computation fluid dynamics (CFD). Key learning objectives to take away from this webinar series are to identify issues and considerations when designing a pump intake, highlight tools that are available to the engineer, and how to use the standard effectively and comply with the industry regulations. Design engineers, research laboratory specialists, engineering contractors, consulting engineers, trainers, maintenance staff, and end user operators will benefit from the information provided in this webinar series.
