The Hydraulic Institute introduces member company, Xylem Applied Water System, as the latest company to have their pump test laboratories approved through the HI Pump Test Lab Approval Program. The approved pump test labs, Xylem Seneca Falls Research and Development Lab is located at 2881 East Bayard St. Seneca Falls, NY and Xylem Morton Grove Research and Development Lab is located at 8200 N. Austin Ave. Morton Grove, IL.
The HI program assists pump OEMs and other pump test laboratories improve their current laboratory procedures and policies by working with an experienced third-party auditor to develop and maintain accurate, uniform and repeatable pump testing protocols. The program also helps participating organizations adhere to the requirements of the international test laboratory accreditation standard (ISO 17025) concerning test measurement equipment.
As the DOE requires increased efficiencies for commercial and industrial pumps, a manufacturer's ability to demonstrate accurate pump performance will be an important part of compliance. Performing these tests in a lab that not only applies the industry standard (HI 40.7) but also stands up to an independent third party audit will build confidence in the market that the stated efficiencies will be achieved.
The pump test lab approval program is HI's latest program designed to support the DOE's energy saving initiatives. “The Hydraulic Institute Pump Test Lap Approval certification of our Xylem facilities in Morton Grove, Illinois, and Seneca Falls, New York, validates our work in developing highly efficient products and solutions for both the commercial and residential markets,” said Chris Johnson, Director of New Product Development and Engineering, Xylem Inc.
