Pump Systems Matter and the Hydraulic Institute have announced the date of their second Pump Acceptance Testing for Rotodynamic Pumps in Water & Wastewater Facilities webinar in 2013. The session will be held September 10 at 1 p.m. EDT and will be led by Richard Rindy, test tab manager at Weir Minerals North America. The session will last approximately one hour. 

The ANSI/HI 14.6–2011 pump test standard contains updated requirements that specifically address the water and wastewater market segments. This test standard has been developed and approved by pumping experts in the water and wastewater industry. Those involved with specifying, purchasing, or testing pumps intended for these services should attend this webinar to become familiar with the latest test protocols. 

The upcoming webinar includes:

  • Interests and topics requested by those working on water and wastewater projects
  • Specific requirements for verification of performance guarantees per contract, during a factory performance test are stated
  • Pump test acceptance grades and corresponding tolerance bands are provided for selection by the purchaser
  • Four variations of NPSH testing on clear water to verify the NPSHR for the guarantee and clarification of the NPSH datum plan for various pump impeller designs
  • Permissible reading (amplitude) fluctuations are specified for each performance grade
  • Permissible measurement device uncertainty at guarantee point is specified for each performance grade 

Advance registration is required. All registered participants will receive a 20 percent off promo code to use toward the purchase of the Rotodynamic Pumps for Hydraulic Performance Acceptance Tests (ANSI/HI 14.6) standard in their registration confirmation email receipt and one PDH Credit upon completion of the webinar. Registration for the webinar is now available on the HI eStore.
