Hydraulic Institute introduces member company, Armstrong Fluid Technology, as
the latest company to have their pump test laboratory approved through the HI
Pump Test Lab Approval Program. The approved pump test lab is located at 23
Bertrand Ave Toronto, Ontario, Canada M1L 2P3.
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
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.
pump test lab approval program is HI's latest program designed to support the
DOE's energy saving initiatives.
