Hydraulic Institute introduces member company, Crane Pump & Systems, 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 430 3rd
Street, Piqua, OH.
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. “Crane Pumps & Systems is pleased to add
the Hydraulic Institute certification to its list of lab accreditation.” said
Mark Kowalak, VP of Engineering for Crane Pumps & Systems. “Having our pump
test laboratory approved through the HI Pump Test Lab Approval Program
highlights our commitment to provide customers with market leading products and
solutions as we prepare for the implementation of the new DOE energy efficiency
