MEETING HIGHLIGHTSLunch: Technical Affairs UpdateWednesday, June 26, 12 – 1:15 pmMick Cropper, Director, Product Development, Sulzer Pumps (US) Inc; and Vice President, HI Technical AffairsHI’s technical members have made great strides in area of standards review/update and new development and have been working diligently on new standards and technical documents related to Pumping Systems. They have also been providing content for, and presenting educational webinars to the pump community. Be sure to attend this informative update and let HI Staff know in advance if you would like to learn about any special topics or if you have any questions you would like to have addressed. Contact Gregg Romanyshyn at gromanyshyn@Pumps.org or 973.267.9700 x114 to share your requests and suggestions.
Structured Authoring Training SessionThursday, June 27, 8 – 10 amA must-attend session for all HI members and standards partners involved in the HI standards development process. HI will soon replace our antiquated SiteScape collaboration system with a new webbased platform that will support the authoring, review, and approval of all HI standards. At this presentation you will learn how to use the new Componize for Alfresco system, adopt best committee practices for the most effective use of the system, and apply new procedures for streamlining HI standards development.
Lunch: Pump Knowledge Workshop – Gearboxes in Pump ApplicationsThursday, June 27, 12 – 1:30 pmSudhakar Rao, Director, Industrial & Aftermarket Engineering; and Gayle Quinlan, Director of OEM Sales – Water Management Market, Philadelphia GearPlease join us for an introduction to gearboxes in pump applications including details on configurations, sizing, efficiency, service factor, and peripheral custom installation components. We will review key factors that influence developing long lifecycle solutions as well as design specification criteria. Philadelphia Gear designs and manufactures standard and custom gear drives per AGMA and API standards for pump applications. These drives include lube systems that have shaft driven or motor driven pumps. Philadelphia Gear is ISO certified and a founding member of AGMA.
Department of Energy UpdateFriday, June 28, 7 – 8 amJoin us for an update on the DOE pump efficiency rule-making. Our purpose is to keep HI members informed on progress HI is making with the U.S. DOE and EENGOs on this strategically important issue. This session is for CEOs, marketing executives, engineers and others in leadership positions within pump companies and/or supplier companies as HI advances concepts of “MEI” and “Extended Product” to DOE and others. Keep abreast of the DOE rule-making process so that you and your management team can anticipate the future and plan for its potential consequences.
Lunch: Pump Knowledge Workshop – Sustainability and Performance ContractingFriday, June 28, 12 – 1:30 pmRose Shaver, Manager, Sustainability Services, Schneider Electric, Professional ServicesThe Pumping Equipment Sector is facing increased pressures for sustainability performance. This performance may come in the form of an investor or client request. Some new pressures are being driven by regulatory changes such as Conflict Minerals disclosure. This session will provide case studies on how global industrial manufacturers are responding to these pressures. Participants will also be given a roadmap to take back to their organizations for discussion.
Pump Test Lab Certification & Pump Labeling (more information Friday, June 28, 1:30 – 3:30 pmAssociated with the DOE pump efficiency rule-making, the HI Board has agreed to pursue a lab certification and labeling scheme for pumps. The Institute has organized a new committee to develop recommendations and an action plan. A new pump test standard to support the DOE rule-making is also being developed. In this regard the committee will provide an oversight role in reviewing, making recommendations and providing guidance to ensure that the new test standard will meet the requirements of DOE. HI will be explore future role(s) associated with certified bodies to accredit manufacturer test labs for certified testing, and HI establishing a label to reflect pump efficiency. Branding concepts, like “HI Efficiency Pumps,” will be explored as will a scheme to label “Extended Product” (i.e. a package including the pump, motor, drive, and controls) which will yield significantly greater energy savings. A new HI efficiency branding program will facilitate the increased adoption of DOE regulated products in the mark etplace. To become involved please contact Stacey Maloney, Government Affairs & Board Administrator at smaloney@Pumps.org.
