As the global authority on pumps and pump systems, HI develops industry standards through a vast array of technical resources including application guidebooks, online tools, and calculators.
Founded in 1917, the Hydraulic Institute (HI) is the largest association of pump manufacturers in North America. As the global authority on pumps and pump systems, HI develops standards and technical resources including application guidebooks, online tools, and calculators.
In addition to collecting statistical data and providing a forum for the industry, HI manages efficiency programs that stem from its advocacy work with the US Department of Energy. The HI Energy Rating label is founded on efficient equipment and the Pump System Assessment Professional (PSAP) certification designates individuals as professionals; both programs work to promote the efficient use of pumps and pumping systems. The Institute’s educational subsidiary, Pump Systems Matter (PSM), provides product neutral training on energy efficiency, reliability, and effective applications of pump systems through an extensive catalog of live, virtual, and on-demand courses and webinars.
