HI 14.6-2022


American National Standard for Rotodynamic Pumps for Hydraulic Performance Acceptance Tests
standard by Hydraulic Institute, 2022

Format: PDF



    This standard covers hydraulic performance tests for acceptance of rotodynamic pumps (centrifugal, mixed flow, and axial flow pumps), in this document referred to as pumps.

    ANSI/HI Standard 14.6 is intended for pump acceptance testing at pump test facilities, such as manufacturers’ pump test facilities or laboratories only. Industry experience shows that it is very difficult to perform measurements accurate enough to satisfy the acceptance requirements in this standard when testing is performed in the field.

    Information in the standard may be applied to rotodynamic pumps of any size and to any pumped liquids behaving as clear water (see Appendix M.1).

    This standard applies to a pump by itself without any fittings. The pump may also be tested with a combination of upstream and/or downstream fittings by prior agreement and agreed on contractually.

    There are other pump acceptance test standards for submersible (OH8A and OH8B) and sealless pumps, as defined in their respective documents, that take into account the unique features that those products exhibit. The Hydraulic Institute recommends that the user of this standard consult those respective standards (ANSI/HI 11.6 and ANSI/HI 5.1-5.6 Sealless Rotodynamic Pumps for Nomenclature, Definitions, Design, Application, Operation, and Test) to determine if one of these standards are more appropriate for the products being considered for testing.
