Julian Atchia

Julian Atchia, director of Engineered Products for SJE-Rhombus, was recognized by the Hydraulic Institute for his technical insight and contributions in the creation of ANSI/HI Standards.

Specifically, Mr. Atchia was recognized for his work on the standard for Rotodynamic Submersible Pumps for Hydraulic Performance, Hydrostatic Pressure, Mechanical, and Electrical Acceptance Tests, ANSI/HI 11.6-2011. This newly revised standard changes direction and represents a major departure from the previous Submersible Pump Test Standard (ANSI/HI 11.6-2001) in that the submersible pump is guaranteed and tested as a complete close-coupled unit.

HI Pump Standards are references designed for anyone involved in pumps, including users, consultants, contractors, construction firms, manufacturers of pumps, seals, motors, instrumentation, controls, and pump software developers and systems integrators. HI periodically introduces new standards based on industry needs. HI’s complete library of ANSI/HI standards for the pump industry is user-friendly, and available in both electronic and print formats at eStore.Pumps.org.
