The Hydraulic Institute (HI,, under the approval of the American National Standards Institute (ANSI,, is seeking qualified individuals in North America to participate in the review process for the draft of the updated standard ANSI/HI 9.6.2, Rotodynamic (Centrifugal and Vertical) Pumps – Allowable Nozzle Loads.

This standard applies to:
a) Horizontal end-suction single stage
b) Vertical in-line single stage
c) Axial split-case, single and two stage
d) Vertical turbine short set pumps

Many other pump types are not included because of the different designs that are unique to each manufacturer.
Individuals and organizations in North America directly and materially affected by this standard are asked to contact HI. These parties include pump users and specifiers, producers, standards developers, government agencies, and general interest groups. HI is currently assembling a canvass list of all parties interested in reviewing the draft. This list will be submitted to ANSI in order to meet its open canvass requirements.

To participate in the ANSI/HI canvass, contact Karen Anderson, administrator, Technical Affairs, at or call 973 267-9700, ext. 23.
