John Crane’s Chief Engineer recognized for contributions to latest ANSI/HI Pump Standards

The Hydraulic Institute is recognizing John Crane’s chief engineer, Ralph Gabriel, for his leadership in the creation of the latest edition of the American National Standards Institute/ Hydraulic Institute (ANSI/HI) Pump Standards.

PRLog - June 2, 2011 - MORTON GROVE, Ill. -- MORTON GROVE, Ill. –The Hydraulic Institute is recognizing John Crane’s Chief Engineer, Ralph Gabriel, for his leadership in the creation of the latest edition of the American National Standards Institute/ Hydraulic Institute (ANSI/HI) Pump Standards. These standards are a collection of widely accepted references for pump users in a variety of industries.  

“We value the support that John Crane provides to the Hydraulic Institute,” says Bob Asdal, the institute’s executive director.

Gabriel served on a committee that produced Rotodynamic (Centrifugal) Pumps for Manuals Describing Installation, Operation, and Maintenance, ANSI/HI 1.4-2010. This new standard establishes a convention that will ensure consistency in installation, operations and maintenance (IOM) manuals and make it easier for pump users to locate IOM information in their vendor manuals. The standard’s organization is fully harmonized with the standard for rotodynamic (vertical) pumps in the ANSI/HI Pump Standards’ 2008 edition.

In addition, Gabriel was a member of a committee that developed the electronic data exchange (EDE) processes outlined in the new Electronic Data Exchange for Pumping Equipment, HI 50.7-2010. This new standard encourages migration to electronic data to save time and money while ensuring accurate data preservation.

Hydraulic Institute’s complete library of ANSI/HI standards for the pump industry is available in electronic and print formats at eStore.Pumps.org.
