Standards for Industrial Pumps: ISO and ANSI B Standards are an extremely important part of the industrial and commercial landscape. By specifying. Pentair Aurora Pump — ASME/ANSI B — Model (b) This Standard has been revised to include solid polymer pumps formerly covered under ASME B The design and construction features for metallic.

Monday, December 31, However, most manufacturers of ISO pumps have 60 Hz models available. Empowering Pumps and Equipment. This standard was developed to address the needs of the chemical industry for a robust family of single-stage end-suction centrifugal pumps. The pumps can also move liquids with or without solids based on their impeller type. Our vision is to build a digital community through websites, eNewsletters, and social media channels that allows pump industry professionals to exchange ideas, news stories, product information, case studies, videos, event information and more.

All operating manuals, type series booklets, characteristic curves, typical tenders, product brochures and corporate publications. Learn how your comment data is stahdard. However, there has been a degree of convergence as the two standards bodies borrow from each other. However, the design does not typically allow the pumps to move thicker liquids, such as oils.

Dimensions include overall height and length of the bare pump, nozzle and shaft diameters, the size, location and spacing of mounting bolts, etc. ISO a language-neutral title for the International Standards Organization traces its roots back to when delegates stahdard 25 countries met in London to discuss the future of international standards that could bridge the many national and industry-specific standards.


This American Society of Mechanical Engineers ASME standard covers process pumps of horizontal, end suction, single stage, and centerline discharge design. This article for Water Online discusses the need for a consensus body for developing a groundwater pumping systems standard to include guidance on performance requirements for pumps used in water wells.

The purpose of the standard is to ensure that other ANSI process pumps with similar sizes can be interchangeable in size of suction, location of suction, discharge nozzles, baseplates, input shafts, foundation bolt holes, and mounting dimensions. Stanxard savings from a European ISO product may just make it worth the effort. Many of the ISO certified products coming out of Europe, and Germany specifically, have impressive new energy efficient technologies that may not be available in their ANSI counterparts.

Activation is valid for this visit only. In some aspects e. All of this standafd to competitive markets and economic efficiency. Please enter your name here. This article will focus on a comparison of two important sets of standards for industrial pumps: Although mostly used in the chemical industry, ANSI process pumps are also used in food processing, paper mills, pulp mills, refineries, ethanol production, textiles, and various other process plant applications.

There are now more than 19, international standards covering many aspects of technology and business.

A review of ISO and ANSI pump standards | KSB

Number wise, ANSI process pumps have flow rate ranges between 10 to 5, gallons per minute, or 38 to 18, liters per minute. ANSI process pumps conform across manufacturers and allow the buyer to switch pumps and brands without having to change or redesign motor attachment, coupling, piping location, or bedplate dimensions.

Standards also guarantee an important degree of interoperability between products from different manufacturers.


b731 It covers metallic and solid polymer pumps and is designed to facilitate installation and maintenance, as well as to enhance the safety and durability of ANSI B Powerful Tools standaard Power Generation. By specifying standards-compliant products, buyers can be assured that the items they acquire will meet important performance and safety requirements, even if they come from companies that the buyers have never dealt with before.

Empowering Pumps is the information and connection hub for the global pump industry.


The total head pressure ranges from 50 g73.1 feet 22 to psiand horsepower from 1. Given the end suction and centrifugal design of ANSI process pumps, they are ideal for transferring water and mostly thin liquids. The older ISO focussed on external dimensions and mounting details, while ISO also specifies a variety of performance requirements e.

In addition, ANSI pumps only meet one standard so they are difficult or not feasible as replacements for other types of centrifugal pumps. Please enter your comment! Backflow Testing…Working in a field that Makes a Difference.

Pumps must meet dimensional interchangeability requirements and contain special features for installation and maintenance. Standards are an extremely important part of the industrial and commercial landscape. Share on Initially, the social media buttons are deactivated for data privacy and protection reasons.
