Standards Review

 Urgent Industry Input required.

The International Standards Organisation have requested feedback, via Standards Australia pump committee ME-030 regarding some pump standards that are due for a five yearly review.
The Pump Industry Australia, as a member of Standards Australia’s Pump Committee ME-030 is thus seeking information from its members and other organisations regarding  the following Centrifugal Pump standards:
  • ISO 2858:1975 End suction centrifugal pumps (rating 16 bar) – Designation, nominal duty point and dimensions
  • ISO 9905:1994 Technical specifications for centrifugal pumps – Class I.  This standard is for horizontal and vertical pumps for very high pressure, very high temperature or severe applications.
  • ISO 9908:1993 Technical specifications for centrifugal pumps – Class III  This standard is for horizontal and vertical pump for light applications, e.g. domestic pumps and pumps to 100kW. 
All the above standards were reconfirmed by ISO in 2017 and all are now adopted by EN.
The questions to be answered by the pump industry, that is pump suppliers and other organizations specifying or using pumps, are:
  1. Withdraw/Review/Amend/Confirm/Abstain due to lack of national expert input.
  2. Is this International  Standard utilized in this country.
  3. Is this International Standard, or its national adoption referenced in regulations in this country?
  4. If the committee decides to amend or revise, do you propose an expert and/or project leader for the development of that project?
Anyone wishing to enquire or respond should email pumpsaustralia@bigpond.com attention Executive Officer – Standards before the 31st July 2022.
