Technical Committees

    • Jack Claxton Headshot 2.11.20

      "The Hydraulic Institute Technical Committees consist of volunteer Institute Members, Associate Members, Standards Partners, and noted industry experts from diverse backgrounds and areas of interest. From this broad knowledge base, the committees strive to develop comprehensive industry design, application, and testing standards, guidelines, guidebooks, courses, and videos related to best practices for pumps, pump systems, and associated equipment. An exhaustive collaborative process is used to thoroughly examine, re-examine, discuss, and debate various aspects of the content of each committee deliverable. Publication occurs, quite frequently as an ANSI recognized standard, only when a consensus is reached, with the purpose of providing clarity, guidance, instruction, education, and training resources to the industry. Through this process, immense synergistic benefits are achieved for the committee participants, member companies, the Hydraulic Institute, and the global pump industry, having a value to each that far exceeds the costs of the development efforts. For these reasons and more, we invite participation in the Hydraulic Institute Technical Committees.

      Please contact for information concerning Hydraulic Institute membership options and participation on a Technical Committee.
