The HI is committed to developing standards, technical resources and programs that benefit the pump manufacturing industry and pump system owner-operators.
Working alongside member companies, Engineered Software Inc. and Intelliquip LLC, the tools help manufacturers comply with the Department of Energy (DOE) pump energy conservation standard which was released in January 2016 and help them prepare to meet the 2020 compliance and labeling requirements.
 
Designed to be used in-house and integrated into OEM testing programs, Engineered Software Inc.’s macro enabled, excel-based tool is exclusively available to HI members.  The online tool, developed by Intelliquip LLC, calculates PEI and presents it in a way that can also be uploaded into the HI Energy Rating Program.
 
Both tools will help manufacturer’s determine their pumps’ PEI according to DOE Regulations.  Each tool walks the user through the calculation process according to the pump type and the requisite section of the DOE test procedure.  Data is collected throughout the process and help text is provided to explain the meaning of different values and the testing options.
 
These PEI calculators will integrate with the HI Energy Rating Program scheduled for public release in mid-2017.
