Hydraulic Institute Publishes New Guidebook Reliability of Pumping Equipment: Guidelines for Maximizing Uptime, Availability, and Reliability

 The Hydraulic Institute (HI) recently published the Reliability of Pumping Equipment guide. This publication provides reliability insights such as expected reliability levels, monitoring approaches, and methods of improvement. Information is also included on how to identify satisfactory operation for different pump types, classes of service, and importance. Maintenance and reliability professionals looking to benchmark and improve reliability and cost of ownership will benefit from the information contained in this guide.

This guidebook:

  • Provides an overview of initial equipment selection relative to the product life expectation as well as installation recommendations that will improve system reliability
  • Classifies methods of quantifying reliability using computer maintenance management systems and identifies how to improve the reliability of bad actor systems
  • Identifies how to achieve optimal life of pumping equipment when it is correctly designed, sized, and selected for a given application and operated (and maintained) as specified
  • Categorizes solutions for analyzing, improving, and replacing existing equipment as well as defining the importance of life cycle cost analysis for new equipment

Reliability of Pumping Equipment is essential for those with an interest in improving the cost, safety, and reliability of pumps and related equipment. HI Technical Director, Pete Gaydon explains that, “This guide is a great tool for reliability professionals looking to establish upfront objectives, life expectations for pumps, expand on existing knowledge of reliability, quantify and document current reliability metrics and ultimately improve plant reliability”.

The guidebook is available in the HI eStore for $160. HI members receive a 25% discount off the regular price of the guideline. Learn more at:
