Pumps using sealless technology can be supplied to the relevant international standards including API, ASME, ANSI and ISO. These relate to the compliance of pumps and their components in regard to efficiency, dimensions, design, testing and dynamics. You can be sure of complete compliance as our magnetic drive pumps are built to the relevant standards, without deviations. The manufacturing and design of HMD Kontro pumps is also fully in accordance with ISO 9001.
ASME is the registered trademark of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, the leading international developer of codes and standards associated with the art, science, and practice of mechanical engineering. ASME B73.3 is the ASME specification for sealless horizontal end suction centrifugal pumps for chemical processes. This standard applies to horizontal, end-suction, overhung, radially split, single-stage sealless pumps and defines both dimensional and best-efficiency head and capacity parameters (ASME B73.1 is the equivalent specification for mechanically sealed centrifugal pumps).
This is the International Organisation of Standards and is an independent organisation that oversees, creates, and promotes internationally accepted standards for numerous industries.
ISO 15783 is this standard specifies the requirements for sealless rotodynamic pumps which are mainly used in chemical processes, water treatment and petrochemical industries. It includes design features concerned with selection, installation, maintenance and operational safety of the pumps.
ISO 2858 is an international standard and refers to end suction centrifugal pumps and specifies the main parameters and the pump designation. It specifies the principal dimensions, mounting details and nominal duty point of end-suction centrifugal pumps having a maximum operating rating of 16 bar.
ISO 5199 specifies a variety of performance requirements including minimum bearing life and construction features such as general layout and seal configurations.
API sets the standards in the oil & gas pumping industries. The API (American Petroleum Institute) standards are used to define systems, tests and equipment design and are predominantly used in the oil and gas, petroleum and petrochemical industries. Pumps that meet these standards are some of the highest quality available in industry.
API 685 relates to sealless centrifugal pumps for use in petroleum, heavy duty petrochemical and gas industry services and covers the requirements for both magnetic drive and canned motor pumps (the equivalent API 610 standard relates to mechanically sealed pumps in the same industries).
