TAPPI And Hydraulic Institute Announce Partnership
TAPPI and The Hydraulic Institute (HI) announced today that they have partnered to provide
their members and visitors to their respective web sites with important information. It involves a direct link to
purchase industry leading pump standards specific to pumps installed or required in the pulp and paper industry.
Pulp and paper mills are pump intensive facilities, with an average of 150 to 200 pumps per mill. Specific HI
standards are useful supplements to the TAPPI library of standards. By utilizing HI standards, pulp and paper
companies can increase pumps and systems reliability, accurately determine pump performance, reduce life cycle
costs and energy, decrease design costs and avoid miscommunication.
Hydraulic Institute has created a customized page on their website designed to simplify the process of locating and
purchasing the standards that are most valuable for pump professionals in the pulp and paper industry. HI and TAPPI offer a wealth of resources for pulp and paper industry professionals and engineering consulting firms,
including access to valuable information on the latest technological developments, opportunities for professional
growth and development, and one-on-one information exchange opportunities.
TAPPI members can find information on industry-recognized Technical Information Papers (TIPs) and Standards
online on TAPPI’s website. The Hydraulic Institute (HI) is the largest association of pump producers and suppliers to the pump industry in
North America and is a global authority on pumps and pumping systems. Its mission is to serve as a forum for
the exchange of industry information, while providing value-added services to member companies and pump
users worldwide. This includes the development and delivery of comprehensive industry standards, as well as
the expansion of knowledge that effectively advances the application, testing, installation, operation and
maintenance of pumps and pumping systems.
