Technical Specifications for Centrifugal Pumps - Class II
|Publication Date:||15 March 2002|
|ICS Code (Pumps):||23.080|
This International Standard specifies the requirements for Class II centrifugal pumps of single-stage, multistage, horizontal or vertical construction, with any drive and any installation for general application. Pumps used in the chemical process industries (e.g. those conforming to ISO 2858) are typical of those covered by this International Standard.
This International Standard includes design features concerned with installation, maintenance and safety for these pumps including baseplate, couplings and auxiliary piping, but it does not specify any requirements for the driver other than those related to its rated power output.
Where application of this International Standard has been called for and requires a specific design feature, alternative designs may be offered which meet the intent of this International Standard provided that the alternative is described in detail.
Pumps not complying with all the requirements of this International Standard may be offered for consideration provided that all deviations are stated.
