An engineering friend has asked me if there was a specification (ISO, ANSI, etc.) for the installation of centrifugal pumps. Specifically, a double-suction split case  Goulds AC8100 series.

I had provided him with online references and "good practice" guidelines  (grouting, piping alignment, slope, testing, etc.) but I was not able to find a SPECIFICATION that covers all of these details.

Is anyone aware of such a spec?

Thanks

Perhaps this reference could help:

API RP 686 2nd Edition, December 2009. Recommended Practice for Machinery Installation and Installation Design


Description / Abstract: Purpose

This recommended practice (RP) is intended to provide recommended procedures, practices, and checklists for the installation and precommissioning of new, existing, and reapplied machinery and to assist with the installation design of such machinery for petroleum, chemical, and gas industry services facilities. In general, this RP is intended to supplement vendor instructions and the instructions provided by the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) should be carefully followed with regard to equipment installation and checkout.

Most major topics of this RP are subdivided into sections of "Installation Design" and "Installation" with the intent being that each section can be removed and used as needed by the appropriate design or installation personnel.

I guess he is picking up a 2nd hand bareshaft pump? Otherwise the vendor would be providing all of the necessary install info for it.

I don't know the details....but I would guess that he wants to make sure that whoever performs the installation is following all "best practices" and not cutting corners.
