Taco Inc.’s pump test laboratory in Cranston, R.I., recently was approved through the Hydraulic Institute (HI) Pump Test Lab Approval Program (PTLAP).

The HI program helps pump OEMs and others improve their laboratory procedures and policies by working with an experienced third-party auditor to develop and maintain accurate, uniform, and repeatable pump testing protocols. The program also helps participating organizations adhere to the requirements of the international test-laboratory accreditation standard (ISO 17025) concerning test measurement equipment.
