About Us

Since 1917, the Hydraulic Institute (HI) has served member companies and pump users by providing standards, guidelines, training and certification while serving as a forum for the exchange of industry information. A 501(c)6 nonprofit organization, HI has established itself as the voice of the North American pump industry and has become the world’s resource for pumping solutions by: addressing pump systems, developing standards, expanding knowledge and resources, educating the marketplace and advocating for the industry.

Pump Systems Matter (PSM) is a nonprofit 501(c)3 subsidiary of the Hydraulic Institute. A leading training authority on pumps and pumping systems, PSM provides product-neutral training on energy efficiency, reliability and effective application of pump systems. PSM materials are available through live courses, e-learning and both live and on-demand webinars. Live courses and webinars may also be eligible for PDHs or CEUs. Please see each course description for details.

To achieve its shared goal of improving pump system efficiency and awareness, HI and PSM enlist the support of members and partners—organizations and individuals who are committed to improving pump system reliability and achieving energy savings.
