DOE Publishes a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, Public Meeting and Request for Information Pertaining to Test Procedures for Circulator Pumps

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) has published a Federal Register notice proposing to establish definitions, a test procedure, sampling and rating requirements, and enforcement provisions for circulator pumps. Currently, circulator pumps are not subject to DOE test procedures or energy conservation standards. DOE proposes a test procedure for measuring the circulator energy index for circulator pumps. The proposed test method references the relevant industry test standard. The proposed definitions and test procedures are based on the recommendations of the Circulator Pump Working Group, which was established under the Appliance Standards Rulemaking Federal Advisory Committee. DOE is seeking comment from interested parties on the proposal.
