Packaged Pump Systems Manufacturer Achieves Prestigious Plumbing Standards Accreditation

QuantumFlo NSF 61 Low Lead CertificationFlorida-Based QuantumFlo is Awarded NSF 61 and Low Lead Certification by the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials  

(DeBary, Florida) — QuantumFlo, the world’s leading manufacturer of pre-packaged pump systems for commercial and industrial plumbing applications, has been awarded the prestigious NSF 61/ANSI Standard 61 and Low Lead Compliance certification by the International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO) for its ability to control the manufacturing quality of portable water system components.

The National Sanitation Foundation’s Standard 61 certification is a coveted accreditation by U.S. manufacturers of plumbing devices that process water for human consumption, which tests and evaluates its ability to shield them from contaminants that can lead to human health issues, in accordance with the American National Standards Institute (ANSI).

NSF 61 is an arduous certification process that evaluates all materials used on the manufacturing, the processes involved, validation from suppliers and vendors, and a thorough inspection of the manufacturer’s facilities that includes a toxicology evaluation—all designed to ensure that the products manufactures follow the highest quality and performance in the industry.

In addition to NSF 61, QuantumFlo has also been accredited with Low Lead Certification as required by Federal Legislation S.3874—a mandatory requirement that closely mirrors guidelines adopted by California in 2006 which asks manufacturers to reduce the weighted average amount of lead content that is acceptable in plumbing products carrying drinking water to a maximum of 0.25 percent.

As a manufacturer of pre-packaged pump systems and related equipment, QuantumFlo’s certification enhances its already widely-recognized leadership, providing end users with expert validation regarding the sanitary protection level of its products.

IAPMO is an independent, nationally recognized ANSI-certified third party testing organization recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Health Canada—two of North America’s premier government agencies tasked with the protection of the environment and human health.

Recent health scares about pandemics and disease outbreaks have made news because of the threat they pose to public health and NSF 61 certifies that the engineering and workmanship of QuantumFlo products is up to the challenge—reassuring its customers that they are dealing with a manufacturer who is proactive about mitigating potential health threats.

QuantumFlo’s complete product line of commercial and industrial pre-packaged pumps are covered under NSF 61 and the company and additional information on the performance and certifications of its products is available at the company’s blog at http://blog.quantumflo.com.
