API 610 Eleventh Edition, Centrifugal Pumps for Petroleum, Petrochemical and Natural Gas Industries, is being updated to the Twelfth Edition. The Eleventh Edition was identical to the ISO 13709 Second Edition; however, API and ISO have decided to no longer “co-brand” standards and ISO 13709 Second Edition is not being updated. This tutorial addresses the background process in how the document is updated and indicates the participating companies that contributed to this work. The majority of this paper is focused on addressing the “significant” changes as well as “other’ changes that are of particular interest to the reader in understanding changes from the previous ISO/API editions. Included is the background reasoning behind each change. Insight into subject matter for future updates to ISO 13709/API 610 is addressed at the end. The Twelfth Edition draft has been circulating for comment since the second quarter of 2014. One area of particular interest in the Eleventh Edition was the data sheet program which has been improved and was expected to support electronic data interchange (EDI) for engineering contractors, end users and pump manufacturers. EDI was expected to save significant effort in accurately specifying equipment requirements. In the Twelfth Edition, a task force subgroup is again trying to enhance its use.
