NSF/ANSI 61 is the US national standard for components of drinking water systems. Meeting the requirements of this standard ensures that the material contents, manufacturing and handling are safe and will not cause contamination. For those in the water systems industry this is especially important, as 95% of products handle water for human or livestock consumption.
Franklin Electric’s primary focus is safety and quality. Franklin 4-inch submersible products have always used NSF/ANSI 61 approved or compliant materials, and for many years our submersible motors have been classified to this standard by Underwriters Laboratories. This past year, Franklin Electric and its suppliers have worked with CSA International to formally certify the premium 4-inch submersible high capacity pump line to the NSF/ANSI 61 standard.
On July 11, 2011 we received notification that the certification process was complete. With the receipt of this certification, Franklin Electric is proud to announce that all 4-inch submersible pumps used in drinking water applications now comply with the NSF/ANSI 61 standard.
