Metropolitan’s State of the Art Test Lab

Hydrostatic, performance, and system testing is performed on Metropolitan’s packaged systems to ensure system integration performance meets customer specifications.

Pumps or systems can be certified to Hydraulic Institute Standards
by a Professional Engineer (p.e.) registered in the State of Illinois.

Many different types of pumps, controls, and systems including
self-priming pumps, centrifugal pumps, submersible pumps,
multi-stage pumps, pressure reducing valves, control systems
operating with mechanical components and instrumentation,
and more have been tested.
