Calorimetric, acoustic and aeraulic tests for the HVACR market

High performance characteristics, such cooling and heating capacity, air flow, sound power and energy efficiency play an increasingly important role in purchasing decisions in the heating, ventilation, air conditioning and refrigeration market (HVACR). IMQ has been the industry’s point of reference for many years, and its accredited laboratories provide valuable support for manufacturers.

The main tests performed for the industry include:

  • calorimetric tests: cooling and heating capacity, partial loads/cooling and heating capacity, input power, energy efficiency (EER) in cooling mode, coefficient of performance (COP) in heating mode, energy consumption, energy efficiency class for labelling (EN 14511, EN 14825, EN 1397, EUROVENT 6/3, EUROVENT 6/9, EN 1216, EN 1048)
  • aeraulic tests: volumetric air flow, static flow pressure, electrical characteristics, input power, rpm (EN 1397, CEI 107-53, ISO 5801, EUROVENT 6/3, EUROVENT 6/10)
  • acoustic tests: sound power (UNI EN ISO 3741, ISO 13347-2, EN 1397, EN 12102, EN ISO 9614-1, EN 60704-1, EN 60704-2-7EUROVENT 8/2).
