Accredited CRP Testing Lab Opens in Singapore


AFMA Technologies Pte Ltd in July 2008 opened a new testing laboratory in Singapore, becoming the Air Movement and Control Association (AMCA) International's first independent authorized Certified Ratings Program (CRP) agent to serve the regions of Southeast Asia, the Middle East, and India.

AFMA Technologies' testing laboratory is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment and is accredited to perform both air and sound tests in accordance with AMCA International's test standards. Testing capacities will range from air volume of 650 cmh to 140,000 cmh. Damper leakage and pressure drop testing capabilities will be added later this year.

Through its administration of the CRP program, AFMA Technologies will be able to assure buyers, specifiers, and users of air movement and control equipment that published ratings are reliable and accurate. At the same time, the program assures manufacturers that competitive ratings are based on standard test methods and procedures.

Going forward, AFMA plans to use the facilities to verify energy-efficiency ratings for ventilation and air conditioning equipment. This will enhance the requirements of minimum environmental sustainability standards, ensuring that environmental quality and comfort are not compromised.
