AMCA Receives ASHRAE Test Fan Project

The Air Movement and Control Assn. International’s (AMCA) testing laboratory is underway with an ASHRAE Research Project RP1272, called “Inlet Installation Effects on Forward Curved Centrifugal Fans, Air and Sound.” The goal of this project is to obtain a body of measured inlet system effects for a typical forward curved centrifugal fan using ANSI/AMCA 210/ASHRAE 51 and AMCA 300 standards.

The Air Movement and Control Assn. International’s (AMCA) testing laboratory is underway with an ASHRAE Research Project RP1272, called “Inlet Installation Effects on Forward Curved Centrifugal Fans, Air and Sound.” The goal of this project is to obtain a body of measured inlet system effects for a typical forward curved centrifugal fan using ANSI/AMCA 210/ASHRAE 51 and AMCA 300 standards.

To date, all of the air performance tests have been completed. Upon meeting with the project monitoring subcommittee at ASHRAE’s annual meeting in Long Beach, Calif., AMCA was approved by the project monitoring subcommittee to proceed with the acoustic testing portion of the research project.
