OUR TEST CHAMBER

DESIGNED ACCORDING TO AMCA 210-16 AND ISO 5801-2017

AN ESSENTIAL TOOL FOR DEVELOPING OPTIMIZED FANS AND AIR MOVING PRODUCTS


As part of our commitment to offer more value to our customers and improve the performance and efficiency of our products, HW Ventilation has recently built and installed a new test chamber in Rescaldina.

The chamber will be used for three main purposes:

  • testing of the performance and efficiency of our fans and ventilators
  • testing the performance of our customers’ products
  • design and development of new efficient products and optimization of existing products

Our new test chamber has been designed in compliance with international standards AMCA 210-16 and ISO 5801-2017. According to AMCA 210-16, our chamber configuration is: Figure 15 – Inlet Chamber Setup – Multiple Nozzles In Chamber.

The chamber is mainly made of reinforced steel sheets. It has a 2500 x 2500 mm square section and it is 12 m long.

Our chamber can be used to measure airflows in the range between 0,1 m3/s and 10 m3/s, and pressures in the range between -1000 Pa and +1000 Pa.

Our test chamber can be utilized for testing the following categories of product:

  • axial ventilators with diameters up to 1250 mm and power up to 7,5 kW
  • axial impellers with diameters up to 1250 mm and power up to 7,5 kW, using the torque bench

Adding proper additional tools, we can also test:

  • centrifugal fans with inlet section area up to 1,2 m2 and power up to 7,5 kW
  • components and parts of ventilation/suction plants
  • components and parts of radiators and engine cooling systems

The setting of the test chamber is done through a LabVIEW-based acquisition and management software, specifically adapted to perform what follows:

  • configuration of the nozzles
  • setting of the working point, through the control of damper and aux ventilator
  • real time display of physical quantities and performance curves acquired by the instruments in the chamber
  • generation of accurate test reports
