Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;Oct2007, Vol. 79 Issue 10, p36
The article discusses the basis of the Air Movement and Control Association (AMCA) Standard 260-07 entitled Laboratory Methods of Testing Induced Flow Fans for Rating. It states that the most reliable means of verification of the performance of high-plumedilution is through an entrained air test done by a certified laboratory. It mentions the AMCA Standard 210-99 entitled Laboratory Methods of Testing Fans for Aerodynamic Performance Rating.
