LOW-GLOBAL-WARMING CHEMICALS AND REFRIGERANT TECHNOLOGIES (ATMOSPHERIC PROTECTION BRANCH, APPCD, NRMRL)
The Atmospheric Protection Branch's Refrigeration Applications Laboratory has the capability to test several types of refrigeration equipment with various refrigerants. Refrigeration compressors are tested according to the ANSI/ASHRAE 23-1993 Test Standard and under various operating conditions. Two compressor caloimeters are available to test compressors having capacities from 250 to 10,000 BTU/hr and from 17,000 to 51,000 BTU/hr. The low-range calorimeter has been modified to handle low-pressure refrigerants. Household refrigerator/freezers are tested according to ANSI/AHAM HRF-1-1988 Energy Consumption Test Standard and under other conditions. This laboratory has the capability to test foreign manufactured refrigerator/freezers that have various electrical voltages and frequencies. Commercial refrigerated display cases are tested according to the ANSI/ASHRAE 72-1983 Test Standard as well as other conditions.
