Description:

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.
