Creating the perfect test environment
As the development of new cooling technologies grows, testing facilities which can evaluate units and systems against Australian standards, in tightly controlled conditions, are critical to the product development process.
National HVAC Performance Test Facility
Our National Heating, Ventilation and Air-Conditioning (HVAC) Performance Test Facility has been designed to undertake testing of air conditioners and heat pumps, and solar cooling technologies under a range of conditions. The cooling and heating capacities, and electrical power consumption and efficiency are measured and reported.
The facility incorporates two balanced ambient calorimeter rooms and is able to test prototype and commercial products between 1.5kW and 22kW capacities.
Close control reconditioning equipment is able to maintain each room at steady temperatures and humidities, or steady heat loads. The facility can also conduct transient testing where temperatures and heat loads vary to simulate a daily ambient temperature and indoor heat load profile.
The facility is able to test unitary, split system, ducted and package type units, and also water source units.
Australia's most comprehensive testing facilities
The facilities we have created, combined with our knowledge and expertise, has created Australia's most comprehensive testing and research facility spanning cooling and heating.
The National HVAC Performance Test Facility, in particular, is Australia's leading HVAC test facility, able to evaluate prototypes and commercial products at rated conditions or across the full range of transient operating conditions
