Regulations

Eurapo laboratories (provided with climatic chamber, two aeraulic tunnels and two reverberation rooms), are equipped to perform and comply with all performance tests required by the market, in compliance with applicable regulations, in particular:

EN 1397:2001 - Test procedures for establishing the performance of heat exchangers and hydronic fan coil units
EUROVENT 6/3 - Thermal test method for fan coil units
EUROVENT 6/11 - Thermal test method for ducted fan coil units
ISO 5801:2009 (and former UNI 10531) - Performance testing of industrial fans using standardized airways
ISO 5221 - Methods of measuring air flow rates in an air duct
EUROVENT 6/10 - Airflow test method for ducted fan coil units
UNI EN ISO 3740:2002 - Guidelines for determination of sound power levels of noise sources
UNI EN ISO 3741 - Precision methods for reverberation test rooms for determining sound power levels of noise sources
UNI EN ISO 5135 - Determination of sound power levels of noise from air-terminal devices, air-terminal units, dampers and valves by measurement in a reverberation room
EUROVENT 8/2 - Acoustical testing of fan coil units in reverberation room
EUROVENT 8/12 - Sound test method for ducted fan coil units
• Commission Regulations EU No. 327/2011 and EU No. 206/2012 implementing the Directive 2099/125/CE with regard to ecodesign requirements for air conditioners and comfort fans
• Commission Regulation EU No 626/2011 supplementing Directive 2010/30/EU with regard to energy labelling of residential ventilation units

Running tests involves the use of experimental devices that need to comply with some basic requirements:

• offer a precise standard for running tests methods to ensure comparability between tests results performed by different laboratories
• ensure the absence of serious procedural errors (wrong positioning of the measurement points, use of correct formulations and acceptable assumptions)
• allow a proper evaluation of experimental uncertainties
• comply with the correct application field of the tested unit and compensate, if necessary, deviations coming from the measurement system
• ensure an operating mode of the tested unit in accordance with its designed specifications
