System Testing
Evaluate System-Level Performance

Image of System Testing facilityIn addition to our temperature controlled-wind tunnels, the OTS laboratory includes several environmental chambers for the purposes of testing individual components, novel technologies and full HVAC&R systems. Testing is conducted for a variety of purposes to accommodate differing research and development needs. System level testing capabilities are as follows:

  • Multiple chambers available; indoor/outdoor rooms
  • Chambers ranging in size from 7’ x 7’ x 7’ to 15’ x 15’ x 15'
  • Up to 6-ton system capacity
  • Temperature control: 20°F (-7°C) to 112°F (44°C) within +/- 2.0°F (1.0°C)
  • Relative humidity control: 35% – 90%

OTS uses high accuracy equipment to provide an energy balance within 2% - 5%, where appropriate.

When laboratory conditions are not appropriate for a given system, OTS also provides field testing support through selection, installation, and monitoring of data acquisition equipment as well as full data analysis and technology review.
