Blower & Fan Performance Testing

MSI performs performance testing of blowers and fans, with our laboratory and test methods meeting ANSI/AMCA 210-07 & ANSI/ASHRAE 51-07 standards.  Our motor can provide up to 150 HP and is VFD driven to accommodate various fan speeds.  We have a remote operated throttling device to enable measuring performance curves at multiple operating speeds.  Our test facility can accommodate test rigs over 40′ long.  We can provide up to 300 channels of data acquisition, including torque measurement using strain gauges with RF telemetry, tachometers, pressure transducers, thermocouples, accelerometers, proximity probes, and more.  To supplement AMCA standards for low static head applications, pressure sensing pitot tubes are also available.
