This content provides you with a sample Fan Performance Test Procedure in the manufacturing vendor shop.
This article is a supplementary article for the Third Party Inspection for Fan and Blower article. Please review this article first; we will wait here for you.
This content can also be included as part of the fan factory acceptance test.
1. Scope And Field Of Application
The present operative has the scope to define the operating modalities and acceptance criteria for the performance test of fan.
Performance test at inlet
Measure of pressure points on duct installed on inlet of fan;
The Quality Control operator (QC) must:
The Technical manager (TM) must:
The Quality Assurance manager (QAM) must verify the right test execution.
5. Operative Conditions
The test technical limits for fans running test are:
The test is performed according to ASME PTC 11 -2008 according to Volume Flow Rate – Pressure approach and the scope is to verify the contractual performance point of characteristic curve of fan.
The test is performed using n° 3, or more, different diaphragms chosen so to mach the equivalent diameter of resistant circuit.
The test media will be air. The conversion from test condition data to design ones will be performed according to AMCA 210.
