The Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute (ARI) announced it has launched a new certification program for liquid to liquid heat exchangers. The new program joins 22 other ARI-administered certification programs to designate heating, ventilation, air-conditioning, and refrigeration product performance.
According to ARI, the goal of the certification program is to provide a common method for evaluation of the thermal performance of liquid to liquid heat exchangers and to give consumers confidence in the equipment they purchase.
ARI's Liquid to Liquid Heat Exchangers Certification Program is open to any domestic and/or international manufacturer of plate and/or shell-type liquid to liquid heat exchangers. The equipment is tested in accordance with ANSI/ARI Standard 400-2001 with Addendum 1, "Liquid to Liquid Heat Exchangers." Certification and the use of the ARI certification symbol is only granted for products that, when tested through the program, meet or exceed the manufacturer's published thermal performance ratings.
Particular products can be checked to verify ARI certification at www.ariprimenet.org.
