Nuremberg, Germany, 17 October 2018: Eurovent Certita Certification has introduced a new Eurovent Certified Performance (ECP) programme for liquid-to-liquid plate heat exchangers to be presented at Chillventa 2018, in Nuremberg, Germany, the association said in a Press communiqué.

According to Eurovent, this programme was developed in 2017-2018 with the support of a dedicated committee of three major European manufacturers. The development of the programme also involved consultation of European testing laboratories to elaborate a specific and adequate test method based on, among others, the EN 1148:1999+A.1:2005 standard, the communiqué said.

The scope of the programme covers gasketed plate heat exchangers, brazed plate heat exchangers and fusion-bonded plate heat exchangers, used in single-phase heat exchange applications in the HVACR sector, the communiqué said. The certified performances include the pressure drop (for primary and secondary sides) and the heat exchange capacity of the plate heat exchanger operated with clean water or clean aqueous solutions (ethylene or propylene glycol, but also ethanol), the communiqué further said. With this new LPHE certification programme, Eurovent Certita Certification and plate heat exchanger manufacturers expect to raise the standard, in terms of higher transparency and reliability of products on the market, the communiqué added.

According to Eurovent, interested manufacturers can visit the Eurovent Certita Certification stand during Chillventa, being held from October 16-18, in Hall 6 / 6-105 or attend the dedicated conference on October 17, at the Specialist Forum, in Hall 9 / 9-531.
