Eurovent Cer­tita Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion has in­tro­duced a new Eurovent Cer­ti­fied Per­for­mance (ECP) pro­gramme for liq­uid-to-liq­uid plate heat ex­chang­ers

This pro­gramme was de­vel­oped in 20172018 with the sup­port of a ded­i­cated com­mit­tee gath­er­ing 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 re­sult­ing re­quire­ments and rules de­fined for the LPHE pro­gramme in­volve prod- uct per­for­mance test­ing, but also pro­duc­tion site au­dit­ing and se­lec­tion tool check­ing. Th­ese act as com­ple­men­tary guar­an­tees to­wards high lev­els of per­for­mance rat­ings re­li­a­bil­ity, man­u­fac­tur­ing process steadi­ness and de­sign ad­e­quacy.

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 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).

With this new LPHE cer­ti­fi­ca­tion pro­gramme, Eurovent Cer­tita Cer­ti­fi­ca­tion and plate heat ex­changer man­u­fac­tur­ers ex­pect to rise the stan­dard in terms of a higher trans­parency and re­li­a­bil­ity of prod­ucts on the mar­ket.

Rules for LPHE pro­gramme in­volve prod­uct per­for­mance.
