Title, Purpose, and Scope

1. Purpose:

This standard prescribes methods of laboratory testing to measure the heat rejection capabilities of remote mechanical-draft, air-cooled refrigerant condensers for refrigerating and air conditioning. The objective is to ensure uniform performance information for establishing ratings.

2. Scope:

2.1 This standard provides:

a. uniform methods of testing for obtaining performance data,
b. definition of terms,
c. specification of data to be recorded and calculation formulas, and
d. test limits and tolerances.

2.2 This standard does not cover

a. methods of test for production or field use,
b. liquid-cooled condensers, nor
c. heat reclaim condensers using less than full refrigerant liquid condensing
