Two of the chambers can accommodate airflow rates up to 65, cubic feet per minute and static pressures ammca to 10 inches of water while the third high pressure chamber can handle airflow rates up to 10, cubic feet per minute and static pressures up to 80 inches of water. Twin City Fan Companies, Ltd. Standards Subscriptions from ANSI provides a money-saving, multi-user solution for accessing standards. Standards Subsctiption may be the perfect solution.

For end-users footing monthly electrical bills, efficiency is important along with the assurance that the equipment delivers the specified output. With fans, it is now commonplace to put performance guarantees in place when purchasing new equipment which specify volume flow, pressure requirements and expectations for efficiency or power that have to be met.

Kaufman and Mats A.

All you need to read in the other general jounals Amcw ; Manufacturing Plant – Modified AMCA Guidelines Another option for determining the airflow performance of fans that are too large for our chambers is to perform an airflow measurement test using guidelines from AMCA publication at one of our manufacturing plants.

When testing any fan in the field, the overall system must be carefully taken into consideration to accurately determine where the measurements will be taken and if there are any system elements that may negatively affect the fan performance. Standard became widely accepted and known as virtually the only standard used in the United States and Canada.


When NAFM combined with Amda and IUHA, the organization’s major concern was the amfa and practicality of the pitot traverse method of testing, and a committee was formed to study various test methods and develop a new test code. You do not have access to this content.

This is often due to differences in the actual system resistance compared to what was predicted by the original design calculations as well as difficulties of adjusting system resistance and maintaining system stability with a process operating on line.

It is best known for its ratings in fan balance and vibration, aerodynamic performance, air density, speed and efficiency. We have no amendments or corrections for this standard. Views Read Edit View history.
