AMCA revises Standard 260 for induced-flow fans
The Air Movement and Control Association (AMCA) International Inc. recently announced the revision of ANSI/AMCA Standard 260, Laboratory Methods of Testing Induced Flow Fans for Rating.
The newly designated ANSI/AMCA Standard 260-20 establishes a uniform laboratory method for determining an induced-flow fan’s aerodynamic performance in terms of airflow rate, pressure developed, power consumption, air density, speed of rotation, and efficiency.
It is an adjunct to ANSI/AMCA Standard 210/ASHRAE Standard 51, Laboratory Methods of Testing Fans for Certified Aerodynamic Performance Rating.
The previous version of the standard, ANSI/AMCA Standard 260-13, underwent a periodic revision in 2019. A figure and some definitions were clarified during the revision.
