ORLANDO, Fla. - Intertek, a leader in testing, inspection and certification services, is announcing expanded capabilities for its laboratories in Dallas, Boston, and Los Angeles. As part of a recent expansion, Intertek relocated its Texas EMC testing facilities to Plano, which currently operates a new 3-meter semi-anechoic chamber for testing up to 18GHz. In addition to a new anechoic chamber, Plano also utilizes a 35-ton HVAC psychometric testing chamber designed to analyze product safety, reliability and the performance characteristics of air conditioners and heat pumps to required safety standards. Providing manufacturers with a chamber of this size reduces costly freight and travel associated with shipping large commercial HVACR equipment.

Already operating 3-meter and 5-meter semi-anechoic chambers, the company’s Boxborough site recently introduced a new 10-meter chamber, said to be the only independent 10-meter chamber New England. The firm’s new 29,000-square-foot testing site in Lake Forest, Calif., significantly increases its local testing capacity for HVAC and other manufacturers.
