ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. - The Air Movement and Control Association (AMCA) International Inc. released information regarding multiple, recent actions. The association approved Section 16 of AMCA 511-07, adding a Certified Ratings Program (CRP) for Spiral Ducting. This new program will be utilized in the testing of air leakage ratings.

It has also reaffirmed AMCA Publication 203-90, Field Performance Measurement of Fan Systems. Recommendations in this publication may be applied to all types of centrifugal, axial, and mixed flow fans in ducted or non-ducted installations used for HVAC, mechanical draft, industrial process, duct collection, etc.

AMCA Standard 540-07 was adopted by the membership of AMCA. This standard establishes a uniform method for laboratory testing of louvers that are impact tested with the large missile described in ASTM E 1996-04 and E 1886-05. The scope of this standard is for impact testing of louvers used on the outside of buildings.
