CORTLAND, N.Y. - Intertek, a leader in product testing, inspection, and certification, has unveiled a new 1,000-square-foot (20-ton) psychrometric test facility at its 240,000-square-foot HVACR Center of Excellence testing center. According to the company, the new 20-ton expanded facility was designed to meet a need in the industry for faster turnaround times and reduced queue times for HVACR product performance and safety testing.
