ARLINGTON, Va. — The Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) has launched a new online directory of AHRI Certified® Forced Circulation Air-Cooling and Air-Heating Coils (ACHC). The AHRI Certification Program tests this equipment to AHRI Standard 410-2001 with Addendum 3, Forced-Circulation Air-Heating and Air-Cooling Coils (formerly ARI 410). According to the organization, the new tool is easier to use than its predecessor, providing specifiers, engineers, and contractors with a better way to verify performance and certification of these products.

“This new tool is a result of a two-year effort on the part of the ACHC Engineering and Compliance Committees, and AHRI staff,” said Stephen Yurek, AHRI president and CEO. “We are confident it will be well received by those who need quick and accurate access to this information.”

The new ACHC directory includes software tracking and a unique model designation for forced-circulation air-cooling coils under non-frosting conditions and forced-circulation air-cooling and air-heating coils intended for field installation and use in central station air-handling units. Certification ratings verified by test are: average total capacity; air pressure drop; and water (or glycol) pressure drop.
