HOUSTON — Custom Air Products & Services Inc. (CAPS), a supplier of commercial and industrial HVAC equipment, announced that it has obtained third-party certifications for its lines of room air conditioners and heat pumps as well as wall-mount air conditioning systems for use in Class I, Division 2, Groups B, C, and D hazardous locations.

The accrediting body, QPS, is a nationally recognized testing laboratory (NRTL) recognized by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and internationally accredited as an independent third-party testing, certification, and field evaluation body. “Seeking certification was a long and arduous process, but one that was good for us in a number of ways,” said Mike Bozich of CAPS Electrical Engineering Department. “Standing up to the rigors of having QPS test and evaluate our products to the relevant standards and receiving comprehensive test and evaluation reports provides us with a real sense of accomplishment and a validation of our processes. Being able to display the QPS certification mark on our products allows us to prove to our customers, and their industries, that we have a continued commitment to providing the best products possible to them, products that meet their strenuous requirements.”

Obtaining these certifications enables CAPS to offer the petrochemical and refining industries a line of industrial air conditioning equipment available for general purpose (unclassified) and Division 2 hazardous locations. Ranging in capacities from 8,000 Btuh to 72,000 Btuh, CAPS can provide solutions for a number of applications requiring air conditioning, heating, ventilation, and pressurization.
