HOUSTON — M-TriGen Inc., a manufacturer of micro-combined cooling, heating, and power generation (MCCHP) equipment, has announced the launch of three new models of its trigeneration products following authorization by Intertek to mark them for ETL standards. The new PowerAire models utilize R-410A refrigerant and offer a gas heat pump option.
The micro-combined cooling, heating, and power systems are designed for residential, commercial, light industrial, military, and government applications. According to M-TriGen founder and CEO Donald Williams, “These new features go a long way to round out a full set of product options. The R-410A refrigerant is prevalent in most homes in the U.S. It also allows our distributors to avoid working with multiple refrigerants. And gas heat pumps add great efficiency since they use zero to 10 percent of the electricity of comparable electric heat pumps. This enables our customer to save significantly on their electric bills and to reduce peak load power requirements.”
Intertek’s authorization for the ETL mark is the second approval received by M-TriGen in less than two years and extends safety standards to a total of six models of its trigeneration systems.
To receive an ETL label, products are tested against recognized safety standards, while manufacturing facilities and test processes are also reviewed. Once ETL labeling is achieved, a company's products are regularly tested and its facilities and processes audited to ensure continued compliance with safety standards.
Overall, the company’s PowerAire models have achieved ETL labeling approval and conform to UL Standards 1995 and 2200, ANSI Standard Z21.40.2 R(2002), and are certified to CSA Standards C22.2 Nos. 100 and 236 and CGA Standards 2.17 and 2.92 R(2002).
