ATLANTA, GA — The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) has revised its standard for rating liquid coolers.

According to Shane Moeykens, chair of the committee that developed the standard, ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 24-2000, “Methods of Testing for Rating Liquid Coolers,” supports ARI Standard 480, which establishes requirements for testing, minimum data requirements for publishing ratings, marketing, nameplate data, and conformance conditions.

The standard is intended for use by companies that produce evaporator heat exchangers and market them as standalone components.

The cost of this standard is $20 and can be ordered through ASHRAE customer service, 800-527-4723 (phone-United States or Canada), or 404-636-8400 (phone-worldwide); 404-321-5478 (fax); orders@ (e-mail); (website); or by mail at 1791 Tullie Circle NE, Atlanta, GA 30329. lN
