Thermodynamics


Heating, Ventilation and Air Conditioning Technology laboratory

This laboratory carries out testing on principal plant components and mechanical/physical system components (radiators, fireplaces, water and gas valves, piping, connectors, collectors, air conditioning plant parts etc.) used to maximise temperature, humidity and ventilation systems for the health, hygiene and comfort of people inside closed environments.

The following appliances and equipment are tested: radiators, fireplaces, water and gas valves, pipes, fittings, manifolds, parts of air conditioning systems, etc..
Main Activities:
Testing on valves and piping:
  • Determination of the characteristic capacity/leak of charge of water valves and determination of KV coefficient
  • Check exercise field of pressure and temperature
  • Tests on valves according to UNI EN 331, UNI EN 13828, UNI EN 12266-1, UNI EN 1074 regulations
  • Tests on piping and fittings according to UNI EN ISO 21003, UNI TS 11344, UNI EN 1254 regulations
  • Solid fuel heating boilers (UNI EN 303-5)
