First venture into the Saudi market
CEIS has been selected by a product certification company in the Middle East to provide guidance regarding the purchase and implementation of a calorimeter that measures energy performance of heat pump appliances in compliance with a national programme demanding minimum performance levels for these devices.
CEIS has provided this type of service before, but it is the first time that our assistance has been requested at such an early stage of the project, where it is still possible to advise amendments to the calorimeter project in order to ensure compliance with the requirements of the test standards, on the one hand, and, on the other, improve the productivity of the future testing laboratory.
CEIS has been entrusted with the following tasks:
- Project review and negotiation with the calorimeter manufacturer to improve said appliance.
- On-site verification of the correct operation in building and adjusting the calorimeter.
- Design, operation and result interpretation to be able to compare two samples that are representative of air-conditioning and heat pump appliances.
- Training of the personnel at the new laboratory regarding test methods, requirements of test standards, procedures, calculation of uncertainty and practice with real tests.
