Excellence in Blower Testing: Inovair Participates in the BVBP Webinar on ASME PTC 13 Testing

Black & Veatch, Jacobs Engineering review PTC 13 testing at Inovair

Early in 2024, Inovair was invited to participate in a Blower & Vacuum Best Practices webinar that focused on ASME PTC 13 testing. This interactive webinar, featured keynote speakers Julie Gass, Lead Mechanical Process Engineer at Black & Veatch, and Hiran de Mel, Senior Project Manager and Principal Technologist at Jacobs Engineering. They discussed the practical application of conducting ASME PTC 13 testing at a manufacturer's blower test facility. This testing at the Inovair PTC 13 test cell involved two separate projects, with the blowers shipped to the customers after final acceptance testing.

Why ASME PTC-13 Matters

ASME PTC-13 is the latest industry standard, specifically designed for the comprehensive evaluation of "wire to air" performance. Its primary goal is to determine total electrical operating power, providing a method to validate manufactures claims on efficiency and power consumption.

Embracing Technological Advancements

The introduction of ASME PTC-13 marks a significant shift from the previous ASME PTC-10 test standard. This change not only reflects an evolution in testing methodologies but also underscores the industry's commitment to staying at the forefront of technological advancements.

Advantages of ASME PTC-13

ASME PTC-13 brings with it a key advantage – the ability to substantiate performance claims made by manufacturers. By eliminating the need for estimating or extrapolating efficiency claims, this standard sets a new benchmark for accuracy and transparency in blower performance testing.
