Eurovent Certified Performance (ECP) certification programme for Liquid-to-liquid plate heat exchangers
Eurovent Certita Certification is proud to introduce a new Eurovent Certified Performance (ECP) certification programme for Liquid-to-liquid plate heat exchangers. This programme was developed in 2017-2018 with the support of a dedicated committee gathering three major European manufacturers. The development of the programme also involved consultation of European testing laboratories in order to elaborate a specific and adequate test method based on, notably but not limited to, standard EN 1148:1997. The resulting requirements and rules defined for the LPHE programme involve product performance testing but also production sites auditing and selection tool checking as complementary guarantees towards high levels of performance ratings reliability, manufacturing process steadiness and design adequacy. The scope of the programme covers Gasketed plate heat exchangers, brazed plate heat exchangers and fusion-bonded plate heat exchangers used in single-phase heat exchange applications in the Heating Ventilation and Air Conditioning (HVAC) field. The certified performances are the pressure drop (for primary and secondary sides) and the heat exchange capacity of the plate heat exchanger operated with clean water or clean water mixtures (water + ethylene or propylene glycol notably). With this new LPHE certification programme, Eurovent Certita Certification and plate heat exchangers manufacturers expect to raise the standard for more and more transparency and reliability of the products on the market.
