Independent Testing Verifies the Performance of Ingersoll Rand Compressed Air Dryers
Ingersoll Rand's refrigerated dryers have been verified against CAGI (Compressed Air and Gas Institute) data sheets by independent third-party testing.
Davidson, NC (Vocus/PRWEB ) November 5, 2009 -- (NYSE:IR) Ingersoll Rand's refrigerated dryers have been verified against CAGI (Compressed Air and Gas Institute) data sheets by independent third-party testing. Based on this testing, the refrigerated dryers are now certified by CAGI. Ingersoll Rand is one of only three dryer manufacturers, of the many that have participated in this verification program, to receive the CAGI certification. The certification means that Ingersoll Rand dryers perform exactly to the standards the company publishes. Certification is an assurance that an Ingersoll Rand dryer will meet the users intended performance.
The verification of the product was done through CAGI's Performance Verification Program. During the testing, energy consumption, pressure drop and pressure dew point are compared with data provided by Ingersoll Rand on standardized data sheets available from CAGI. The program applies to stand-alone type refrigerated dryers with 200-1,000 Standard Cubic Feet per Minute (SCFM) capacities. The program is available to all manufacturers of refrigerated compressed air dryers, regardless of whether they are a CAGI member of not.
The CAGI Program provides a means for users to assess and compare brands and models before purchasing, and eliminates the need for interpretation of non-standard data. Because Ingersoll Rand units perform in accordance with the information on the data sheets, they are certified to carry the official CAGI Performance Verification Program label. Ingersoll Rand is one of the few dryer manufacturers to receive this certification.
