    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    1.1This test method covers the airflow measurement calibration techniques for fan pressurization systems used for measuring air leakage rates through building envelopes.

    1.2This test method is applicable to systems used for air leakage measurement as described in Test Method E779.

    1.3This test method involves the installation of the fan pressurization system in a calibration chamber. Use of the fan pressurization system in an actual building may introduce additional errors in the airflow measurement due to operator influence, interference of internal partitions and furnishings, weather effects, and other factors.

    1.4The proper use of this test method requires a knowledge of the principles of airflow and pressure measurement.

    1.5This standard includes two basic procedures, a preferred procedure, based on ASHRAE 51/AMCA 210, and an optional procedure based on a nonstandard airflow measurement technique, commonly used by manufacturers of fan pressurization devices, but which has not been compared with standard airflow measurement techniques.

    1.6The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.

    1.7This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    1.8This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
