Quantification of the climate divide efficiency for air cuartains - concept of measuring standard

Reference number
Coordinator Frico AB - Frico AB, Sävedalen
Funding from Vinnova SEK 900 000
Project duration December 2015 - May 2018
Status Completed

Purpose and goal

The project was initiated to form a basis for a future measurement standard for air curtain shield efficiency. Within the framework of the project, Frico has collaborated with RISE to develop knowledge about alternative measurement methods and general lab methodology. Frico has used this knowledge to take a leading role in the Eurovent of developing a European measurement standard, see annex Eurovent REC 16-1 Air curtain unit - Classification, test, conditions and energy performance calculations.

Expected effects and result

Frico has verified that the theoretical measurement method works in practice and is repeatable, see appendix xxx. The measurement method can be used to compare the shield efficiency of different air curtains. Frico also has an updated lab today which improves the ability to develop state-of-the-art air curtains in the future.

Planned approach and implementation

The project has been synchronized with ongoing dialogue within Eurovent, which means that the work plan was adjusted in terms of content and calendar time. Planned CFD analysis was replaced by practical measurements The result is that the air curtain industry today has a verified measurement standard for air curtain shield efficiency, but this need to be confirmed by another laboratory before spreading message to the market.
