What is the Performance Verification Program for Rotary Compressors?

The Performance Verification Program for Rotary Compressors is designed to verify participants’ claimed ratings in accordance with provisions in the latest addition of ISO 217, Displacement Compressors-Acceptance Tests. Program participation is voluntary and open to members who are manufacturers of rotary compressors from 5-200 HP. The current active members in this program can be found here.

The latest performance data

The verification program tests samples of equipment from participating compressor manufacturers to ensure that machine performance meets the manufacturer’s stated performance ratings. The data sheets are an essential source of information for end-users looking to make unbiased decisions based on only data facts.

Here are the latest program results as of September 2018. Compressor models that failed the verification program have been listed and several manufactures have even been terminated from the program due to test failing.
