Standard 510 Scope
This standard applies to Positive Displacement Ammonia Compressors (Ammonia Compressors) and Compressor Units (Ammonia Compressor Units) for use in commercial and industrial refrigeration applications.

Related Standard 530
Standard 530 Scope
This standard applies to External-drive, Hermetic and Semi-Hermetic Refrigerant Compressors. In the case of External-drive Refrigerant Compressors, the driving mechanism shall be excluded from the sound and vibration measurements. However, for Semi-Hermetic Refrigerant Compressors where the driving mechanism is an integral part of the compressor assembly as defined in Section 3, it shall be included in the measurements.
