AHRI 560: Absorption Water Chilling and Water Heating Packages

Standard Scope

This standard establishes a single set of testing and rating requirements for determining capacities, water pressure drops, integrated part load values (IPLVs), and application part load values (APLVs) for absorption water-chilling and water-heating packages so that product equipment performance ratings can be compared. This standard applies to single-effect steam and hot fluid operated water chilling units, double-effect steam and hot fluid-operated water chilling units, and double-effect direct-fired (natural gas, oil, LP gas) water chilling/heating units. Also included are multiple-effect and multi-loop cycle absorption water chilling/heating units.
