Compressed Air and Gas Institute Releases New Standard for Testing Turbocompressor Performance

The Compressed Air and Gas Institute announced the release of its latest standard, CAGI BL 5389, Simplified Acceptance Test of Electric Driven, Low Pressure Turbocompressor Air Blower Packages.  The standard provides a simplified, wire-to-air performance test code applicable to packaged, low-pressure turbocompressors handling atmospheric air.

CAGI will submit the new standard for consideration as an annex to the ISO 5389 standard that will be used throughout the world to test turbocompressor performance.

In 2010, CAGI members were approached by The Consortium for Energy Efficiency (CEE) on behalf of 130 energy efficiency program administrators across the United States and Canada, to address the need for increased consistency in the energy performance testing of packaged blowers used in wastewater treatment and industrial applications. In response, a working group within CAGI’s Blower Section was established.

The ISO 5389 standard provides a detailed, complex procedure to test and rate turbocompressor blowers. The standard is applicable to all dynamic blower packages in all industrial and municipal air applications. While the standard is intended for use with all types of turbocompressor blower packages, it will be particularly useful for machines that are manufactured in batches or in continuous production quantities.

The standard will be available as a free download on the CAGI website, www.cagi.org
