FAN COILS TEST CHAMBER

The Fan Coil Test Chamber tests all of Price's Fan Coil products, providing precise and real-time test results.

The chamber uses dedicated humidity and temperature control to condition the incoming air. Water temperature and flow control are achieved by using a standalone hot/chilled water system that incorporates heat exchangers, an inline heater, and water pumps. These features make it possible to test products in a precise, simulated environment.
