Designed to be the best - tested to prove it
Tests under customers' operating conditions
Accuracy and precision
The new Trane European Research and Development Laboratory in Epinal, France, is resourced to validate the performance of the entire Trane portfolio, including large capacity chillers, air-to-water heat pumps and multi-pipe units. Temperature extremes from -25°C to +55°C can be simulated, regardless of outdoor ambient conditions.
The Trane testing facility in Epinal Operations consists of a 5000m3 climate chamber with advanced ambient temperature and humidity control. This enables us to simulate a wide range of operating modes to ensure we can validate the performances of the entire Trane portfolio, including large capacity chillers, air-to-water heat pumps and multi-pipe units.
The Trane testing facility has been designed as a validation center for all new product development, capable of simulating the widest range of operating conditions encountered by HVAC equipment.
Industry standard compliance
Before any equipment leaves the factory, its performance is validated under the exact conditions at which it should operate once installed. Trane customers are invited to observe their newly-acquired equipment under test for their specific application and ambient conditions.
All procedures, measurements and conditions at the Trane European Research and Development facility are fully compliant with industry standards, providing our customers with reliable and certified performance.
Our testing facility also includes the optional Eurovent certification for air-cooled chillers above 600 kW.
