Test Procedure

ANSI Document#: TIP 0420-12

Title: Guidelines for measurement of vacuum pump air flow
Abstract: This test procedure is described for cone ported, single stage, liquid ring
vacuum pumps because these are most common in the pulp and paper industry. This
design of pump is typically equipped with two top suction flanges and two side or bottom
discharge flanges. Often the suction flanges are manifolded together as are the discharge
flanges. Other designs of single stage liquid ring vacuum pumps exist, such as flat plate
ported, and the test procedure can be adjusted to fit these style pumps.

      http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/edcams/eande/popups/ceilingfanrule.pdf

                           Mandatory Test Procedures
Ceiling Fans are subject to the Appliance Labeling Rule of the Federal Trade
Commission, 16 CFR Part 305. The FTC statute requires manufacturers to derive the
energy information on ceiling fan labels from DOE tests, which must be based on the
ENERGY STAR Guidance Manual.

The ENERGY STAR program, administered by EPA and DOE, is a voluntary
government labeling program that identifies high efficiency products.

ENERGY STAR requires participating manufacturers to conduct tests and self certify
those product models that meet the ENERGY STAR guidelines.


Section 137 of EPACT 2005 directs the Department of Energy (‘‘DOE’’) to prescribe test
procedures and energy conservation standards for ceiling fans. According to EPACT
2005, the test procedure for ceiling fans must be based on the ‘‘ENERGY STAR Testing
Facility Guidance Manual: Building a Testing Facility and Performing the Solid State
Test Method {Under this method, testing personnel place the fan above a large diameter
tube in a standard temperature and humidity-controlled room. The air delivered by the fan
passes through the tunnel where velocity sensors mounted on a rotating arm measure the
airflow at various points. ENERGY STAR directs manufacturers to measure efficiency at
each of three fan speeds (low, medium, and high). For example, to meet ENERGY STAR
standards, at low speed, fans must have a minimum airflow of 1,250 CFM and an
efficiency of 155 CFM/Watt and, at high speed, fans must have a minimum airflow of
5,000 CFM and an efficiency of 75 CFM/Watt. ENERGY STAR also requires
manufacturers to label the packages of qualifying products with airflow, fan power,
consumption, and airflow efficiency at three operating speeds.}for ENERGY STAR
Qualified Ceiling Fans, Version 1.1’’ (‘‘ENERGY STAR Guidance Manual’’) published
by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). (42 U.S.C. 6293(b)(16)). As per the
Energy Star Requirements, manufacturers must derive airflow and airflow
efficiency measurements using the Solid State Test Method as defined in the
ENERGY STAR Guidance Manual.
            Mandatory Labeling Requirements for Ceiling Fans:

                                         Content

Any covered product that is a ceiling fan shall be labeled clearly and conspicuously on
the principal display panel with the following information in order from top to bottom on
the label:

(i) The words ‘‘ENERGY INFORMATION’’ shall appear at the top of the label with the
words ‘‘at High Speed’’ directly underneath;

(ii) The product’s airflow at high speed expressed in cubic feet per minute and
determined pursuant to § 305.5 of this part;
(http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/edcams/eande/popups/ceilingfanrule.pdf)

(iii) The product’s electricity usage at high speed expressed in watts and determined
pursuant to § 305.5 of this part, including the phrase ‘‘excludes lights’’ as indicated in
Ceiling Fan Label Illustration of Appendix L of this part; (as exhibited below).

(iv) The product’s airflow efficiency rating at high speed expressed in cubic feet per
minute per watt and determined pursuant to § 305.5 of this part;

(v) The following statement shall appear on the label for fans fewer than 49 inches in
diameter: ‘‘Compare: 36’’ to 48’’ ceiling fans have airflow efficiencies ranging from
approximately 71 to 86 cubic feet per minute per watt at high speed.’’;

(vi) The following statement shall appear on the label for fans 49 inches or more in
diameter: ‘‘Compare: 49’’ to 60’’ ceiling fans have airflow efficiencies ranging from
approximately 51 to 176 cubic feet per minute per watt at high speed.’’; and

(vii) The following statements shall appear at the bottom of the label as indicated in
Ceiling Fan Label Illustration of Appendix L of this part: ‘‘Money-Saving Tip: Turn off
fan when leaving room.’’

                                Label Size and Text Font

The label shall be four inches wide and three inches high. The text font shall be Arial or
another equivalent font. The text on the label shall be black with a white background. The
label’s text size and content, and the order of the required disclosures shall be consistent
with Ceiling Fan Label Illustration of Appendix L of this part.

                                      Placement

The ceiling fan label shall be printed on the principal display panel of the product’s
packaging.
                                 Additional Information

No marks or information other than that specified in this part shall appear on this label,
except a model name, number, or similar identifying information.




                          {Special Requirements for California

In addition to the ENERGY STAR specifications and test method, the State of California
has requirements for ceiling fans. Under the California regulations, each ceiling fan
package must display, in characters no less than 1/4 inch high, the unit’s airflow (in
CFM) and airflow efficiency (in CFM/ Watt) at low, medium, and high speeds. The
requirements only apply to fans with diameters of 50 inches or greater. (Cal. Code Regs.
tit. 20, § 1607(d)(7)). California regulations do not specify the necessary test
procedures.}
                             Reporting Requirements
Consistent with EPCA (42 U.S.C. 6296), the NPRM contained certain reporting
requirements for ceiling fans consistent with those applicable to other products covered
by the Rule. For example, the statute requires manufacturers to submit annual reports to
the FTC listing energy data for each model under current production (42 U.S.C.
6296(b)(4)).

Consistent with the proposed rule, the Final Rule will require manufacturers to submit:

    Information on the energy efficiency of ceiling fans, the model numbers for each
     basic model, the total energy consumed, the number of tests performed, and the
     capacity (i.e., cubic feet per minute).
    The Rule also requires the submission of an annual report for all models under
     production on March 1st of each year (beginning in 2009).
    In addition, pursuant to section 305.8(c) of the Rule, manufacturers must submit
     data for new models prior to their distribution.
    The Final Rule contains an additional sentence in 305.8(a)(1) clarifying that
     manufacturers must report the diameter of models in inches and efficiency ratings,
     electricity consumption, and capacity at high speed.

                      Energy Star Requirements for Fans
                                       Ceiling Fans

                                   Key Product Criteria

                              Equipment Specification
        Specification defines residential ceiling fan airflow efficiency on a
         performance basis: CFM* of airflow per watt of power consumed by the
         motor and controls. Efficiency is measured on each of 3 speeds.
        At low speed, fans must have a minimum airflow of 1,250 CFM* and an
         efficiency of 155 CFM/Watt
        Qualifying ceiling fan models must come with a minimum 30-year motor
         warranty; one-year component(s) warranty; and 2-year light kits warranty.
        At high speed, fans must have a minimum airflow of 5,000 CFM* and an
         efficiency of 75 CFM/Watt
        Integral or attachable lighting, including separately sold ceiling fan light kits,
         must meet certain requirements of the RLF specification.


                     Testing Requirements for Energy Star Logo:
All manufacturers are required to perform tests on residential ceiling fan models by using
the Solid State Test Method (A test method that specifies the apparatus and testing
protocol for measuring a residential ceiling fan’s airflow and power consumption. The
method utilizes a hot-wire anemometer and requires a temperature controlled room and
computer for recording test data. ) described in the Program Requirements for Residential
Ceiling Fans.
Fan models identical in every respect but housing and blade finish may be represented by
a single representative model for testing purposes. However, separate test data is required
for all models that differ in motor type or size, rotational speed, control type, or blade
weight, number, size, or pitch.
