Thermodynamic design performed with proprietary software, internally developed and validated, with experimental tests run in FACO’s own laboratory complying with ASHRAE specifications.


Heat-exchanging performances certified by AHRI, within the scope of AHRI Standard 410.

Pressure vessels design pursuant to ASME VIII div.1 or EN 13445-2; other calculation codes and FEA-based design available on request.

In-house capabilities for:
• FEA calculation for shock, seism,vibration and strength analysis.
• CFD fluid dynamics analysis on the heat exchangers and on its boundaries.
• Predictive analysis, factory tests and site tests of vibration and noise levels with measure devices interfaced with analysis software.

Assessment and design according to cogent directives, as applicable: Pressure Equipment (PED, 2014/68/EU), Machinery (2006/42/EC), Low Voltage directive (LVD, 2014/35/EU), Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC, 2014/30/EU). Design and manufacturing compliant to ATEX Directive 2014/34/EU is available.

FACO operates on an ISO 9001:2015 certified Quality Management System.
 
   
 
 
 

A specific software helps to select and balance components that interact and thereby determine the machine’s overall performance. Optimization of thermodynamic performance, power consumption and sound level is obtained with the objective to select the most economical solution in relation to the client’s specifications.

 
 

A CFD thermo-fluid dynamics analysis can be carried out when necessary to identify a solution capable of guaranteeing the desired performance, taking into account the specific characteristics and complexities of the installation environment.

 
   
 

On FACO units, sound intensity measurements are taken to determine the noise power level, which are then elaborated to estimate the open field noise pressure. Historic data collected and theoretic data related to components are used to provide reliable noise levels, even at the offer stage. To get the best results, FACO has provided itself with a class 1 analyzer and sound intensity meter.
