With the national and global thrust on energy efficiency, Danfoss India has set up a one of its kind lab, the Psychrometric (PSR) lab, which tests products for energy efficiency standards and has the potential to redefine manufacturing and designing of energy efficient products in India, thereby meeting global standards of quality and reliability.
The lab was inaugurated at the hands of Dr. Ajay Mathur, Director General, Bureau of Energy Efficiency at Danfoss India’s Platinum LEED rated Oragadam campus near Chennai on the occasion of Danfoss Tech Day. This unique lab is seen as a step towards addressing India’s energy security through energy efficiency, by helping stakeholders in performance testing of their air conditioning components that contribute to maximum load on power grids, a statement by Danfoss India said.
“Energy efficiency is at the core of our energy system development and one must understand that it has a direct impact on our GDP. In fact, every organization across industry should adopt energy efficient technologies to lower their dependence on our already strapped resources. Energy saved today will ultimately serve as the alternate fuel to power both today’s unserved homes and tomorrow’s needs. Industries are a key pivot of our GDP and Danfoss, by investing in the psychrometric lab, has set the direction towards embracing energy efficient technologies to achieve their sustainability goals. This initiative will further support the Air-conditioning and Refrigeration Industry in developing new innovative energy efficient products,” Dr. Ajay Mathur was quoted saying in a release.
With a customer-centric approach to designing customized applications, the psychrometric lab has been built to provide testing of air conditioners, chillers and other refrigeration equipment for relevant International standards such as IS, ISO 5051, AHRI and AHRI 550/590 among others. This apart, customers will have the facility to test for the functionality of their applications with Danfoss products, and further customize and improvise solutions to suit their needs, thereby enabling to serve the end customer better. By investing in this lab, Danfoss has indicated to the country and the government that the industry fully supports its initiatives on energy efficiency and enabling positive climate change.
