The Compressed Air and Gas Institute announced the release of its latest standard, CAGI BL 5389, Simplified Acceptance Test of Electric Driven, Low Pressure Turbocompressor Air Blower Packages. The standard provides a simplified, wire-to-air performance test code applicable to packaged, low-pressure turbocompressors handling atmospheric air. The ISO 5389 standard provides a detailed, complex procedure to test and rate turbocompressor blowers. It is an easily-integrated, cost-effective, yet highly accurate approach to testing and is applicable to all dynamic blower packages in all industrial and municipal air applications. While the standard is intended for use with all types of turbocompressor blower packages, it will be particularly useful for machines that are manufactured in batches or in continuous production quantities.
