The recommendations and examples in this publication may be applied to all types of centrifugal, axial, and mixed flow fans in ducted or nonducted installations used for heating, ventilating, air conditioning, mechanical draft, industrial process, exhaust, conveying, drying, air cleaning, dust collection, etc. Although the word air is used when reference is made in the general sense to the medium being handled by the fan, gases other than air are included in the scope of this publication.
Measurement of sound, vibration, and stress levels are not within the scope of this publication.
AMCA 202-17 covers both new and existing fan installations. It covers aerodynamic performance as well as noise, vibration and mechanical issues.
