TAMPA, Fla. - Heat Pipe Technology (HPT), a division of MiTek(R) Industries, announced that it has opened a new laboratory at its Tampa location. This will allow HPT to expand its ability to research, develop, and test new products while expediting the time-to-market for such products.
With 3,800 square feet of new testing and research space, HPT now has the capability to test to the Air-Conditioning, Heating, and Refrigeration Institute (AHRI) Standard 1060. Indeed, HPT’s facilities are comparable to those offered by Intertek (AHRI’s official test agency) for energy recovery ventilator (ERV) testing. Although HPT’s products may still be subject to the third-party AHRI testing and approval process, HPT can now pre-test its products to AHRI standards. This not only compresses the product development cycle-time, it also opens up more time and capability for HPT personnel to create new product innovations.
