Mexico Considers New Standards for Certain Refrigeration Units
Mexico has issued a proposal to establish new mandatory energy efficiency standards, test procedures, sampling and labelling requirements for condensing and evaporative units for refrigeration. Comments on this proposal may be submitted by 8 December.
The proposal includes (1) condensing units for refrigeration that are manufactured for outdoor or indoor installation, with a cooling capacity of at least 746 W (2,547 BTU/h) up to 40,000 W (136,607 BTU/h) in mid temperature and up to 13,000 W (44,397 BTU/h) in low temperature; and (2) evaporative units for low-profile refrigeration that are designed to operate with a refrigerant and are fed by direct expansion to wet and/or dry conditions, with a nominal cooling capacity from 0.3 to 12.0 kW.
