Heat Exchangers Receive New ARI Standard 400 Certification


Bell & Gossett has announced that its popular line of Model GPX gasketed plate-and-frame heat exchangers is among the first in the HVACR industry to receive the Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Institute’s (ARI) new certification for liquid-to-liquid heat exchangers.

The recently initiated ARI Standard 400 certification designates product performance excellence and was developed to provide a common and consistent method of evaluating the thermal performance of liquid-to-liquid heat exchangers. Certification is granted to heat exchangers that, when tested, meet or exceed the manufacturer's published thermal performance rating.

“We are honored to receive this certification as it reinforces Bell & Gossett’s long standing reputation for quality and performance excellence,” said Karl Buscher, Vice-president of Marketing at ITT Industries' Fluid Handling Division. “It provides our customers with added reassurance that they can depend on Bell & Gossett for products with guaranteed performance.”

The ARI certification covers 34 Bell & Gossett GPX models from the Model P4 to the Model P200. The GPX line comes in a wide variety of plate construction materials and connection types.

ARI's Liquid-to-Liquid Heat Exchangers Certification process applies to plate- and/or shell-type liquid-to-liquid heat exchangers which are tested in accordance with ANSI/ARI Standard 400-2001.
