Intertek Expands Testing Capabilities at its North American Labs

Chicago, IL Intertek (LSE: ITRK) has announced new developments to its laboratories in Dallas, TX; Boston, MA; and Los Angeles, CA. Dedicated to providing optimum safety and performance testing and bringing products to market faster, Intertek continues investing in state-of-the-art facilities.

As part of a recent expansion, Intertek relocated its Texas EMC testing facilities to Plano, which currently operates a new 3-meter semi-anechoic chamber for testing up to 18GHz. In addition to a new anechoic chamber, Plano also utilizes a 35-ton HVAC psychometric testing chamber designed to analyze product safety, reliability and the performance characteristics of air conditioners and heat pumps to required safety standards. Providing manufacturers with a chamber of this size reduces costly freight and travel associated with shipping large commercial HVAC/R equipment.

Intertek’s Dallas laboratory also conducts hazardous locations testing to examine product safety in potentially explosive settings.
