MADRID--(BUSINESS WIRE)--On August 30, 2022, CHINT obtained the HVAC Explosion-Proof AK Certification from TÜV Rheinland, a global leading independent third-party certification authority, marking CHINT's new milestone in ESG localization and the company's upgrade of products in response to refrigerant in the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) industry. The certification accredits CHINT’s 12 low-voltage products in 3 series, including the contactor and the motor starter, which can be applied to different application scenarios and future trends in the HVAC industry.
With the increasing awareness of environmental protection around the world, Europe is vigorously switching towards climate-friendly cooling solutions and accelerating the application of environment-friendly refrigerants, more attention has been paid to industries of HVAC, petroleum & petrochemical, coal and power. As a global smart energy solution provider, CHINT promotes the international certification of heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) products, effectively guides the development of power products towards low-carbon goals, and helps global HVAC customers save energy and reduce carbon emissions.
Beibei Zheng, Vice President of CHINT Global, said, "CHINT’s acquisition of TÜV China's first HVAC Explosion-Proof AK Certification indicates that while our products and system solutions certainly meet international explosion-proof requirements, we also have the capability to pursue a low-carbon sustainable development.”
Guorong Sun Vice President | Industrial Services & Cybersecurity Greater China, TÜV Rheinland, said, “We are delighted to see CHINT's continuous promotion of global energy transformation and refrigerant replacement in the HVAC industry.”
The NC1 and NC8 series AC contactors certified by TÜV Rheinland are suitable for turning on and off AC motors. The NS2 series AC motor starter can be used for motor overload protection. In order to test the safety of the related HVAC equipment when refrigerant leaks, CHINT entrusted TÜV Rheinland to conduct the explosion-proof compliance tests which simulate product usage in actual scenarios.
