Waterloo’s test lab offers hi-tech solutions

Waterloo chairman, Rick Edmondson, said: “As Waterloo continues to grow and maintain its status as one of the leaders in air distribution we ensure investment goes into the heart of our business and more specifically into our lab testing facilities. Waterloo’s lab has a range of high-tech equipment that is very capable and reliable for the high demand of training and test requests we receive.”

Waterloo Air Products’ hi-tech test lab is offering state-of-the-art facilities for product development and customer training.

The company’s Tech Hub can provide customers with information and solutions: from mock-ups in the test lab to one off designs, practical solutions and training, it enables the company to provide customers with fast and accurate results that help to ensure projects run smoothly.

Recently Atkins, one of the world’s most respected design, engineering and project management consultancies, sent a group of its apprentice engineers to Waterloo’s head office in Maidstone for training which included a practical demonstration in the Airflow Lab.

The fully equipped Airflow Lab incorporates state-of-the-art test equipment, with a floor space measuring 5m x 10m with an adjustable ceiling that ranges from 2.5m to 3m. The lab’s capabilities include heated flooring, heated walls, adjustable ductwork in the ceiling and floor, with a floor void for floor grilles along with a wall partition that can be adjusted to the required room size.

Demonstrations included a few of Waterloo’s most popular products including the CS-Slot diffuser, ALN Grilles, Chilled Beams, LCT and Eyeball Diffuser. Smoke tests were carried out for visual effect so that the patterns of air flow could be seen, and students were shown how airflow meters worked with temperature and velocity.

Matreya Southgate, product and development manager at Waterloo, said: “When we run training days we want attendees to be engaged and carrying out smoke test is a great way of injecting some fun in the training which we hope will be memorable. Waterloo is one of the most knowledgeable companies in the industry when it comes to understanding air distribution, we aim to pass on our knowledge and inspire students attending our training days. Judging by the feedback we receive, our courses are very beneficial.”
