Description / Abstract:

This standard applies to fans of all types and sizes. It is limited to the determination of airborne sound emission for the specified setups. Vibration is not measured, nor is the sensitivity of airborne sound emission to vibration effects determined.

The size of a fan that can be tested in accordance with this standard is limited only by the practical aspects of the test setups. Dimensional limitations, test subject dimensions, and air performance will control the test room size, power and mounting requirements for the test subject.

The test setup requirements in this standard establish the laboratory conditions necessary for a successful test. Rarely will it be possible to meet these requirements in a field situation. This standard is not intended for field measurements.


This standard establishes a method of determining the sound power levels of a fan. It was originally developed in response to the need for a reliable and accurate method of determining the sound power levels of fan equipment.
