This is often due to differences in the actual system resistance compared to what was predicted by the original design calculations as well as difficulties of adjusting system resistance and maintaining system stability with a process operating on line.

With possibly the exception of AMCA and BS, published test standards and codes generally do not provide methods for evaluating whether the performance guaranteed by the fan vendor has been verified by a performance test. Two of the chambers can accommodate airflow rates up to 65, cubic feet per minute and static pressures up to 10 inches of water while the third high pressure chamber can handle airflow rates up to 10, cubic feet per minute and static pressures up to 80 inches of water.

This results in accurate and repeatable testing and generally requires less space than an AMCA duct test.
