Overview:

Who can participate?
Participation is voluntary and is open to all manufacturers, whether they are a CAGI member or not, Rotary Compressors from 5-200 HP, and stand alone Refrigerated Compressed Air Dryers from 200-1000 SCFM.

How is a Participating Manufacturer recognized for participation?
Participating Manufacturers and the results of the verification tests will be posted on this website. Participating Manufacturers that pass the verification program test procedures will be allowed to utilize the CAGI Program Verification Seal on the models' specification sheets and in its product literature. This is the Participant's public representation that the stated Air Flow Capacities and Efficiencies have been verified by an independent laboratory.

What is being verified?
The Program verifies the information that participating Manufacturers publish on the standard CAGI Data Sheets, which are published on the Participants' websites and in their product literature. The Data Sheets define operational and performance information used during the specification and application decision making process.

How does the Independent Verification process work?
On a regular and random basis the administrator will select and test samples of the equipment to verify that they meet the Manufacturers' certified published performance ratings. Two units will be tested annually per participant. The units will be selected at random by the program administrator from manufacturer or distributor available stock. If a tested unit does not pass, the manufacturer has the option to have a second unit, which was previously chosen by the administrator tested. If this unit also fails the manufacturer must re-rate the unit based on the test results within 30 days or be ejected from the Verification program.

What test methods are being used?

  • Compressors - ISO 1217, Displacement Compressors - Acceptance Tests
  • Air Dryers - ISO 7183, Compressed Air Dryers - Specifications and Testing and Performance Ratings
