AMCA: Air Movement and Control Association International, Inc.

AMCA International, the Air Movement and Control Association, is a nonprofit organization that develops and publishes standards for the heating, ventilating and air conditioning industry. Headquartered near Chicago, United States, AMCA represents over 300 members worldwide, roughly half outside the United States. In addition to developing AMCA standards, AMCA oversees an international Certified Ratings Program with over forty testing facilities to ensure compliance with AMCA standards. AMCA also serves as the administrator for the U.S. TAG (United States Technical Advisory Group) to ISO/TC 117 (International Organization for Standardization/Technical Committee). Standards from AMCA are available both individually, directly through the ANSI webstore, and as part of a Standards Subscription. If you or your organization are interested in easy, managed, online access to standards that can be shared, a Standards Subscription may be what you need - please contact us at: StandardsSubscriptions@ansi.org or 1-212-642-4980 or Request Proposal Price.

Below are AMCA's best-selling standards. To find additional standards, please use the search bar above.

ANSI/AMCA 210-16

Laboratory Methods of Testing Fans for Certified Aerodynamic Performance Rating

This standard establishes uniform test methods for a laboratory test of a fan or other air moving device to determine its aerodynamic performance in terms of airflow rate, pressure developed, power consumption, air density, speed of rotation, and efficiency for rating or guarantee purposes. This standard applies to a fan or other air moving device when air is used as the test gas with the following exceptions: (a) air circulating fans (ceiling fans, desk fans); (b) positive pressure ventilators; (c) compressors with inter-stage cooling; (d) positive displacement machines; (e) test procedures to be used for design, production, or field testing.


ANSI/AMCA 300-14

Reverberant Room Method for Sound Testing of Fans

This standard applies to fans of all types and sizes. This standard 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.


AMCA 201-02 (R2011)

Fans and Systems

Fans and Systems is aimed primarily at the designer of the air moving system and discusses the effect on inlet and outlet connections of the fan's performance. System Effect Factors, which must be included in the basic design calculations, are listed for various configurations.


AMCA 410

Recommended Safety Practices for Users and Installers of Industrial and Commercial Fans

This publication provides best safety practices for installation, operation, and servicing of fans. Spanish language version.


ANSI/AMCA 204-20

Balance Quality and Vibration Levels for Fans

This standard covers fans with rigid rotors generally found in commercial heating, ventilating and air conditioning; industrial process applications; mine/tunnel ventilation applications; and power generation applications. Some applications are excluded. This standard is intended to cover only the fan’s balance or vibration and does not consider the effect of fan vibration on personnel, equipment or processes. 


ANSI/AMCA 230-15

Laboratory Methods of Testing Air Circulating Fans for Rating and Certification

The purpose of this standard is to establish uniform methods for laboratory testing of air circulating fans to determine performance (forward or reverse flow) in terms of airflow rate for rating, certification or guarantee purposes.


ANSI/AMCA 301-14

Methods for Calculating Fan Sound Ratings from Laboratory Test Data

This document establishes standard methods for calculating fan sound ratings from laboratory test data.  This standard applies to any fan, if a test standard exists to measure its fan sound power levels. 


AMCA 501-17

Louver Application Manual and Design Guide

The intent of this publication is to provide information and important points to be considered when designing or specifying installations requiring louvers. The purpose of this manual is not to provide detailed specifications; rather, it serves as a guide toward understanding the various types of louvers available and includes topics to be considered to ensure their proper use.
