With the completion of the new laboratory in 2015, New York Blower has significantly expanded its air and sound testing capabilities. The new, state of the art facility contains six airflow test chambers of various flow and pressure capabilities and two reverberant sound rooms. The facility will be used for research and development, training and hosting customers to experience testing of their fans before field installation. A description of each of the specialized testing features and other services offered is provided in more detail.
