Annex 1, Appendix 2. Methods and procedures to measure and control the insulation capacity and efficiency of cooling and heating installations in special materials for transport of perishable foodstuffs.

A. Definitions and general principles.

1.

K value. The overall heat transmission coefficient (K value, in some countries called U coefficient), which represents the capacity of the Material insulation is defined by the following formula:

K = W / S Δ Θ
where W is the heat capacity required in a body with average surface S to maintain an absolute difference Δ Θ between the average temperature inside Θi and the average temperature of the outside Θe with stationary operation when the average temperature outside is constant.

2.
The body's average surface S is the geometric mean of its inner surface Si and its outer surface See

S = √Si See
When the two surfaces, Si and Se be determined, consideration shall be given to the traits of the body's structure and surface, such as rounding, wheel arches, etc., and this is acknowledged under an appropriate heading in the following prescribed test report. Dog will surface covered with corrugated plate is considered to have the acreage plate cover and not the disc widespread area.

3.
For parallellepipedformede bodies is the average interior temperature (Θi) the arithmetic mean of the temperatures measured at a distance 10 cm from the walls in the following 14 points:

A)
The 8 inside corners of the bodywork

B)
The midpoints of the 6 interior surfaces.

Have bodywork not parallellepipedform shall the 14 measuring points can be distributed most satisfactory from the shape of the body.

4.

A)
The 8 outside corners of the bodywork

B)
The midpoints of the 6 external surfaces.

Have bodywork not parallellepipedform shall the 14 measuring points can be distributed most satisfactory from the shape of the body.

5.
The average temperature in the body's walls is the arithmetic mean of the average outside temperature and the mean inside temperature of body:

(Θe + Θi / 2)

6.
Stationary operation. The operation shall be considered as stationary when the following conditions are met:

-
Average temperature on the outside and the average temperature of the inside, measured over a period of at least 12 hours, should not vary more than ± 0.5 ° C.

No matter which of the two methods selected should average temperature in the isolated local throughout the test be kept uniform, and constant to within ± 0.5 ° C and at such a level that the temperature difference between the inside of the material and the venue is not lower than 20 ° C and that the average temperature in the bodywork walls is kept at approximately + 20 ° C.

9.
When the overall heat transmission coefficient (K value) shall be determined by the internal cooling, the dew point in the isolated local kept at + 25 ° C ± 2 ° C.
