Material Testing Technology has received accreditation for the solar collector testing program at DSET Laboratories – its Arizona test facility – by the Solar Rating and Certification Corp. (SRCC).
Atlas says it has passed an on-site audit to SRCC Standard 100: Test Methods and Minimum Standards for Certifying Solar Collectors. SRCC Standard 100, along with ISO 9806-1, 2 and 3 standards – Test Methods for Solar Collectors – has been added to the current ISO 17025 accreditation scope.
The solar thermal industry has experienced a significant backlog in certification testing due to the lack of SRCC-certified testing laboratories and an increase in solar thermal business globally, Atlas notes. The company decided to invest resources to fill this need by re-entering the solar thermal testing market.
