The purpose-built SuperTest facility in Queensland accurately and scientifically validates the performance and efficiency of mobile and stationary HVAC/R systems and components, simulated in real-world conditions to help you:
Engaging SuperTest to assess equipment designs and operational processes enables your team to certify, make refinements and improve the overall design or processes before you commit to large investments, with the potential to make substantial up-front savings and minimise ongoing costs.
This is the question that consumes us.
See how SuperTest is defining what good refrigeration looks like so that we can help our customers reduce food waste, conserve energy, and be kinder to the environment.
SuperTest is a purpose-built testing and validation centre on the Gold Coast. We use deep knowledge and smart technology to help our customers design efficient equipment and vehicles, and then see how they perform under real-world conditions.
Prototype, test, measure and certify just about anything in our five independent test chambers, the largest of which fits a full-sized trailer. Access thousands of data points, covering everything from energy efficiency to food packaging simulations.
Then, couple this highly accurate data with our consulting services to design better products for your customers, reduce food waste, increase energy efficiency or improve your transport processes.
Need the data so you can get the tick of approval? SuperTest can help. Our controlled environment is the perfect solution to test your HVAC&R systems. Our 3 large test chambers can range from +-0°C to +55°C with 40 to 80% relative humidity in a steady state.
Plus, we can provide check testing to help you comply with the GEMS Act, offering manufacturers of appliances and consumer products a simple and thorough validation process.
Whether it’s a refrigerated semi-trailer, an evaporator, a clothes dryer or even a wedge of cheese – we can provide accurate test data backed up by reliable advice so that you can make informed design, storage, and transport decisions.
Our Gold Coast facility comprises several different test chambers open to anyone who needs to test, certify, validate or prototype a product. We follow strict testing procedures so you can be assured that your results meet the highest level of integrity and are conducted in accordance with relevant standards.
New Test Chamber 6:
Whilst our heritage stems from mobile HVAC&R, we have grown in response to market requirements and now specialise in both mobile and stationary HVAC&R, as well as power consumption and efficiency.
Our newest test chamber offers a unique low-velocity, high-volume parallel airflow with control tolerances or +-1degC of setpoint and 3%RH between 40% to 80%. This test chamber is uniquely designed for testing refrigerated display and storage cabinets (RDC/RSC).
When you engage SuperTest to test or validate your equipment, we follow a standardised planning and testing protocol that provides a structured formula for meeting test objectives and deadlines. Every project is different and we can customise our approach to your needs, however our general process follows 8 distinct phases:
Our testing facility has been operating for many years meaning we have a wide range of testing and calibration equipment on hand, along with extensive networks of internal and external experts should we require something unique for your testing procedure. SuperTest is also the primary Unicla OEM compressor R&D facility.
SuperTest is a NATA Approved as a Test Laboratory Under ISO/IEC 17025, ensuring competence and validity.
With our experience, resources and knowledge, we aim to provide comprehensive testing, practical advice, and responsive customer service to ensure you are always kept informed throughout the project.
We don’t just provide the data – we help you interpret it too, based on our deep understanding of the HVAC&R landscape.
If you have a complicated problem our team can help you untangle it, using decades of manufacturing and engineering knowledge.
We’re obsessed with accuracy and work diligently to get to the heart of the issue, so we can begin solving it together to help you create better, more efficient and more reliable products.
