Atlas Receives Solar Testing Accreditation

Atlas Material Testing Technology has received accreditation for the solar collector testing program at its Arizona test facility.

Atlas Material Testing Technology has received accreditation for the solar collector testing program at its Arizona test facility, DSET Laboratories by the Solar Rating and Certification Corporation (SRCC). The company successfully passed an onsite 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 a global increase in solar thermal business. Atlas decided to invest resources to fill this need, re-entering the solar thermal testing market where it once played a major role during the last global solar initiative.
