CTI STD-201Thermal Certification (STD -201)
The STD-201 Thermal Certification Program from the Cooling Technology Institute (CTI) is applicable to the thermal performance of a manufacturer's product line where all of the models have the same basic design and only differ in relative size. If a manufacturer has several basic designs, each basic design must be separately certified and issued a separate certification approval letter and separate CTI Certification Validation Number.

With the purchase of a "certified" model, the Owner/Operator has assurance that the tower will perform as specified. Either that model, or one within its model line, will have been thoroughly tested by McHale Performance for Certification and found to perform as claimed by the Manufacturer.
