With the growing demand for energy, solar energy is fast becoming one of the most viable energy sources available. In order for Photovoltaic product manufacturers to quickly enter the global market, they must obtain certification from a third-party certification authority, proving their products' performance and safety characteristics.
As a leading global photovoltaics testing company, Alfa Chemistry offers a wide array of capabilities and testing services for photovoltaics. From photovoltaic (PV) modules to custom testing, Alfa Chemistry provides incredible service and credible results. Alfa Chemistry is your one-stop laboratory for performing all your photovoltaics analysis.
Photovoltaic modules: crystalline silicon photovoltaic modules, planar photovoltaic modules, photovoltaic modules for the ground, photovoltaic modules, crystalline silicon photovoltaic modules
Alfa Chemistry's analysis services for photovoltaics include:
We offer PV laboratory qualification according to ISO/IEC 17025, which comprises verification of scope and accreditations, testing structure and laboratory layout, operations and maintenance requirements.
Product Testing and Certification
We test crystalline modules in accordance with IEC EN 61215 (c-Si, performance) and amorphous crystalline modules in accordance with IEC EN 61646 (thin-film, performance). The safety-related requirements for both cell technologies are tested in accordance with IEC EN 61730-1/2 (c-Si and thin-film, safety).
In addition, we also offer PV module durability testing, thresher test protocol and additional environmental stress tests such as salt mist corrosion testing, ammonia corrosion testing, dust and sand testing, potential induced degradation (PID) testing, dynamic mechanical load testing, fire testing, flammability testing, highly accelerated stress testing (HAST) and outdoor performance comparison measurements.
Performance and Safety-related Environmental Testing
Alfa Chemistry evaluates the performance of your PV modules to ULC/ORD-C1703, UL 1703 and IEC 61730 safety standards as well as IEC 61215 and IEC 61646 performance standards.
Product Quality Monitoring and Inspections
Our experts conduct factory audits that include initial and follow-up surveillance for manufacturing facilities. We offer supplier evaluation, annual routine inspections comprising the predefined routine tests, special inspections and on-site assessments, preshipment inspection (PSI) and during-production audits (DuPro), as well as bankability audits.
