The report describes the results of an interlaboratory comparison determining the k-coefficient (heat losses) in a container for the transport of refrigerated goods. The main purposes of the project were: - to verify the accuracy of the measurement of the k-coefficient and the influence of various parameters on the result; - to facilitate the mutual acceptance of the test reports of different test stations in various countries; - to study the methodology and instrumentation used by test stations and their influence on the final result; - to compare the results of an air leakage test (at the same pressures) using different instruments, arrangements and test methods, and - to discuss the results and make recommendations on how to improve the general standard of testing.
