A new chiller plant was installed in the existing Education Building at the 500-acre Union Grove Campus. The plant serves eight buildings through nearly two miles of direct buried piping.
The plant consists of two chillers, equivalent cooling tower capacity, and site piping to eight campus buildings.
The plant was designed for an ultimate capacity of 1,650 tons. The initial installation included two 450-ton centrifugal chillers, primary and secondary chilled water pumps, condenser water pumps, and counterflow cooling towers.
Electrical work included 4,160-volt feeders from the power plant to a 480-volt transformer to serve the mechanical equipment.
