Central Plant

The old central plant provided steam, chilled water, compressed air, and domestic hot water to the entire facility. The main heating plant, consisting of three 24,000 lbm/h (10,900 kg/h) boilers, provided steam to the HVAC heating and humidifying equipment, domestic water heaters, and office radiation convectors at 35 psig (3.4 bar). Chilled water was generated to serve HVAC equipment in the facility by three 1,000 ton (3,516 kWr) electric chillers, estimated to operate at 0.775 kW/ton (0.227 kW_/kWr). Prior to the project, two out of three chillers were out of operation, forcing the lab to ration cooling on hot days.
