The University awarded a contract for repair work on chiller #4 for the east campus bldg.
This emergency/quick purchase was required due to a situation in which immediate repairs were needed to prevent further loss or damage to University property.
The chiller #4 failed and shut down. With this chiller out of service, the central plant has no redundancy to serve the east campus with cooling. The chiller evaporator was full of water and immediate dehydration was performed. Analysis of the Eddy Current Tube revealed approximately 40 tubes with cracks. The repair work is ongoing.
