The following pictures are of the physical equipment in a 50 story, 1.4 million sq. ft. building. The plant consisted of 3900 tons cooling capacity. This work was also completed totally in-house. A different crew this time but they were equally motivated. This retro began when the building was 10 years old. All chillers, pumps and cooling tower were completely rebuilt and new DDC control system installed. Industrial instrumentation was used exclusively, 1000 ohm RTD transmitters with adjustable scales, Barton diff. press. transmitters, all tied back to CSI INET control system. Again as Chief Engineer, not only another incredibly good time but an honor to have worked with the men on this crew.
1150 to Trane CVHB "Bench Grinder". These machines were gone through thoroughly. New controls, instrumentation, performance monitors, etc.
Up close and personal... This plant would flat haul the load when finished.
Two of the three 1150 ton machines ready for work! Note "tucked and rolled Armorflex insulation w/ canvas covering,
Weinman condenser water pump with balanced rotating element, new wear rings, casing rings, mech. seals, and even the copper polished.
Weinman chilled water pump. Same work as condenser pump, tucked and rolled Armorflex and polished copper.
Water treament injection station. All stainless steel containers, pneumatic injector pumps and connected to DDC control system. (This station is on the 39th floor.)
Pony plant on 39th floor. 500 ton CVHA Trane "Sidewinder", pumps, chemical treatment station, and Old Glory.
1400 Kw - 1700 hp Stewart & Stevenson generator before overhaul.
Same generator after overhaul, gaskets, new controls, & a couple of dollars worth of paint.
Generator room on fourth floor. (Note chrome plated floor drain and polished copper.
The work in this plant represents a concerted effort of the men who operated and maintained this building. They are some of the finest men I have ever had work for me. This was not a transformation that was just bought with cash, but the result of hard work, attention to detail and tireless effort. The performance and efficiency matched the asthetics. I am proud of the equipment in these photos, but I wish you could see the guys who did the work.
Thanks again for letting me share.
