The University of Rochester is one of the country’s top-tier research universities. The campuses are home to 200 academic majors, more than 2,000 faculty and instructional staff, and some 10,000 students which yields high requirements for the capacity and safety of the campuses’ district heating system.
The University looked to replace some of the older piping lines to ensure a more efficient heating solution. The existing steam based heating pipe system was prone to maintenance issues causing high yearly costs. Conversion to a low temperature hot water LTHW system allowed better control and safe operation of the system while reducing both maintenance cost and carbon footprint. In addition chilled water loop for cooling requirements was installed to serve some of the common areas used by the faculty and the students.
isoplus broad product portfolio provided a complete technical solution for the project. The delivery of about 2 km series 1 pipes of different dimensions included both technical support and training on site.
