    • New HVAC Chiller Installed on SRLF

    Bigger, Better Chillers!

    Mar 15, 2017

    To kick off the new year at SRLF, UCLA facilities and ACCO embarked on a project (lasting a little more than a month) to replace the original chillers. The two machines ran continuously at the SRLF for 30 years to maintain the stacks at a crisp temperature between 60 and 70 degrees Fahrenheit. Beginning in January, UCLA facilities and the air conditioning company ACCO tackled the removal of the two 139 ton chillers. Transportation, assembly, and installation of the two new chillers followed shortly after, with the project concluding late February. The replacement chillers each register at 160 tons of cooling output, they are expected to cool the building more efficiently, keep the SRLF stacks closer to 60 degrees, and last longer than the chillers of old.
