Johns Hopkins Adds Duplex Chillers to 25,000-ton Central Plant
The installation of duplex chillers has helped increase cooling capacity and maximizes the efficiency of the existing plant at the Johns Hopkins Medical Campus on the east side of downtown Baltimore. The campus has a year-round requirement for chilled water. The heating and cooling requirements for the campus were provided by a central plant located at the corner of Wolfe and Madison Streets, on the east side of the campus. RMF Engineering of Baltimore conducted a study that included an evaluation of chiller energy consumption, pumping energy costs and system maintenance costs.
