The chillers are dual compressor centrifugal chillers with a closed loop condenser cooling water circuit. The chillers, being radiator cooled, will save more than 2,100 gallons of water per minute of chiller operation in addition to saving energy that would be required to treat that water.

The chillers use HydroFluoroCarbon (HFC)-134A refrigerant which does not contribute to ozone depletion. Collectively, the chillers are capable of cooling capacity of 58,000 tons of refrigeration, which is equivalent to the cooling required for about 20,000 single-family homes.

“This is an important opportunity to support the university’s mission of sustainable development by installing solutions like these energy efficient YORK chillers,” said Magdy Mekky, vice president and managing director, Middle East for Johnson Controls. “We are proud to be working with the university and are impressed with their commitment to sustainable energy.”
