Centralized chiller plants circulate water through a network of underground conduits to provide cooling to institutional, commercial, and industrial complexes. We construct the piping, manholes, and vaults that help the chilled water reach its destination. We have the experience and personnel to deliver turn-key chilled water piping solutions.
Chilled Water Piping
Some typical components include:
- mainline supply and return piping
- inline valves and fittings
- small diameter branch supply lines to buildings
- concrete vaults for isolation valves or air release valves
- building riser pipes for inside connections
Much like steam, if the chilled water piping requires welding we leave that to our mechanical subcontractor partners. For ductile iron pipe systems, we perform the installation ourselves as well as all required excavation and backfill. Newly install chilled water piping also requires pressure testing to ensure no leaks exist.
South Chiller Plant (Site Piping)
UNCG, Greensboro, NC
This scope of work involved connecting to existing 24" supply/return chilled water piping and installing 230 LF of new 30" piping to the proposed chiller plant building. Pressure testing and jetting/flushing of the new piping was also completed.
