Public Safety/Heating-Cooling Plant
Located off of East Denny Circle, the heating-cooling plant is an important part of University operations. The building holds Public Safety, in addition to the campus' heating and cooling operations. In a typical year, the central heating-cooling plant generates between 219,000,000 to 341,640,000 pounds of steam for its customers. The steam is used for autoclaves (sterilizers), humidifiers, domestic hot water, air conditioning, and heating services. The plant operates four chillers and cooling towers: one 900-ton steam absorption chiller, one 1200-ton centrifugal chiller, and two 600-ton centrifugal chillers.
