The Central Utility Plant (Building 40) has four 1200 ton centrifugal chillers for cooling, that generate chilled water at 42 degrees fahrenheit. The chilled water is delivered to campus facilities thorugh underground supply and return piping. Chilled water cooling coils in each facility use the chilled water to provide cooled air to each facility. Water is returned to Building 40 to be re-chilled.
The installed chilled capacity for the UWF campus could generate enough cooling to air condition over 1600 homes.
