Northrop Chilled Water Pump Replacement

Northrop’s Free Cooling pump was recently operating poorly, exhibiting significant noise and higher-than-average bearing failures. This was attributed to a damaged pump frame occurring from improper pipe support, where the pump ended up taking the weight of the upstream piping. Chilled Water Utilities took the opportunity to replace the ailing pump with a larger model to provide more efficient cooling, and at the same time upgraded components to meet our modern design specifications which result in improved efficiency, quieter operation (important at Northrop!), and reduced maintenance.

I hope you all had a relaxing 4th of July holiday and had a chance to spend some time with family and friends. July 1st marks the beginning of our new fiscal year; the fiscal year (FY) is the financial timeframe in which we set and manage our budgets, and our fiscal years run from July 1- June 30. If you thought 2019 was already passing too quickly, let me welcome you to FY 2020.    

Cleaning over 7,000 sinks, toilets and urinals takes skill and commitment from our dedicated co-workers. Each day a proper procedure is performed in the restrooms to clean from least contaminated (sink/vanity area) to more contaminated (toilet/urinal area) to provide a safe facility for students, staff and visitors. Every year our custodial co-workers install 9,000 paper towel rolls and over 23,000 rolls of toilet tissue!
