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.

Latest FM News

The University is closed on Monday, May 27 in honor of Memorial Day, so I am issuing an early edition of Bill’s Bi-Weekly dedicated to the veterans within FM and beyond.

As many of you know, Jerome Malmquist, FM’s Energy Management Director, has announced his retirement.  His last day will be June 7th. 

Graduation season is upon us. For FM, that means sprucing up campus for the thousands of students and their guests who will attend a graduation in May. Thank you for the hard work that you have, and continue, to put in.

Spring officially began on March 20th, but being that we are in Minnesota, we are welcoming it to campus just a little later.

Top notch group!
