Utility Equipment: Chillers


Iowa State has five chillers used for cooling the campus buildings. The chillers use steam or electricity to produce cold water which is sent to the campus buildings. Two chillers use 400 lb steam turbines, two use 90 lb steam turbines and one uses an electric motor to drive large compressors. Four of the chillers are located in the main power plant. One of the 90 lb steam turbine chillers is located in the North Chilled Water Plant.
