Students observe the large condenser water supply and return pipes. The supply pipe carries relatively cool water underground, under the street to the S6 chiller/boiler central plant where it is used to absorb heat from the chiller’s condenser unit. Once heated, it flows back to the cooling tower via condenser Water return piping to be cooled again – completing the cycle. Use the Campus as Your Lab! De Anza’s Central Cooling Tower
Central Cooling Tower-Variable Frequency Drives Students inspect a large set of variable frequency drives used to control the speed of all of the large motors in the plant in our ES 70LX Class. VFDs are a tremendous energy saver.
