Description

Jacob Construction & Design, Inc. performed a Design-Build on a retrofit compressor with zero-loss drains for energy efficiency. During the design phase, JCD devised a way to increase energy savings for the government by tying in Aquatherm piping to the main central air plant. This practical solution eliminated the need for heat-tracing wire on compressors located in exterior areas. The use of thermal piping proved to be the ideal solution when dealing with the vast climate fluctuations that were common in the weapons loading stations and outlying buildings throughout the installation area of Fallon NAS.
