Bradford White Training Facility Raises the Bar

(Continued)

Heat sources include five dedicated Laars NeoTherm boilers with an input of 1.7 million BTUs.


“Each and every operating mechanical component of the building’s mechanical system serves as a training tool. There’s no substitute for seeing these components in operation and seeing how they interconnect; it’s hands-on training in the best sense,” said Dustin Bowerman, director of technical services, who – along with Mike Gordon, senior VP of engineering – designed much of the system. “

Building layout and design was the result of customer feedback and the goal of creating a comfortable, ultra-efficient learning center – a working laboratory to serve for generations, allowing easy introduction of emerging technology as they see fit.

Products in motion
There are two interwoven mechanical systems in the building, both installed by Quality Air, a Comfort System USA company. First, the actual system to heat and cool the structure, and second, the live-fire lab. Heat sources include five dedicated Laars NeoTherm boilers with an input of 1.7 million BTUs; these are located in the mechanical room. The live fire lab has 10 working hands-on stations, each with a variety of equipment chosen to match course curriculum. The heating capacity of the lab is up to 5 million BTUs.
