“After careful consideration, our team of engineers ultimately decided on recommending two new innovative technologies for the Comcast Towers: Magnetic Bearing Chillers and Chilled Beams.” says Joseph Callahan, CEO of TriState HVAC Equipment.

TriState HVAC Equipment, LLP, an innovative, technology centered mechanical systems integration company was selected by Bala Consulting Engineers and LF Driscoll to assist in the design guidance and ultimately furnish an integrated building cooling system for the new Comcast Towers HVAC system.

As a result, the Comcast Towers system includes a 6,500 ton chiller plant serving thousands of chilled beams, with air delivered through 30 applied air handling units. The system also includes 4 massive roof mounted cooling towers to reject the building heat gain.

“After careful consideration, our team of engineers ultimately decided on recommending two new innovative technologies for the Comcast Towers: Magnetic Bearing Chillers and Chilled Beams.” says Joseph Callahan, CEO of TriState HVAC Equipment.

The chilled beam system provides massive energy savings, while also offering the quietest, most comfortable occupant experience. Specifically, energy savings for chilled beam systems is typically a twenty percent reduction from conventional “VAV” systems. Magnetic bearing chillers are frictionless, oil-free and use magnetic levitation technology. This equipment is forty percent more efficient than traditional centrifugal chillers.

The end result is pretty impressive. At over 6,000 tons of cooling capacity, the plant at Comcast will be one of the largest magnetic bearing chiller plants in the world and is estimated to save Comcast over $1.5 million in operating costs over the life of the machines.
