Check out the following recent projects RJI has completed.
University of Arkansas
University of Arkansas - JOHN W. TYSON BUILDING - The 112,000-square-foot John W. Tyson building was dedicated at a ceremony for the Center of Excellence for Poultry Science on September 10, 1995.
Energy Systems Group developed and is implementing a $3.6 million modernization and facility improvement program for the John W. Tyson Center of Excellence for Poultry Science. This program significantly reduces energy consumption while enhancing the learning and working environment. Some of the benefits include:
- Comprehensive Program that Preserves Existing Budgets
- Upgrading Fume Hoods for Increased Safety and Reducing Energy Use
- Replacing Lab Cooler Compressors Increasing Reliability for Vital Scientific Experiments
- Guaranteed Energy Savings and Decreasing Operational Costs
- Energy and Operational Savings over $4.95 Million
Key Installed Technologies included the retrofit of 57 Fume Hoods with Low Flow Technology. This is a conversion kit manufactured by FLOWSAFE that utilizes the existing hood and integrates sheet metal parts and controls to reduce the original flow of the hood at least 40 %. This is an extremely green design as the existing fume hoods can be reused and the energy consumption is dramatically reduced.
Owner needed to replace old R-12 centrifugal chiller located in basement mechanical room. Access to the mechanical space was limited to a 6 x 6 chase from street level. (6) 50 ton Multistack modules were lowered thru the chase and installed. Each module had – (2) 25 hp Scroll compressors. This solution provided the owner minimal installation costs versus extreme excavation and building modifications to get a traditional Centrifugal into the space.
