Achieving energy efficiency and cost saving chiller operations were of prime importance to Arnprior & District Memorial Hospital, and replacement of the existing 150 ton chiller with 3 SMARDT 80 ton modular units, met the new 240 ton requirement of cooling to handle future hospital expansion. Also, SMARDT maintenance and repair costs are 40% lower over the life of the chillers.

The 200,000 sq. ft NFL Films studio complex in Mount Laurel, N.J., houses the world’s largest sports film library, and reliable efficient cooling is an absolute necessity.

Prior reliability and maintenance issues resulted in NFL Films purchasing and installing two new latest generation technology and energy efficient SMARDT chillers. The oil free centrifugal compressor design boosts energy efficiency and reduces maintenance and operating costs, and since installing the SMARDT chillers, a 10-12% monthly reduction in the consumption of electricity has been realized. Said John Rauch, Operations Manager of Marubeni Sustainable Energy, the company that provides building operations services for the NFL Films complex: “With the SMARDT chillers and their Turbocor technology, we believe it’s the best investment we could have made.”
