About RED Rochester

Eastman Business Park (EBP), located in Rochester, New York is a 1,200-acre R&D and manufacturing campus with over 16 million square feet of multi-scale manufacturing, distribution, lab and office space. There are currently almost 110 companies onsite.

The Challenge and reason for selecting Smardt

RED evaluated and considered several chiller technologies and manufacturers for this project.

Ultimately the decision was made based upon the total package of capacity and turndown, efficiency, reliability and redundancy.

At the time of selection, Smardt was the only manufacturer capable of constructing a single 2000 Ton oil-free type machine. All others were limited to about 1000 Ton at the time. As such, the specified design was converted from two chillers to a single chiller with five compressors

At RED, the load is quite dynamic, and turndown is very important. Being able to operate this unit over a wide load range provided the flexibility of staging and running the entire system more efficiently, including the old steam chillers. 


Smardt’s energy efficiency was above and beyond other magnetic bearing chillers over the entire operating range. The V-Class oil-free centrifugal chiller can operate at extremely low condenser water temperatures to achieve world-class kW/TR values during wintertime operating conditions. Other manufacturers would have required costly additional features, tube enhancements, controls upgrades, etc. to approach the efficiencies offered by Smardt.
