Salt Lake E Center for 2002 Olympics
When we did Salt Lake City E Center for the 2002 Olympics – no ammonia refrigerant was allowed to escape to the outside. This was the first project done like this. All heat from condensing went through an internal heat exchanger, cooled by glycol outdoor cooling towers as in photo. All relief valves were piped back into the large water filled tank with ammonia sensors in the tank. There was 600 tons of refrigeration at 10’F capable of putting ice in within 12 hours.
