A WORK IN PROGRESS:

MIAMI'S PERFORMING ARTS CENTER

Located on Biscayne Boulevard between NE 13th and 14th streets, the Miami Performing Arts Center will consist of three performance facilities, totaling 570,000 square feet, which will be linked by a pedestrian bridge spanning the Boulevard.

The Performing Arts Center is expected to house over 300 live performances a year, as well as cultural programs, social events, and business meetings. In an area that typically shuts down at sunset, this will be a big change, putting a lot of people in the streets.

The new district has the potential to become one of the most heavily built neighborhoods in South Florida. Nearby are several residential tower condominium projects, including the 60-story Marquis, the 56-story Opera Tower, the 50-story Ten Museum Park, and the 50-story Paramount Bay.

ANNOUNCING HVACíS COOLING TOWERS NOW AT THE

     WASTE MANAGEMENT SITE IN POMPANO BEACH, FLORIDA

The project we are currently viewing is located at one of Waste Managementís many electric power CO-GEN plants.  This particular plant is located in Pompano Beach, Florida and was designed as a methane gas recovery fired, steam turbine electric generating system, providing some 5 megawatts of power to the grid.  Our cooling tower is an integral part of that systemís steam condenser water, cooling cycle.  Circulating 4,750 GPM of 100deg. F. entering water, leaving at 85deg. F. utilizing a type ďCF 1900 fill, nominally this would be considered around 3,000 tons of refrigeration cooling heat rejection.  

Due to the nature of the process environment, several very interesting design conditions led the design engineers in the direction of fiberglass construction.  As you may know, fiberglass is impervious to nearly every substance known to man, and commonly use as a piping transporter of research laboratory liquid acid waste, safety encasement on gas station distribution piping, as well as the storage tanks.  Not only does fiberglass posses chemically impervious properties, but also durability in strength is challenging, noted in its use as the material of choice in the marine industry.  Cooling towers are currently rated for 150MPH lateral wind, weather environments, and carries a 10 year warrantee on the casing structure.  As can be seen in photo below, the retrofitted steel cooling tower on this project did not withstand the rigors of the environment as well as the heavy doses of chemicals required to provide the high quality of water condition needed in a steam generating process of this type.

In short, this was the perfect marriage of equipment material composition with process environment requirements.  Please visit our web site at HVACFL.COM to view the many other project locations as well as our extensive line of air conditioning products.
