BUILDING: BNL NSLSII (DOE PROJECT)
SERVICE: NEBB CERTIFIED TESTING, ADJUSTING, AND BALANCING
SCOPE: Airside and Balancing Hydronic Systems
Photon Sciences at Brookhaven National Laboratory is entering an exciting new chapter with one of the newest and most advanced synchrotron facilities in the world. NSLS-II will enable the study of material properties and functions with nanoscale resolution and exquisite sensitivity by providing world-leading capabilities for X-ray imaging and high-resolution energy analysis.
This facility is open to users from academia and industry and it begins operations at a time when the world is entering a new era with a global economy fueled largely by scientific discoveries and technological innovations. NSLS-II provides the research tools needed to foster new discoveries and create breakthroughs in critical areas such as energy security, environment, and human health.
The testing of the concentric ductwork in a ring orientation was balanced after each contributing AHU was adjusted to provide the correct flow for the respective zone. The open concept design of the ring facility enables redundancy of mechanical systems. Multiple air flow monitoring station data help the BAS system coordinate operation.
