Satellite Boiler Plants

 

Great Lakes Research Institute

Located at 600 East Greenfield Ave, Mil WI the Great Lakes Research Facility (GLRF) boiler plant consists of two large Cleaver-Brooks hot water, fire tube boilers. The boilers which were manufactured in 1966 are gas fired 150 horse power, each with a total BTU input of 12,550,000. The boilers are opened annually on the fireside and every 3 years on the water side to clean and perform repairs. Hot water leaving the boilers at approximately 200 degrees F. is used through out the building for space heating, cooling reheat and year round for heating of water used for research experiments. This plant is monitored remotely 24 hours a day from the campus Central Heating and Chilling plant. Because these boilers provide hot water for research it is crucial for this plant to stay on line 365 days per year without interruption. Plant staff visits the plant twice per week to visually inspect boiler operation, to perform chemical analysis of boiler water or any time there is indication of boiler malfunction.
