Central Plant Pumping and Distribution Systems

  • Roger W. Haines


A “central plant” refers to a grouping of one or more chillers and/ or boilers supplying chilled and hot water (or steam) to HVAC units located at various points in a building or complex of buildings. The plant is not necessarily centrally located with respect to the HVAC units. Some plants may have only one or two elements while others may contain a dozen or more chillers and boilers. Some large plants, which have grown over a period of years as a campus developed, have been spread out in two or three locations as the originally assigned spaces became too small.
