Laboratory Equipment Water Use
New equipment requiring liquid cooling shall be connected to an existing recirculated building cooling water system, new local chiller vented to building exhaust or outdoors, or to the campus chilled water system through an intervening heat exchange system if available. Once through or single pass cooling systems shall not be allowed for soft-plumbed systems using flexible tubing and quick connect fittings for short term research settings. If no alternative to single pass cooling exists, water flow must be automated and controlled to avoid water waste.
