Project Name: VF Work Wear (Phoenix Investors) Covington, TN (Division of VF Image wear)
Project Scope: This is a 1.3 – million-dollar project that consists of installing mechanical equipment to cool, heat and control humidity of an existing 250,000 square foot manufacturing facility. This facility ships, distributes and modifies work wear clothing for all types of service industries.
Completion Time: 120 days- Completed July 15, 2020.
Safety Information: Project was completed with zero incident or injuries.
Project Summary: The owner of this project required that this system not intrude on any floor space while meeting indoor air quality requirements, provide comfort cooling and be energy efficient.
This project was designed as an outdoor packaged system with overhead fabric duct for air distribution to allow customer to maintain their floor space. To meet indoor air quality standards, we designed the equipment to bring in as much outside air as possible and maintain humidity control with hot gas reheat.
The HVAC system for the facility, consists of 8 – 50-Ton, Trane Voyager Gas Fired Packaged Units (400 tons) with hot gas reheat. Four (4) units were installed on each side of the plant with metal duct vertically mounted to outside of the wall. All interior ducts are comprised of DuctSox ranging from 100’ to 250’ straight runs.
The equipment is controlled by a Reliable Controls Mach-ProWebCom building automation front end. The Reliable Controls web-based control system gives the owner and maintenance staff the ability to fully control all eight systems. This includes scheduling and set point control, via a web-based browser to allow the owners to achieve optimal control, to eliminate excessive run times and to achieve a lower energy usage and lower cost of operations.
