DESCRIPTION

Texas A&M University in College Station is quickly becoming nationally recognized for its energy-management program. Utilities & Energy Services focuses on the use of materials which have been proven to be cost-efficient and effective. Their HDPE chilled and hot water distribution piping system specification calls for “Mineral powder (GILSULATE®500) to meet insulative qualities, density and compaction requirements.” A 3rd party analysis assisted Texas A&M University in their decision to use Gilsulate 500XR®. Using a heat transfer analysis and their cost per MMBTU to generate chilled water, the ROI will beat their expectations by 27%.

The initial upfront cost of HDPE pipe and Gilsulate 500XR® can provide a substantial and invaluable cost savings of reduced energy demand throughout the life of the system. Gilsulate is proud to be instrumental in assisting A&M with their continued drop in energy costs which they attribute to the efficiencies instituted by the Utilities & Energy Services.
