DESCRIPTION

This Dell Medical School project initiated a mindset for “rethinking everything,” including its district energy distribution. The University’s Utilities and Energy Management team pride themselves on cost effective measures of sustainability, efficiency and reliability.

The University has high performance standards and strives to have the most efficient system. The expansion of their campus district energy distribution system needed to be evaluated; an extension of their steam tunnel system was determined not cost effective.  A 3rd party comprehensive review and evaluation was conducted of various pre-insulated and field applied direct buried systems.

Gilsulate500XR® was ultimately chosen for UT Austin’s new direct-buried heating hot water distribution system. Gilsulate’s performance is unlike any other direct buried piping system and we are happy to be the clear reliable and energy efficient choice for UT Austin.
