Project Details

TST performed an energy-efficiency improvement project for the Department of Veterans Affairs to restore the thermal efficiency of steam piping at eight (8) VA Medical Centers throughout Louisiana, Georgia, South Carolina, and Alabama. Over a period of eleven months, over 3,500 custom-made Removable Insulation Covers were manufactured and installed on boilers, heat exchangers, valves, strainers, elbows, tees, flanges and other miscellaneous piping/equipment in an effort to reduce heat losses and save energy. TST performed insulation assessments and energy savings analysis’ at each hospital to identify all bare or poorly insulated pipe fittings in power plants, boiler houses, mechanical rooms, manholes, pits, vaults and underground tunnels. Once the targets were identified and approved by the VA, custom-made RICs were designed, manufactured and installed.
