The Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville is a beautiful campus in a prime location only a few miles from the Atlantic ocean. While this is a great location for a medical campus, it can be tough on outdoor equipment. In this case, the 15 year old RTUs on their Cannaday lab & office building had begun to show signs of corrosive wear & tear.
For most manufacturers, the only remedy for casing corrosion would have been complete replacement of the (6) RTUs. But with Temtrol’s Welded Frame (WF) design, replacement of corroded panels is as easy as bolt-off the old panel, bolt-on the new panel.
Bottom line: Rebuild - to “like new” condition - of all (6) units cost less than complete replacement of a single unit, and it was accomplished in (2) weekend outages without any interruption of building occupancy.
Also worth noting is that Temtrol is one of the few RTU manufacturers who can meet the wind pressure and impact requirements required by current codes for rooftop usage in a location like this.
