Climate Management System for Corrosion Control Facilities


Author Organization(s):

Report Date:



Many Department of Defense (DoD) facilities include climate-controlled buildings. Industrial buildings may require energy intensive heating and cooling, and these requirements may vary depending on operations. Furthermore, Corrosion Control Facilities (CCFs) pose multiple climate control challenges. Minimizing energy use in CCFs can be especially challenging because of the intensity and breadth of environmental control requirements including (i) lighting control; (ii) generating hot water and steam; (iii) providing breathing air; (iv) removing hazardous air pollutants; (v) heating; (vi) cooling and (vii) meeting air flow standards, all changing with work flow. It is important to manage this energy use carefully. A Climate Management System (CMS) was designed to increase the ability to identify, prioritize, and communicate needed maintenance, system upgrades, and other energy savings opportunities. The CMS was installed at Building 59 (B59) of Warner Robins Air Force base and evaluated for a period of one year. Analysis of the data indicate that the CMS did not change the behaviors of B59 staff and thus energy consumption did not achieve the performance targets. However, the potential energy savings at B59 are still significant, and estimated to be on the order of 17% of fan energy and 10% of chiller-energy.
