Waukesha Memorial Hospital in Waukesha, WI, is a full-service health care facility comprising some 900,000 sq ft. Established in 1914, the hospital employs approximately 2,480 people with a maximum capacity of 263 beds. In an area of the hospital where 20 induction coils are located off the chilled water main, considerable maintenance was required on a regular basis.
The hospital's air and dirt problems required two men to vent, bleed, and purge the coils for up to two weeks consuming some 160 hours. This task was done three times a year to keep the coils operating.
