Gasketed Plate and Frame Heat Exchanger
Posted in QTS Atlanta Metro

In a gasketed plate and frame heat exchanger, the fluids run counter-currently through the heat exchanger. The hot liquid normally enters through one of the upper connections and leaves through the connection underneath. The cold liquid enters through one of the lower connections and leaves through the connection above.

As the fluids pass through the heat exchanger, heat is transferred from the hot media to the cold media.

Posted in QTS Princeton

The QTS Princeton Solar Array is a 14.1 Megawatt Photovoltaic System, one of the largest, privately owned, net metered photovoltaic systems in the Western Hemisphere. The Solar Array occupies approximately 50 acres of a 194 acre campus. The PV system contains over 57,000 solar modules, 24 power inverters and was constructed on a portion of the campus that was previously used for an agricultural purpose. The project site is surrounded on two sides by existing residential neighborhoods which resulted in the need to address both the visual and the physical impact of the extensive renewable energy facility on the adjacent community.
