They bought Liquid Tech coolers from Delfield because they are more energy efficient. Catherine Boucher, manager of food and nutrition services, has learned that the new facility will plumb all of the air conditioners and built-in refrigeration, walk-ins and ice machines, so they will be able to re-use all of that potentially energy- and water-saving condensation.
