PurgeRite News UTMB Medical

When we were called upon to flush a large 36” chill water pipe for The University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston that had been sitting for over a year, we got our team to work.

Through careful planning and project coordination we were able to execute this custom flush in 12 man days from start to finish achieving high flow and volume with filtration.

The field teams were great to work with and PurgeRite was successful in getting best of class results of low water iron content, and a clean, and energy efficient ready pipe for their system.

The upgrade includes elevating the west utility plant mechanical equipment to prevent flooding and a flood wall around the plant. An east utility plant is also being added to the campus for redundancy.

Per campus officials’ “The end goal is to keep the campus operational in the event of a storm.”
