Filtrine’s Unique Drinking Water System Design Serves Chilled/Purified Water to Millions of Art and Music Lovers Every Year

Lincoln Center for Performing Arts

Since construction in the 1950s and 1960s, Lincoln Center in New York City has expanded to thirty indoor and outdoor facilities, eleven resident arts organizations and welcomes 5 million visitors annually. To serve drinking water in many of the buildings surrounding the now famous Lincoln Plaza, architects and engineers specified Filtrine Model ES-100-RFC remote chiller/purifiers to circulate chilled/purified drinking water to Filtrine Model 107-14 drinking fountains, and dining areas.

Completed in 2004, one of Lincoln Center’s newer venues, the Frederick P. Rose Hall located in the mixed-use Time Warner Center just down the road, became the first state-of-the-art performance center specifically designed for jazz performance, education and broadcast. It is one of eleven properties worldwide to win the Urban Land Institute’s Global Award for Excellence in 2005. The architects and engineers ordered the same Filtrine drinking system design of a central remote drinking water chiller and multiple fountains that had been so effective in the other Lincoln Center buildings.

The Jazz at Lincoln Center design staff liked the reliability and the low maintenance of Filtrine’s central drinking water system, but were facing a "broken up" layout in other parts of the building that didn't warrant one central drinking water loop. This configuration required a different solution. Filtrine engineers recommended Filtrine Model ES-6-RFC-IW in-wall chiller/purifiers to serve Filtrine 107-14-HL double bowl drinking fountains. The fountains maintained the modern look of the rest of Lincoln Center and the in-wall recirculating chillers enabled the design staff to extend their service beyond the drinking fountains to a cafe and dining area. Additionally, these in-wall units allowed the chillers to be strategically placed in discrete areas for easy access by maintenance staff and out of the public view.

Filtrine offers a wide variety of remote chillers to serve drinking water to multiple outlets. This makes it easy to design the right drinking water system for your application.
