Mechanical Systems Diagnostic Review® (MSDR)

An MSDR is a quantitative assessment of "behind-the-curtain" mechanical system performance looking at make-up air, piping, pumps, primary/secondary concepts, chillers, cooling towers, or other heat rejection equipment. The purpose is to identify actual capacity, real redundancy, and incapacity (the portion of the mechanical plant which is running, but not creating or delivering cooling). This assessment provides the analytical basis for determining what incapacity can be inexpensively recovered. Paybacks of less than one year are typical.
