RECOMMENDATION
Ratify a purchase from ProTech for labor and material to replace a Trane RTAHU unit with Daikin OAH series RTAHU at Nueces County jail.
BACKGROUND
The unit is about 15 years old and supports 4 large holding cells.  The chilled water coils are completely deteriorated (fractured, with cracks in numerous areas, and rusted connections). The entire unit must be replaced.  This unit (RTU-1) is not available off the shelf and will have to be specially fabricated by the factory which can take 4-6 weeks or more.  Right now Public Works has patched the coils up with epoxy paste. This is a very temporary fix and is being done as a last resort.   If the epoxy patch repair fails, there will be nowhere to hold inmates and violates the Texas Jail Standards.
DISCUSSION
Purchase is to be paid from 1500 Mechanical Maintenance 2014-2015 budget.
