Case Study: Derby Lane

Case Study: Derby Lane


Derby Lane Greyhound Track is a racino located in St. Petersburg, Florida. It is the largest and oldest (since 1925) continuously operating greyhound track in the world. The huge, four level facility offers dining, the top racing dogs in the world, large poker rooms and simulcast pari-mutual wagering on hundreds of TVs from tracks around the country.


The facility’s huge HVAC system is a costly one, given the 24-hour operation in the hot Florida weather. With thousands of visitors daily, management was looking at ways to reduce expenses.


Several ScaleBlaster systems – three SB-2800s, one SB-3600 and two SB-350s were installed on the cooling towers, chillers, condenser lines, chilled water line and their huge boilers.
