10/14/09: Air Conditioning for the Drive Assembly
As you might well imagine, the Drive Assembly puts out heat, and during the summer the heat in the Machine Room can get intense enough to trip safety mechanisms and shut if off. So an air conditioning unit, with its accompanying ductwork must be installed to keep the Drive Motor cool enough to operate safely even though the Machine Room’s temperature goes up.
It was on this day that author Michael Connelly who writes the popular Harry Bosch mystery novels, was being interviewed aboard Sinai by Val Zavala of PBS’ SoCal Connected, about his recent novel Angels Flight. After the interview (and Connelly had departed), President Welborne invited Val and her television crew into the Machine Room for a first-hand look at all the new equipment. They recorded the Drive Assembly in action, while John held forth on what was going on. Val was fascinated!
