ANSWER

The Site Preparation Guide gives the power consumption of each module. 

Scroll down in the Site Preparation Guide to the Power Requirements section.

The summary table lists the "Typical Power Consumption". The units may be in either W (Watts) or VA (Volt-Ampere). W = VA (because the power factor is 1)

To convert from W or VA to Btu/hr: W * 3.413=Btu/hr

1 ton of refrigeration (cooling) = 12000Btu/hr

To determine total cooling requirement, calculate the heat load for each system in the lab. 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

If you have been assigned an Implementation Manager, they should be able to give you the Site Preparation Guide for your system. If you have not yet purchased a system or have not been assigned an Implementation Manager, please contact MS_Service@waters.com and request the guide for the module you want.
