Three Fire Pump Controllers for Fisher Industries

HPI provided the controls of three diesel-driven firewater pumps for Fisher Industries, Inc. in less than three months. These pumps were destined for Adriatic LNG in Italy.

The HPI controls were designed and installed in compliance with NFPA and European design standards. The control panels were fitted inside a new IP-66 ABTECH SX7 316 stainless steel CE Mark panel suitable for the specified environment. The junction boxes and cable tray that HPI provided were designed for the specified environment as well. The replacement controls are based upon the Allen-Bradley ControlLogix™ PLC. The system uses chassis-mounted I/O modules. All of the control panels, junction boxes, and cable trays were designed and installed in-house by HPI. HPI also supplied a site manager for overall processes.
