2022 will mark the 100th anniversary of the Houston Zoo and with it they plan to completely overhaul their exhibit. The "Heart of the Zoo" project is part of this year's transformation which includes the "Texas Wetlands" habitat that features bald eagles, turtles, alligators, and whooping cranes.
We were able to be a part of this transformation with the provision of the pumps and controls that will transfer water for the wetlands addition. Below you will see the control panel being prepared for shipment.
This control panel was manufactured by Smith Pump's control panel group located in Waco, Texas and will operate two 30 horsepower Flowserve Submersible Solids Handling Pumps. The panel is equipped with variable frequency drives which allow you to operate the pumps at variable speeds for the desired flow rate needed. It is one of the many panels built in our shop each year. Smith Pump Company specializes in custom control panels to meet your needs.
Look for the completion of the "Texas Wetlands" in the Spring of 2019.
