High Pressure Test Unit, Controls Overhaul

This equipment was commissioned in the late 1990s with a significant amount of instrumentation. It transitioned in the last 10 years to being used as a standard motor-triplex pump. The controls program and panel were unnecessarily complex so an overhaul was done. The scope of work is below.

  1. Rewire the controls panel. Remove unnecessary wires between the  programmable logic controller (PLC), variable frequency drive (VFD), and motor starter panel.
  2. Create a replacement labview executable program.
  3. Replace the National Instruments Fieldpoint modules with cRIO modules. Note that below “after” picture shows fieldpoint modules even though these were replaced.

Pictures of before Aiken completed this scope of work are below.
