MLS and The Dept. of Fish and Wildlife Hatch a New Solution

- Tuesday, June 05, 2018


A day in the life here at Mitchell Lewis.

One of Mitchell Lewis’ long standing relationships is with the Department of Fish & Wildlife. We are proud to support an organization that does so much for present and future generations providing opportunities to hunt, fish and explore the outdoors. As many of our employees and customers are avid outdoorsmen; we wanted to share one of the recent projects we did for the Department of Fish & Wildlife.

This project was acquired by Industrial Controls Product Manager Darin Malcolm. Darin visited with the Department of Fish & Wildlife to better understand their needs for supplying and maintaining water levels for their fish hatcheries. This specific panel was designed for the Rock Creek Fish Hatchery in southern Oregon. This fish hatchery produces Chinook, coho, steelhead salmon and two stocks of rainbow trout.

The water source for the hatchery are the Rock Creek and North Umpqua rivers. There are five short set turbines that pump out water from these two rivers into the hatchery.

After consulting with our electrical engineering team, Mitchell Lewis & Staver provided a comprehensive solution that will monitor and maintain water levels for both their fish pond and fish trays.

This panel is equipped with 5 – 75HP Danfoss VFD’s that are utilizing a cascade control card which controls a five pump system alternating on a lead lag system.

This is just another example displaying the wide range of expertise and solutions we provide on a daily basis.

We are very proud of the MLS Controls Team and the solutions we provide of customers!
