Innovative’s Adam Ring and Jason Scott were over at the Dallas Fair Park fountain project earlier in the week when the crew fired up the giant geyser, which reaches an estimated 40-50 feet. Plan is to have this project done in time for State Fair of Texas, but with all of the rain this summer, it will be cutting it close.
This particular fountain has more than 240 individual jets powered by 22 seperate 50HP pumps. The geyser has four jets each powered by its own 20HP pump. When finished, State Fair spectators will be treated to a fountain display that is choreographed to tantalizing music scores, preferrably some John Philip Sousa tunes.
Innovative Automation built all of the control panels for the project at its UL508A control panel electrical shop.
When the geyser fired up, it was visible from nearby I-30 and drew the interest of a traffic/news helicopter in the area, who might have though it was a catastrophic water main break.
