TJP has designed a wide variety of aquarium systems ranging from completely closed inland systems which utilize artificial saltwater, to relatively open coastal aquarium systems using natural seawater.
In addition to designing the recirculation systems for exhibits, our projects have included the subsystems necessary to support the exhibit life support system (LSS).
TJP has designed LSS for virtually every aquatic animal on display in zoological facilities.
Water treatment systems for zoological exhibits must consider both the animal waste and the system loading associated with animal activities.
TJP and our staff have worked on the ground-up design of LSS for the largest marine parks in Asia, Europe and North America. Our work at large amusement and theme parks spans the range from master planning, thru design, construction and startup of our systems, to retrofit of new features within the original park facilities.
TJP has designed specialized water systems for a wide range of laboratory and specialty aquatics facilities. These projects are primarily coastal institutions utilizing natural seawater; however, we have also completed a variety of inland projects utilizing artificial seawater or freshwater including NASA's Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory in Texas.
