Gryphon provides the full scope of engineering services for the design of instrumentation and control systems for various power plant, utility, industrial and institutional projects.

Gryphon has experience with a wide range of instrumentation and control systems. Our projects include both the upgrading of existing plant control systems, and the installation of new control systems for clients such as Cornell University, Union Gas Power, Henderson Hospital, Northland Power, TransCanada Power, Kimberly-Clark and Potter Station Power.

Gryphon has planned, specified, selected and provided engineering services for:

  • field instrumentation
  • plant distributed control systems (DCS)
  • programmable logic controllers (PLC)
  • data acquisition systems
  • SCADA systems

Gryphon's responsibilities typically include integration of the plant controls with various vendor supplied control systems such as boiler control, burner management systems, gas and steam turbine generator control and auxiliary equipment PLC's.

Gryphon's instrumentation and control design is integrated closely with the mechanical and electrical engineering throughout the project to ensure all defined control and monitoring requirements are implemented successfully.
