Remote management of pumps
Various pumps of different types are used in industry, where remote condition monitoring and device level intelligence may be used. These pumps include, among others:
· impeller pump
· submersible pump
· hose pump
As separate devices, the pumps do not necessarily need a permanent operating and condition monitoring solution. However, while being part of a business-critical manufacturing process, the ability to locate the faulting device and the transparency of the operation of the pump are highly valuable information.
Pump condition monitoring provides cost savings, for example, by reducing the time-span effect of a device failure on the production process.
Optimal operations with pump condition monitoring
By bringing intelligence to the pump unit in the form of remote and condition management, the information received from the sensors can be connected to information from external sources. When the local operation of a pump is being optimised, the following information, for example, may be utilised:
· price of electricity
· weather forecast
· other parts of the process.
By preventing process interruptions, optimising energy consumption, and real-time understanding of critical component status and performance, you can provide significant savings, increase quality, and automate operations.
Distence has solutions for both new and existing pumps.
The Distence 100 series intelligent terminals are excellent for pump condition and operations monitoring. The 100 series allows connection to various analog sensors and to a digital bus, for connecting to inverters, for example. The Condence platform, together with the 100 series terminals, will serve as a platform for effective implementation of condition monitoring for both new and existing pumps.
