System Provides Wireless Remote Monitoring of Cooling Water Treatment
For more than 15 years, VRTX’s mechanical cooling water treatment systems have been harnessing the power of controlled hydrodynamic cavitation combined with filtration to control scale, corrosion and bacteria across a broad spectrum of water quality levels.
Now, its V-SURE GSM cell phone modem interfaces with a skid-mounted programmable logic controller that automates the system’s operation while continually monitoring performance, based on customizable parameters.
V-SURE can communicate with and monitor a VRTX system independent of a customer’s network. System data is made available via a secure web portal enabling users to view current and historical system performance anytime and from anywhere. If an alarm condition occurs, V-SURE alerts VRTX personnel who acknowledge the alarm, verify the issue and insure timely resolution. VRTX personnel can trouble shoot and repair many issues remotely, minimizing the need for intervention by a customer’s on-site team.
Communication to and from V-SURE is encrypted. Multiple access levels assure only authorized users can perform monitoring or tasks within the system. The VRTX V-SURE remote monitoring system is currently available and comes standard with all VRTX treatment solutions 20 gpm and above. It can also be retrofitted for existing systems that are currently under contract with VRTX or have been purchased directly and whose owners have requested this service.
