Making pumps smarter and more connected to the industrial internet of things (IIoT) streamlines condition monitoring, predictive maintenance (PdM), and engineering improvements. Digitalizing these practices reduces the risk of and costs associated with unplanned downtime.
New, intelligent, connected technologies can alert managers and technicians to adverse conditions, giving them more time to make crucial decisions. Modern modeling approaches improve pump engineering and reliability while also driving new service offerings.
IIoT elevates pump monitoring and maintenance
When real-time pump performance data is available, conditions that affect performance –such as cavitation and off-curve operation – can be remedied quickly, before machine damage occurs, says Gene Vogel, pump and vibration specialist at the Electrical Apparatus Service Association (EASA).
