While processes have been monitored with sensors for many decades, advancements in technology, especially with the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), has made monitoring for improved safety, efficiency, and reliability much more achievable than in the past.
For example, in many plants, pumps that are considered non-critical are not monitored. These are either infrequently manually inspected or run to failure. Today, cost-effective ways are available to monitor
pump health, reducing potential unplanned shutdowns and enhancing
Join Emerson’s Andrew Cureton and Sean Collins-Dippel for an April 20 webinar at 2-3pm CDT. They will discuss ways to prevent unplanned downtime through predictive diagnostics, identify impeller cavitation for operations staff to address before the condition worsens, and recognize abnormal fluid levels in seal pots. In an Interactive Plant Environment (IPE), They will demonstrate Pump Health Monitoring solutions in this interactive setting and give you the opportunity to ask questions and get answers on the spot, as they move around the IPE and show you how you can accomplish your goals.
Andrew and Sean will demonstrate a couple of common issues that can easily be identified with Plantweb Insight, allowing you to address the issues before the pump fails. They will also discuss the instrumentation used to monitor your pumps.
For example, if you have pumps which have experienced cavitation previously, your Pump Health Monitoring kit from Emerson might include Differential Pressure and Vibration detection sensors, letting you identify conditions with time to correct. You could expand your kit to include leak detection or level measurement to gain visibility of seal failures.
Register today and learn more about how to drive safety, efficiency and reliability improvements with your pumps.
If you can’t make it at this time, send a note to the team to set up some time to discuss ways monitor your essential pumps.
