Pumps do the heavy lifting of moving liquids through the production process. They consume more energy more than most types of plant assets and are subject to quite a bit of wear and tear. Online continuous monitoring enables operational performance improvements in terms of both reliability and energy consumption. A whitepaper, 3 Innovative Ways to […]

Many of the pumps in process manufacturing and production processes are essential and their failure results in reduced or lost production and increased maintenance costs. In an Upstream Pumping article, Wireless Monitoring Reduces Pump Failures & Maintenance Costs, Emerson’s Brian Atkinson describes way to make use of technology to avoid these failures. He opens citing […]

Unless you are lucky enough to have a process that flows downhill, you likely have pumps moving liquids through the process. And if these liquids come in large volumes such as hydrocarbon movement and storage facilities, these pumps can be very large and dangerous should failures occur. In a World Pipelines article, Flow management starts […]

A U.S. Department of Energy study on pump life cycle costs notes that maintenance and energy costs make up the vast majority of lifecycle costs. Pumps that are critical to the operation of the process typically are installed with online condition-based monitoring (CBM) systems to help prevent failures and provide early warning to allow repairs […]
