With the launch of digital products and services, the first product to be introduced by Seepex is the Pump Monitor for continuous status monitoring. The high-performance Seepex progressive cavity pumps are brought to intelligent life with the small box connected to the pump. This means that the pump specialist is offering a proprietary solution for the diagnosis of progressive cavity pumps.
Creating the Intelligent Pump with the SEEPEX Pump Monitor
The Pump Monitor turns the pump into an intelligent field device that continuously monitors itself. With the connection to a flexibly combinable set of sensors, live data such as the temperature, pressure, flow rate, etc. are measured and displayed and all data are recorded for a subsequent performance analysis. The Pump Monitor is a meaningful addition when purchasing new pumps – but it can also be retrofitted to pumps that are already installed. In order to determine whether their pump is running properly, users can read off the current and recorded values measured by the sensors directly at any time from the pump’s display or connect to the pump via Bluetooth and Seepex’s own app.
Users can also set warning and alarm thresholds in a multi-level alarm model in order to be informed of any deviations of the pump from the target behavior. Options for connecting to the existing local process control engineering are of course available.
Monitoring in Several Dimensions
The Pump Monitor is available in different versions and can be connected to various sensors – individually according to customer requirements. While the Pump Monitor works locally with the Bluetooth or control room connection as described and is aimed at users who do not want to allow data transfer to external systems, there are also variants available in more interactive designs.
