The solution for pump monitoring: Pump Monitor Comprehensive monitoring of pumps and systems
Reduction of maintenance costs through flexible maintenance intervals for the pumps and motors
Predictive maintenance by including mechanical, electrical, and hydrodynamic variables
Reduction of energy consumption by recording the system efficiency and analyzing the best-fit point
Increased system availability thanks to vibration monitoring and bearing image analysis
Efficient pump monitoring at the Constance wastewater treatment plant
To maintain 24/7 operation, a total of four pumps are installed in the inlet pump station of the Constance wastewater treatment plant. To reduce costs and preserve the environment, the pump station not only has to be constantly available, it also has to be operated at a high level of energy efficiency. With Pump Monitor, the ready-to-install control cabinet solution from Phoenix Contact, those responsible for waste management in the city of Constance found a system that easily satisfies both requirements.
Predictive maintenance Reducing energy consumption and wear
Pumps are known as the heart of a system, but they are also huge energy consumers and cause high maintenance costs. The reason for this often lies in poorly selected performance variables during the planning stage or in incorrect operating modes during operation. Sporadic readings of pump maintenance indicators do not give an adequate impression of the current condition of the system, as they are just snapshots of a long process of wear leading up to failure.
Predictive Maintenance describes the permanent monitoring of systems and assemblies via state-of-the-art sensors. Indications of wear are detected in good time and further damages and failures are avoided.
Digitalization is opening up new opportunities in both industrial and municipal water management for optimizing maintenance and energy management. Predictive Maintenance has established itself as a new approach to predictive maintenance.
Pump monitor More efficiency and more control when performing maintenance on pumps and motors
By using pump monitors, system operators benefit from increased availability and save maintenance costs. The ready-to-install control cabinet solution for pump monitoring reduces energy costs and system wear at the same time. Bearing and machine vibrations are recorded by the integrated sensor module. Connection to a higher-level control system is standardized via PROFINET or OPC communication. Integration into the Resylive web portal or the IoT platform Proficloud.io is easy.
Optimized system availability Analysis of vibration patterns and bearing images
Monitoring all relevant measured parameters, whether mechanical, electrical or hydraulic, is essential for assessing the condition. The bearing and machine vibrations are important parameters. They are recorded by high-resolution sensors on the machine and monitored and pre-evaluated by an integrated sensor module. Monitoring the relevant values makes it possible to detect the onset of damage at an early stage, from cavitation to initial deterioration of the bearing.
Reduced energy consumption System efficiency of the pump and drive motor at a glance
Knowing the best-fit point, the ideal operating point of a pump in the overall pumping station system, and constantly monitoring it for changes due to factors such as wear helps you achieve energy-efficient operation.
Pump Monitor shows you the actual energy savings potential of your system. Our solution determines the optimal system efficiency and provides a best fit point analysis. All relevant values are displayed to the user as a clear traffic light indicator and absolute numbers. As soon as a change occurs, the expanded view shows what the reason for it is.
Life cycle management Cloud integration of the solution
By integrating Pump Monitor into the IoT platform Proficloud.io, you have access to your data at all times, and from anywhere in the world. Intelligent networking opens up further options to you for analyzing your variables. With Pump Monitor, you can manage all aspects of the lifecycle of your system.
Predictive pump maintenance Online status and efficiency monitoring
Monitor the status of your pumps and motors from anywhere, at any time with Pump Monitor. The solution for pump monitoring saves time and personnel costs, because plant inspections are no longer necessary. Thanks to the online connection to your higher-level control system and an integrated web visualization, you can see the status of your plant at a glance.
An intelligent signal light function makes it fast and easy to see what is going on. If there is a malfunction, you can react immediately from a distance and instantly counteract any possible wear or failure.
