IIoT Centrifugal Pumps to fasten business Processes

IIoT Centrifugal Pumps are of significant importance in several Industry and business processes. They are an integral part of many large-scale heavy industries where industrial processes play a vital role. Centrifugal Pumps see wide usage in Chemical Industry, Petrochemical Industry, Mining, and power generation to name just a few. In such industries, smooth Plant Uptime is a necessity as any glitches in operations can hold up important processes resulting in unwarranted costs.
Thus in these industries, smooth upkeep of equipment is a must. Pumps being significantly important equipment need condition based monitoring at all times. Centrifugal Pumps are plagued with several problems owing to their nature of operations which makes them prone to Downtime.
Manual monitoring of Pumping equipment can be a very cumbersome process. Remote location of pumps, equipment spread over vast area and inhospitable environment, are only some of the physical hindrances. Additionally, it is seen that collecting very minute information such as impeller damage, upcoming downtime and shaft fractures can be difficult.

Technological Solution

With the advent of IIoT technology, manual monitoring is a thing of the past. IoT technology addresses these challenges using technology such as edge computing, analytics, cloud access, and mobile device support.
The process of automatically monitoring centrifugal pump begins with a variety of sensors. The pump is outfitted with multiple sensors that measure vibration, voltage, current, temperature, pressure and flow rate. IIoT gateways designed to connect operational technology to information technology, specifically for brownfield applications, need to be open enough to support a range of sensors, including new sensor technologies as they are merged into the IIoT platform.
