Pumps are vital to maximizing and maintaining production. Upsets or slowdowns can have a major financial impact by reducing production and increasing maintenance costs and downtime. The ability to differentiate between mechanical and process induced degradation is vital to optimizing the corrective actions required that address the root cause. Wireless Pump Health Monitoring provides insight into the condition of essential pumping assets to reduce unplanned maintenance.
Emerson’s CSI technologies provide multiple options to monitor and protect pumps. Unique stress wave technology allows for differentiation between process conditions such as cavitation, resulting from mechanical conditions such as imbalance, looseness, misalignment and bearing failure. Seal failure, plugged strainers and oil degradation are all detected utilizing easy-to-deploy devices and technologies. The CSI 9420 vibration monitoring transmitters communicate information to the AMS Machinery Health Manager wirelessly via the Emerson 1420 gateway, providing valuable insight into the health of your assets allowing producers to plan proactive maintenance programs.
