Wireless Pump Monitoring

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 to address the root cause. Wireless pump health monitoring provides insight into the condition of essential pumping assets to reduce unplanned maintenance. 

Emerson’s AMS 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 AMS 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. 

Emerson's AMS 9420 Wireless Vibration Transmitter delivers vibration information over a highly-reliable, self-organizing wireless network for use by operations and maintenance personnel. Configuration, diagnostics, and alerts are imported into AMS Suite: Intelligent Device Manager. The AMS 9420 is ideal for vibration monitoring applications, especially in hard-to-reach or cost prohibitive locations, and provides reliability with advanced accuracy for all installations.

The Smart Wireless Gateway connects WirelessHART™ self-organizing networks with host systems and data applications. Modbus communications over RS-485 or Ethernet provide universal integration and system interoperability. The optional OPC functionality from the Gateway offers a means to connect to newer systems and applications while providing a richer set of data.

Emerson's AMS Machinery Health Manager diagnoses and communicates the health of mechanical and rotating machinery using data from several predictive maintenance technologies. This includes integrating data from third-party, complimentary technology vendors such as mini labs and handheld oil analyzers from Spectro Scientific, and popular infrared and thermography cameras from FLIR and Fluke.
