Predictive maintenance solution improves pump diagnostics

Thursday, November 29th, 2018 von admin

Griswold, a manufacturer of centrifugal pumps, developed SafeGuard as an predictive maintenance solution. It allows both the pump and the motor to be remotely monitored 24/7 with continuous cloud connectivity, delivering the true value of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). If an issue occurs, a proactive alert is automatically generated, including clear actionable guidance that can be easily followed by maintenance personnel to resolve the root cause of the issue. This proactive approach to pump monitoring can help lower maintenance costs “by up to 30% and result in up to 75% fewer breakdowns” – acc. an information of the manufacturer.

New oil-free, dry compressing screw vacuum pump

Thursday, November 29th, 2018 von admin

The Leybold specialists named the new 100% oil-free, dry compressing screw vacuum pump Varodry. These pumps will initially be available in the sizes for 65 m³/h and 100 m³/h, the 160 and 200 m³/h versions are already in preparation.

The pumps of the Varodry series are developed for the manufacturing industry. In industrial processes, vacuum pumps do not only need to handle clean air, but also dirt, particles, outgassing of media and vapors. Processes do also not always work stable, other disturbance factors might also be involved. The pump must be able to tolerate all of this. In addition, these pumps are able to handle vapors in the best possible way. Aand due to its integrated silencer the pump offers also a quiet and pleasant sound profile.

IE5 motor with electronic speed control for the IEC market

Wednesday, November 28th, 2018 von admin

WEG developed electronically commutated motors (WECM) for heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) applications in the IEC market at this year’s edition of SPS IPC Drives in Nuremberg (Germany). The energy-efficient permanent magnet motors with aluminium housings in frame size IEC 80 cover the power range from 0.12 W to 1.1 kW, with a choice of rated speeds: 1,500, 1,800 and 3,000 rpm. Integrated electronic speed control enables the drive units (motor and variable speed drive) to achieve market-leading efficiency levels. In addition, the low-noise, compact WECM motors fulfil all relevant IEC and HVAC standards. Easy programming and outstanding efficiency make them a cost-effective solution for pump, fan and ventilator manufacturers.
