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.
SafeGuard is designed to monitor all types of centrifugal pumps. Four battery-powered sensors are included in the SafeGuard system as well as a node/sensor reader. All four sensors work in unison to predict the full health of both the pump and the motor. This allows for a complete diagnostic analysis that reads the tri-axial vibration, temperature, and electromagnetic values for the pump and motor.
With these capabilities, SafeGuard is able to detect more than 20 failure modes. SafeGuard is the all-inclusive solution for centrifugal pump predictive maintenance.
