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.
