Circor International has announced the Allweiler IN-1000 condition monitoring device, said to be suitable for pumps in operationally critical and environmentally sensitive chemical engineering applications.
With one master and up to 10 satellite modules per network, the device lets operators monitor as many as 11 pumps at once.
Built-in features include a two-level warning and alarm system, logging of sensor data, and remote monitoring with a smartphone app.
The Circor unit is available with ATEX certification for use in EX zones. With the device, operators can assess expected versus actual performance on such key indicators as leak detection and bearing temperature, vibration, suction, and discharge pressure.
The “smart platform” can be used for a wide range of condition monitoring applications, from simple, single-pump installations to complex, multi-pump systems.
It can be added to new pumps or retrofitted to existing pumps. Remote access is enabled with a smartphone app, an integrated web server and router, making it possible to monitor as many as 11 pumps from anywhere with Wi-Fi access.
