Due to the nature of the equipment used in chemical plants, operators require a monitoring solution to safely manage equipment health and anticipate equipment failures. For example, chemical plants rely heavily on pumps to move fluids, many of which consist of dangerous materials. The integrity of pumps is of utmost importance as leaks can be threatening to health, safety and the environment (HSE) and often carry hefty fines for the release of chemicals into the environment. Traditionally, vibration monitoring has been used, yet that approach does not detect leaks in pumps.
Veros’ technology provides early detection of pump degradation or process changes which can impact a pump’s integrity. Veros captures and analyzes the rich electrical waveform data to proactively detect common failures on pumps including:
- low flow
- dry running
- impeller damage
- bearing damage
- seal failures
Because Veros can reside in the Cloud, operators can remotely monitor equipment and receive real-time insights to anticipate equipment failures.
