The company now offers additional protection for the longevity of its pumps. The Allready Box is an electronic module that continuously monitors a pump’s operational state. In the event of operational deviations or disturbances, it immediately emits a warning. In urgent cases it triggers an alarm and even has the ability to switch the pump off in hazardous conditions and switch over to a secondary unit. This monitoring device can be mounted on new pumps or retrofitted to existing pumps at any time. One sensor measures the liquid level in a leak can below the shaft seal. A second sensor monitors the temperature at the bearing bracket. If one of the values reaches a critical value the device will trigger an optical warning. If the level or temperature continues to climb and exceeds a second limit value, it will trigger an alarm. Signals can also be forwarded to external displays and integrated into the customer’s structures, such as an existing control center.
The GF320 Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) camera from FLIR Systems offers unmatched advantages for non-invasive monitoring of leaks...
