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.
