Protecting Pumps in Hazardous Areas Easily and Reliably Against dry Running

A new type of detection technology from Siemens protects centrifugal pumps from dry running in hazardous areas. For this purpose, the corporation has developed special current/voltage detection modules for its Simocode pro motor management system. The principles and practical applicability of this technology have been investigated within the scope of a research cooperation project with the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (National Metrology Institute of Germany) in order for it to be certified as an ignition source monitoring device corresponding to a type b1 ignition protection system according to ATEX and IEC Ex. 

No additional sensors needed for monitoring

Simocode pro uses measuring modules to monitor the active electric power consumption of the pump motor to detect a diminishing flow rate and shut off the pump in good time at defined limit values to prevent impending dry running. Additional sensor technology otherwise required to monitor the pump for dry running can be eliminated. A menu-guided teach-in procedure in the engineering software helps the user to set the limit values. The advantages of the new type of active power-based dry running protection from Siemens are not only less hardware, early detection of faults and the avoidance of damage to the pump but also safe, reliable explosion protection, savings in time and money spent on maintenance, as well as higher system availability and economic efficiency.
