Learn about the conditions inside mechanical seals
It is often the mechanical seal performance data that is the best and earliest indicator of a critical system problem, even when the seal is not the root cause. Plant operators traditionally have had only a few options for:
- Monitoring mechanical seal internal performance
- Accurately understanding how the pump and seal interact
Because of these blind spots, many critical pump performance issues went undetected, until it was too late.
RedRaven from Flowserve is a comprehensive internet of things (IoT) platform that mitigates these risks by analyzing equipment performance data with technologies specifically designed for pumps, seals and valves. This gives you a clearer understanding of how to increase the efficiency, productivity and reliability of the equipment you use every day.
Comprehensive updates about equipment conditions
With RedRaven IoT solutions for seals, you can monitor temperature, pressure level and flow in the seal and support system to understand conditions that may lead to premature failure. These capabilities enable you to:
- Analyze and predict seal performance
- Avoid unplanned downtime
- Proactively plan maintenance
- Optimize processes
Industries and applications:
- Chemical, general industry, oil and gas, pharmaceutical, power and water
- Condition monitoring of all pumps with mechanical seals
- Predictive analytics for critical pumps with mechanical seals
Insights to make well-informed decisions
- See detailed views of the health of mechanical seals through an online cloud-based portal
- Consult with Flowserve seal specialists for analysis when needed
- Proactively identify and address issues before they cause downtime and disruptions through the combination of sensors and an advanced visualization portal
- Utilize near real-time equipment analysis to predict why critical assets may experience issues and take preventive action
- Identify potential issues earlier than traditional inspection rounds and prevent disruptions before they lead to downtime
How you’ll benefit with RedRaven
- Improved reliability through proactive maintenance
- Enhanced confidence with reliable, data-backed failure analysis
- Reduced time looking for data to use in failure analysis
