IIoT Solutions for Seals

By: Flowserve

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.

Until now.

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.

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
