Wilden®, part of PSG®, a Dover company and a worldwide leader in specialty pumps, is pleased to introduce Wilden SafeGuard™ – the industry’s first air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pump Internet of Things (IoT) enabled remote performance monitoring and alert system.
No matter how comprehensive the maintenance schedule, pump breakdowns and compromised performance are always possible, making it imperative that operators of manufacturing facilities know how their AODD pumps have been performing. Many pump-performance concerns – including high cost of downtime, repairs, lost product and product cleanup – can be managed through the advanced monitoring of AODD pumps.
The Wilden SafeGuard all-inclusive pump-monitoring system remotely tracks, records and alerts customers to key performance indicators – such as leak detection, stroke rate and total stroke count – of AODD pumps during operation. It provides real-time alerts via SMS or email to indicate any noteworthy change in operations that may be a precursor to or indicators of component failure. Wilden SafeGuard also provides the ability to store maintenance records to help identify patterns to further enhance preventative maintenance plans. The Wilden SafeGuard solution has been designed to monitor a single pump or a fleet of AODD pumps within one dedicated software system.
The connected Wilden SafeGuard system is composed of a single battery-powered sensor mounted directly onto the pump. This sensor collects and analyzes pump-performance data in real-time and transmits it to a central gateway for encryption and transmission to the Cloud. Once stored on the Cloud, real-time and historic operational information can be accessed by the user anywhere in the world through a secure smartphone app or online portal.
