Monitoring and Controls
The Flowserve IPS Beacon is a data acquisition, logging and visual alert device that monitors process pump health, checking power-end vibration and temperature against pre-set limits.
IPS Wireless is a cost-effective, reliable and scalable data communications system that enhances plant productivity and profitability. Learn more about the design, features and benefits of the Flowserve IPS Wireless System for Equipment Monitoring and Control.
A petroleum products distribution facility was experiencing reliability issues with its butane injection pumps. IPS Tempo drives replaced the installation’s diaphragm control valves, resulting in a much more efficient and reliable pumping system. The ROI was less than two years.
An ammonia/urea facility was experiencing shaft failures every six to nine months on its Benfield solution pumps. IPS APEX is an essential component in a monitoring and diagnostics system that has successfully averted shaft failures since it was installed more than three years ago.
Flowserve engineers were engaged to assess the fire water distribution system in a refinery. The challenge involved obtaining hydraulic data for a plant that sprawled over five square miles and to do so without interrupting operations. IPS Wireless was the key.
Through the application of advanced technologies, Flowserve Intelligent Process Solutions (IPS) family of products helps customers proactively manage their plant assets to increase plant uptime and reduce equipment life cycle costs. Flowserve offers advanced monitoring solutions – wired and wireless – for permanent and portable data collection and analysis of vital plant assets.
Monitoring and control solutions from Flowserve are engineered specifically to address process and equipment issues. As a result, user interfaces are highly intuitive and information is easy to interpret and immediately actionable.
In addition, Flowserve is on the leading edge of predictive monitoring and diagnostics. Onboard sensors and intelligent pumping algorithms make it possible for plant operators to predict system behavior before failure or disruption, thus protecting their most critical plant assets.
