    Cooling Pumps

    Poor cooling performance can have the effect of slowing process production rates, impacting profits. Depending on location, season and ambient conditions, cooling applications can be very sensitive to changes in either the hydraulic performance or the system (such as fouling).

    Our measurement of hydraulic efficiency and system characteristics against benchmarked conditions can prolong operation without intervention and ensure the right corrective works are carried out. Some cooling pumps are vulnerable to poor NPSH conditions, which can lead to cavitation damage, but monitoring NPSH onset can be targeted and avoided.

    Quench Pumps

    Quench pumps have an arduous life and difficult conditions to operate in, often with adverse pH, low NPSHA, and an important production-related output requirement.

    By monitoring these pumps, we enable early recognition of deviation from expected performance and accurate planning of intervention works. Monitoring hydraulic performance also supports the trialling of focused improvements and assessment of innovation.

    Large Process Pumps

    Process pumps tend to be critical items which cannot fail outside planned maintenance outages.

    By monitoring these pumps and providing automated indications of health and estimations for remaining hours to overhaul, we help to ensure an invaluable ability to prioritise finite maintenance resources accurately.

    Steam Turbines

    Steam turbines wear over time and this can cause reduction in shaft power output and increased vibration. Operation close to best efficiency ensures longer mean-time-between-failures and maximises output.

    Measurement of temperature and pressure across can enable the calculation of efficiency. If connected to a generator, the electrical output can be used to calculate the steam mass flow rate. Alternatively, steam turbines can be directly connected to pumps as a back up to an electrical black out. In this case, both pump and turbine performance can be measured thermodynamically, with best efficiency aligned to operate at the duty condition. Any deviation can be quickly recognised and acted upon.
