ECOFLOW advanced conventional pump monitoring system

ECOFLOW pump monitoring HMI box from Riventa

ECOFLOW is one of our conventional pump monitoring systems using advanced pump flow technology. It is your essential tool for real-time performance tracking in small to medium sized stations, and for monitoring and optimising pump and station performance.

The ECOFLOW fixed system is one of our pump monitoring products. We can specify, deliver, install and commission a pump monitoring solution directly to your pumping system. Contact us for more

Why conventional pump monitoring?

Pumping system characteristics typically change with demand and station operation. By using pump monitoring over a set period changes can be observed and controlled.

Often hidden characteristics are discovered that can lead to major improvements in overall operating efficiency and pump lifecycle costs. Results can provide valuable pump data that will make real-time optimisation a reality, and deliver a platform for planning capital expenditure and minimising whole-life costs. Pump monitoring is also able to reduce energy consumption, carbon emissions, hydraulic failure and premature wear.

The extremely precise measurements delivered by our ECOFLOW system will help you to:

Obtain accurate, quality data about your assets

Analyse and visualise performance

Increase station efficiency and performance

Maximise energy saving opportunities

How the ECOFLOW system works

Because a pump is usually part of a dynamic system, its contribution will vary with demand and system characteristics.

Our ECOFLOW pump monitoring system can monitor hydraulic performance and pump efficiency. In conjunction with our operator interface software, the real-time effectiveness of each pump can be evaluated and accurate data generated to make optimisation happen.

Real-time data

Our ECOFLOW system delivers the following data, which are the building blocks of optimisation: pump efficiency (%), motor power (kW), flow rate (l/s) and pump head (m).

Measurements

The following measurements are taken: hydraulic measurement (Ps, Pd, Qs), electrical power measurement (kW), asset performance information, and utilises site flow meter and power meters.

What’s included:

System highlights

  • Requires no user maintenance
  • Works with virtually any pump (including low head systems where thermodynamics is less effective)
  • Measures individual pump efficiency and flow rate using our innovative and patented core technology
  • Trends pump degradation over time, predicting a cost-effective time for replacement, refurbishment, coating or maintenance
  • Supports planned maintenance programmes by tracking reduction in pump efficiency
  • Provides pump head, flow, efficiency and power
  • Integrates with SCADA, standalone or web-access (security assured)
  • Offers a real alternative to regular on-site pump testing

System components

  • One FREEFLOW pump monitor
  • One 10-bar suction pressure transducer
  • One 20-bar delivery pressure transducer
  • One power measurement system (LV/HV)
  • One touch screen local operator panel
  • One pump-side data acquisition unit
  • Two insertion glands per pump

Operator interface software

  • Alongside system components, our ECOFLOW pump monitoring system captures, processes and provide data to managers and operators via our interface software. Every minute of the day and night, enhanced information is made available from ECOFLOW to improve station efficiency and reduce operating costs
