SafeGuard™ is a new predictive maintenance solution designed by Griswold™, part of PSG®, a Dover company and a premier manufacturer of centrifugal pumps. With wireless access and 24/7 proactive alerts, SafeGuard technology not only warns the user when a problem occurs with the pump, but also provides actionable guidance to resolve the root cause of the issue. This proactive approach to pump monitoring can help lower maintenance costs by up to 30% and result in up to 75% fewer breakdowns.
The SafeGuard Preventative Maintenance Solution for centrifugal pumps can lower maintenance costs by up to 30% and result in up to 75% fewer breakdowns.
The SafeGuard Preventative Maintenance Solution allows both the pump and the motor to be remotely monitored 24/7 with continuous cloud connectivity, delivering the true value of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), explains Griswold. It is designed to monitor all types of centrifugal pumps. Four battery-powered sensors are included in the SafeGuard system as well as a node/sensor reader. All four sensors work in unison to predict the full health of both the pump and the motor. This allows for a complete diagnostic analysis that reads the tri-axial vibration, temperature, and electromagnetic values for the pump and motor.
With these capabilities, SafeGuard is able to detect more than 20 failure modes. SafeGuard is the all-inclusive solution for centrifugal pump predictive maintenance.
Griswold adds that their technology is different from other diagnostic solutions that contain data displayed in a complicated way that only diagnostic experts can understand, and do little to support the local maintenance team on a day-to-day basis. Lastly, most solutions are only designed to monitor the health of the pump and ignore the health issues associated with the motor. The SafeGuard solution provides answers to all of these critical needs.
