Condition Monitoring for Industrial Pumps

Before there was technology for it, a maintenance professional used to walk in the production area and make checkups to hear if there were any problems with the production machinery. Sound has given them valuable information about the condition of the machines. It has always been and still is the most important source of information in detecting looming defects. However, there are noises even the most experienced maintenance experts can’t hear. AuresSound can help with that. It senses much higher and lower frequencies than human ear.

 

Industrial pump is a machine that wears out in use just like any other industrial machine and an occurrence of a fault is inevitable. Faults can occur as wearing of bearings and impellers as well as blockages in pumps. A faulty pump consumes more energy and thus has a higher operating cost. With the help of AuresSound, you can hear those faults sooner than any other technology can.

 

AuresSound is sound based condition monitoring system that enables you to forecast looming defects and thus prevent the complete failure of the pump. AuresSound will track the functioning of bearings and impellers and the overall condition of the pump. It will notify you in real-time about the faults. AuresSound has a feature that will tell what and where has happened. This makes locating the source of the defect way easier. With AuresSound you will be able to plan your maintenance schedules. It enables you to decide when is the right time to overhaul the pump. AuresSound was developed to bring a tool for industrial companies maintenance workers to act on threatening faults. Even the ones other technologies are not able to hear before immediate maintenance is needed.

 

An Illustration of How AuresSound Works

AuresSound™ uses acoustic methods for solving industrial maintenance and condition monitoring problems.

Waste water pumping stations are one of many applications where AuresSound™ is effective. The video illustrates what happens when an underwater pump starts and stops.
