IIoT Sensors for Centrifugal Pumps

Introduction:

Introduction The IoT platform for IIoT integrated smart pumping solutions comprise of three significant parts: Sensors, including cables and junction boxes Data collection device Monitoring/analysis software

Why Sensors?:

Why Sensors? Sensors are an integral component of IIoT solutions. The type of sensor you choose will help your technology partner customize the solution to your specific business needs. Sensors allow monitoring to be done remotely without any physical inspection. Since Centrifugal pumps owing to the nature of their operation tend to experience variable flow they have a greater probability of damage due to overheating and dry running among other causes. Due to this these pumps can face long periods of downtime . However, with real-time monitoring, it is possible to provide predictive maintenance to avoid sudden component failure and eventual downtime. Real-time monitoring is possible by attaching relevant sensors to hardware to pick data about vital parameters of pump operation.

Types of sensors that can be attached to centrifugal pumps::

Types of sensors that can be attached to centrifugal pumps: Temperature sensors : Dry running or low flow can result in rise of internal temperature of the centrifugal pump. Temperature sensors help detect heating in real time as well as analyze operational patterns that lead to increase in temperature. It helps to ensure optimal environment temperature Pressure sensors : Pressure sensors sense pressure and convert it into an electric signal. Here, the amount depends upon the level of pressure applied. Since Centrifugal Pumps rely on liquid for creating flow pressure; these sensors can detect any deviation from standard pressure range.

Types of sensors that can be attached to centrifugal pumps::

Types of sensors that can be attached to centrifugal pumps: Water quality sensors : If the pump deals in pumping water such as in municipal water quality sensors will help to detect the water quality, chlorine residue, suspended solids, pH-level and Ion monitoring among other requirements. Chemical sensors : Chemical sensors are ideal for centrifugal pumps used in Chemical Industry. Their goal is to indicate changes in liquid or air chemical changes. Highly corrosive chemicals can lead to pump leakages causing health hazard. Further presence of corrosive articles can erode internal pump components and substantially reduce pump performance.

Types of sensors that can be attached to centrifugal pumps::

Types of sensors that can be attached to centrifugal pumps: Gas sensors: Used to monitor changes of air quality and detect the presence of various gases. Used in centrifugal pumps to detect presence of toxic or combustible gas. Hazardous gas monitoring is done in pumps used for coal mines, Oil & Gas industries, chemical Laboratory research, Manufacturing – paints, plastics, rubber, pharmaceutical & petrochemical, etc. Smoke sensors: A smoke sensor is a device that senses smoke (airborne particulates & gases ) and it’s level. They are especially useful to indicate leakage of poisonous gases from pumps. They are a good follow up to temperature sensors or chemical and gas sensors. IR sensors: An infrared is used to sense certain characteristics of its surroundings by either emitting or detecting infrared radiation. It is also capable of measuring the heat being emitted by an object. They can be installed on pumps to gather data about task competitions.

Types of sensors that can be attached to centrifugal pumps::

Types of sensors that can be attached to centrifugal pumps: Level sensors: Used to determine the level or amount of fluids, liquids or other substances that flow in an open or closed system. They are primarily known for measuring fuel levels, but they are also used in pumps that work with liquid materials. Magnetic Sensors : A Magnetic sensor or Hall Effect sensor is a transducer which varies its output voltage in reaction to a magnetic field. In Centrifugal pumps they can be used to detect structural wear on impeller blades of centrifugal pumps.
