What to Know About Pump Monitoring Systems

Pump monitoring systems are integral to maintaining proper functioning in a wide range of systems. These types of systems serve to consistently monitor levels of energy efficiency for each pump in the water or wastewater system. Pump monitoring systems operate by measuring and monitoring the electrical parameters of the pump power supply.

Considering the purpose and function of these essential monitoring systems, understanding the maintenance methods that are best suited for a wide range of pump monitoring systems is a simplified process.

How to control a pump

In order to properly control and monitor a pump, there are a few key factors to be mindful of. Monitoring the pump’s flow rate, pressure levels, and purpose are among the most important factors.

Pump control systems are a widely used method for achieving the most efficient control levels. These systems provide beneficial controls that may be used to better monitor the functioning of operations also. Pump monitoring systems serve to ensure the functioning of important operations such as pump speed and output pressure.

The process of controlling a pump’s speed is often completed through monitoring and varying the pump’s motor speed. This method is typically completed through the use of a Variable Frequency Drive and Controller, for example, which serves to aid in monitoring and controlling the variable speed.

Managing the output pressure of a pump with pump monitoring systems is completed by setting the necessary flow rate of pressure for the pump.

The types of monitoring controls

Control systems aid in understanding the proper methods of how to control a pump. Each type of monitoring control serves a highly important purpose in maintaining the pump’s function. Understanding how the types of controls work aids in the process of maintaining control systems.

One of the most innovative types of control systems involves a remote control for pumps. Remote pump controls provide a much more safe and efficient method for operators to manage a pump system.

Preventative controls are used in order to maintain proper functioning throughout the pump system and ensure risk factors are minimized

Detective controls are designed to provide essential evidence of the occurrence and history of errors or damages.

Corrective controls serve to monitor and notify operators should system errors or damages occur. Once notified of the occurrence of any risks or damages, maintenance and corrective action may be taken in order to ensure that the system is functioning as needed.

The importance of pump monitoring and control

The proper pump condition monitoring techniques are essential in keeping a pump system functioning optimally. Predictive maintenance is a highly beneficial monitoring technique that helps to ensure that a pump system is functioning properly, with risks of damage minimized.

With the aid of real time data from monitoring and control systems, managing a pump system is more efficient and safer. The risks of dangers or damage occurring is further minimized with the real time data that provides alerts and important notifications regarding the quality of the pump’s function. Many pump monitoring and control systems also have features such as the segregation of duties. These features serve to add ease to the monitoring and control process and allow for improved clarity in data.
