DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., May 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Wilden, part of PSG, a Dover (NYSE: DOV) company, and a worldwide leader in specialty pumps, today announced the introduction of the Wilden SafeGuard™, the industry's first air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pump Internet of Things (IoT) enabled remote performance monitoring and alert system.
No matter how comprehensive the maintenance schedule, pump breakdowns and compromised performance are always possible, making it imperative for operators of manufacturing facilities to be familiar with the performance of their AODD pumps. Many pump-performance concerns, including the high cost of downtime, repairs, lost product and product cleanup, can be managed through the advanced monitoring of AODD pumps.
The Wilden SafeGuard all-inclusive pump-monitoring system remotely tracks, records and alerts customers of key performance indicators, such as leak detection, stroke rate and total stroke count of AODD pumps during operation. It provides real-time alerts via SMS or email to indicate any noteworthy change in operations that may be a precursor to or indicators of component failure. To further enhance preventative maintenance plans, Wilden SafeGuard also provides the ability to store maintenance records, helping to identify and monitor patterns. The Wilden SafeGuard solution has been designed to monitor a single pump or a fleet of AODD pumps within one dedicated software system.
The connected Wilden SafeGuard system is composed of a single battery-powered sensor mounted directly onto the pump. This sensor collects and analyzes pump-performance data in real-time and transmits it to a central gateway for encryption and transmission to the Cloud. Once stored on the Cloud, real-time and historic operational information can be accessed by the user anywhere in the world through a secure smartphone app or online portal.
