Pump Manager is a Web-based service that leverages the embedded intelligence and connectivity. Pump Manager provides real-time alerts and warnings—operators have immediate knowledge of challenges such as deadheading, cavitation, a broken coupling, and excessive vibration. The base alerts include pumps operating "in-hand" and excessive run-hours, which can significantly impact energy consumption and availability. Pump Manager also provides online trending and analysis across multiple parameters on single pumps or an aggregated basis for multiple pumps. The trends will assist in identifying performance degradation and will provide early indication of potential maintenance requirements, allowing customers to move to a predictive and proactive approach.
