Pumps and fans performance monitoring

The Valmet DNA Pumps and Fans Monitoring application calculates, stores and displays the main performance parameters that indicate the condition and operating efficiency of pumps and fans. The storing of history values enables long-term reporting and trending of performance parameters and thus helps to detect gradual changes in component performance.

Features

  • The Pumps and Fans Performance Monitoring application includes calculation of the most important performance parameters of pumps and fans, such as head, specific consumption and efficiency.

Benefits

  • The Pumps and Fans Performance Monitoring provides the power plant maintenance and operating personnel with a tool that helps to detect potential problems in the pump and fan operation and analyze problems that have occurred. This contributes towards proactive responding to failures before they cause unpredicted shutdowns.
  • The extensive storage of history data also enables long- term monitoring of gradual component deterioration and mechanical failures and thus improves scheduling of maintenance. The comparison of the actual operating point with the expected one provides valuable information on the condition of the pump or the fan in real time.
  • The Pumps and Fans Performance Monitoring application is linked seamlessly to the overall automation applications, which guarantees efficient collaboration between plant management and plant control.
