Pump Health Monitoring
Pump Health Monitoring for Improved Safety
and Operations
•Wireless instrumentation easily and cost-effectively
enhances visibility into the health of pumps and
attendant equipment
•Trending pump and motor vibration enables operators to
switch to spare pump in a controlled manner, avoiding
pump seal failure which can cause environmental and
safety incidents
There are literally hundreds of process pumps in a refinery operating
on a continuous basis. From pumping the crude oil into the refinery to
pumping the various crude fractions throughout the process units and
ultimately pumping the refined products to storage, pumps keep the
refinery running. Even though most process pumps are installed with
in-line spares, sudden pump failure typically results in process upsets
due to the time it takes to get the spare pump up and running. In some
cases pump seal failure can result in hazardous material releases and a
fire. Many technician hours are consumed with manual monitoring rounds.
Adding instrumentation to regularly monitor the process pumps is
now economical and easy to implement. By monitoring and trending
the pump and motor vibration, operators have a better view to pump
health and can reduce the wear on pump mechanical seals due to
increasing vibration by switching to the spare pump in a controlled
manner. In addition to monitoring vibration, the pump suction strainer
differential pressure, pump discharge pressure, pump and motor
temperatures, and pump auxiliary seal flush system alarms can be
monitored using Emerson’s Smart Wireless solutions. Continuous
measurements enable technicians to target known problems.
Emerson Smart Wireless instrumentation easily and cost-effectively
enhances visibility into the health of rotating and attendant equipment
to enable improved utilization and product quality. Trending pump
and motor vibration enables operators to switch to spare pump in a
controlled manner, thereby reducing wear on pump mechanical seals
to ensure improved production and lower maintenance costs.
Additionally, wireless technologies can prevent pump seal failure and
avoid environmental and safety excursions.
