Maintenance people know, it's a heck of a lot cheaper to make repairs on pumps when you can schedule them, versus when they come up unexpectedly. Advanced condition monitoring technology like then i-ALERT2 is helping them plan for potential failures, and uncover the root cause of those failures.
The i-ALERT2 is a condition monitoring tool used on Goulds pumps to alert you of upset conditions. The way it functions is actually pretty simple. When the vibration and temperature conditions are good, it flashes green. When they're not, it flashes red. If the light is flashing red, you know there's a problem.
But what happens when process conditions change overnight? You might not have been there to witness the pump being completely deadheaded, or starved to where it doesn't meet minimum flow requirements. What if the critical pump you need to monitor is extremely hard to get to, or even underground?
That's where the new ITT i-ALERT2 comes in handy. This little blue box is completely changing the way maintenance departs ward off potential failures. It makes maintenance rounds incredibly easy by monitoring the live health conditions for all of your pumps.
The i-ALERT2 captures data 24/7 to give you a complete picture of what's going on with your pump at all times, rather than just putting your hand on the pump once per week. It uses Bluetooth technology to connect to your iPhone or iPad, and shows the health of your pump at a glance. Just download their app so you can pinpoint exactly when upset conditions occurred, so you can find out what might have caused it
Instead of being at the mercy of the pump, waiting for it to start making noise, or worse yet, have a catastrophic failure, today's maintenance personnel are being proactive. They are automatically monitoring operating conditions around-the-clock and receiving alerts when vibration and temperature have exceeded what is safe for the pump.
With the i-ALERT2, they're able to plan ahead, instead of scrambling to fix unplanned failures. They have more knowledge at their fingertips to pinpoint the problem, and a greater understanding of how to prevent those problem from occurring again.
