Pumps

Predicting Pump failures automatically

Pumps are categorized as one of the most critical asset types in most industries. When pumps are malfunctioning, it can cause expensive breakdowns while decreasing reliability in a production.

Unplanned downtime due to pump failures are costly, but it does not necessarily need to happen, as real time monitoring connects your pump the cloud for you to get an overview.

The challenge is then: Do you understand what the data in the cloud means?

Hexastates PREDICT software estimates the health of your pump and shows you possible causes for why your pump is not running at an optimal state.

Our AI-powered PREDICT software automatically look for following fault types in Pumps

In the animation below, we show what possible fault types the Hexastate PREDICT platform can show you, as a user of the software. A standard centrifugal pump consists of a pump combined with an electric motor. In the pump we can uncover the following causes for machine breakdown, which will show in the Hexastate PREDICT fault trend detection module:
