How Can You Benefit From KirloSmart Technology For Your Pumps?

KirloSmart is a unique Internet-of-Things (IoT) based software technology that enables users to monitor their pumps remotely from smart devices such as laptops, tablets and mobile phones. No matter where your pumps are located, you can monitor their health and operational behaviour from the comfort of your own location, on a screen. 

The key indicators of a pump’s operating performance are electrical parameters, flow, pressure, temperature and vibration. If the parameter defined range of either is too high, it will indicate that you need to adjust them. With KirloSmart, you have at your fingertips an automated system that is simple, easy to access, and allows you to monitor the pump conditions constantly. 

Here are the pump parameters that the KirloSmart software is capable of monitoring remotely:

  • Pressure
  • Flow
  • Power
  • Voltage
  • Current
  • Frequency
  • Pump and Motor Bearing Temperature
  • Pump and Motor Bearing Vibrations
  • Motor winding temperature
  • Pump run hours 
  • Power factor

With KirloSmart, you can take the route of implementing smart pumps in your facility. An automated system to monitor the pump conditions should ideally increase energy efficiency, minimise downtime and enhance overall operation. Enabling these modern pumps through the KirloSmart technology can offer users a plethora of benefits. Let’s take a look at what these are.

Flexibility: Of course, the ability to monitor the pumps from anywhere opens up a world of possibilities, and allows you to be flexible with regards to your own location.

Reduced operational cost: The cost of both repair and labour can be cut down significantly.

Reduced unplanned breakdown: Since the pump health conditions are monitored constantly, it becomes easier to cut down the number of times that an unplanned breakdown occurs. 

Improved plant and process efficiency: The state of a plant is easier to manage and maintain, and workflows are made even more efficient with the use of IoT pumps. 

Optimized safety and reliability: Remotely monitoring pumps makes the whole process more reliable and safer.

Longer lifespan of equipment: With KirloSmart technology, all the equipment that you use in your plant will gain a longer shelf life through less wear and tear. 

Improved equipment efficiency: All the equipment used in the process will become even more efficient through automation.

Reduced downtime: With labour being conserved and the entire monitoring system automated, equipment downtime can be reduced.

Reduced cost of assets: The cost of items like modems, servers and computers will further be saved.

So, for effective remote management of your pumps, KirloSmart is the smart solution. What’s more, KirloSmart can be deployed for any type and make of pump! The solution was developed indigenously and can cater to customer requirements across segments.

Using IoT and Analytics to Revolutionize Pump Monitoring

The Internet of Things (IoT) and Analytics are transforming every sector of the economy! There is absolutely no reason why pumping should remain untouched by these disruptive technologies. Any device that generates data about its performance parameters can be made a part of an IoT network. This ensures its optimum performance, highlights maintenance needs and predicts breakdowns for timely action. In this blog, we take you through the inner workings of how IoT and Analytics are revolutionizing your pump monitoring.

As your smart pumps function, they continuously generate a stream of data about variables such as flow, viscosity, vibration, power and temperature. The purpose of IoT and Analytics is to tap this continuous flow of data and ensure better vigilance and monitoring. Modern pumps require a seamless convergence of three key technologies:

  1. IoT: This includes the sensors and network infrastructure for connecting the smart pumps and conveying the data stream of the variables. Technologies like WiFi, LoRaWAN and NB-IoT are used to communicate the real-time data captured by the sensors. These networks are suited for large industrial establishments as they offer a wide range of up to 1 kilometre. The IoT setup also includes data management and retention tools offered by major cloud infrastructure companies. 
  2. Digital Twins: This refers to a virtual representation or simulation of the smart pump along with all its real-time variables. It is a model of the IoT pumps loaded with specific information such as brand, size and location. Data related to vibration, power, temperature and flow is clearly visible through the Digital Twin. You can also set limits on these parameters, which if breached, indicates the need for intervention. Digital Twin precludes the need for any physical monitoring of the pump as the model with accurate real-time data can be viewed anytime and from anywhere.
  3. Data Analytics and Machine Learning: These include the tools to keep track of the steady processes and detect anomalies for intervention. Tools like charts, graphs, time-series and trend analysis are used to gain an insight about the performance of the pump over a longer time-horizon. This information provides a multi-dimensional view of your pumps as it factors in the various parameters and their interaction with each other.

To make the best use of IoT and Analytics, an interactive user interface is a must. KirloSmart is a state-of-the-art software technology that allows users to analyse their pump metrics remotely through a web portal or mobile app. KirloSmart is capable of generating alerts for probable causes leading to breakdown or pump failure, thus keeping you up-to-date on the health of your smart pump. The greatest benefits of IoT and Analytics include scalable throughput and productivity, reduced energy consumption, controlled maintenance costs, reduced manual intervention and continuous improvement. This has made pumping convenient, reliable and sustainable. For more information on our products, feel free to contact us on +91 98199 07445.
