Armstrong Fluid Technology has announced the availability of a new capability on Pump Manager, an Active Performance Management Service™, that can detect and alert building managers about impending pump cavitation. Effective immediately, Design Envelope pumps will have the capability to detect cavitation and deliver an alert to a previously established contact.
Pump Manager is a cloud-based subscription service that enables Active Performance Management in Armstrong intelligent Design Envelope pumps. It proactively tracks and manages pump performance and provides early diagnostic warnings, web accessible trends, and analysis along with automated reports. Pump Manager helps customers make informed decisions and take immediate action to deliver the best possible HVAC performance.
Cavitation is a serious issue that affects pumps in many applications. The ability of Design Envelope pumps to detect cavitation and provide an alert will limit the energy losses and equipment damage the pump cavitation can cause.
Commenting on the new capability, Pratik Sharma, Global Director, Building Services & Performance Management, stated “Our ability to detect and report cavitation is an important advancement that will help customers all over the world with what is a very common and costly problem in fluid flow systems.”
The new feature that detects pump cavitation is now standard on all Armstrong Design Envelope pumps.
