Griswold™ Introduces SafeGuard™

07 December 2018

Griswold, is pleased to introduce a new innovation predictive maintenance solution for the centrifugal pump industry, SafeGuard™. Featuring wireless access and 24/7 proactive alerts, SafeGuard technology alerts the user when a problem occurs, and also provides actionable guidance to resolve it. 

The SafeGuard Preventative Maintenance Solution allows both the pump and the motor to be remotely monitored 24/7 with continuous cloud connectivity. If an issue occurs, a proactive alert is automatically generated, including clear actionable guidance that can be easily followed by maintenance personnel to resolve the root cause of the issue. This proactive approach to pump monitoring can help lower maintenance costs by up to 30% and result in up to 75% fewer breakdowns.

SafeGuard is designed to monitor all types of centrifugal pumps. Four battery-powered sensors are included in the SafeGuard system as well as a node/sensor reader. All four sensors work in unison to predict the full health of both the pump and the motor. This allows for a complete diagnostic analysis that reads the tri-axial vibration, temperature, and electromagnetic values for the pump and motor. 

With these capabilities, SafeGuard is able to detect more than 20 failure modes.
