PPI-GNL-PMP-PRF: Pump Condition Monitor

PI Vision Displays are Standard

Pump head and efficiency are calculated and plotted against the expected curves respectively.  Reference curves are scalable, dynamic, and adjust with pump 

speed as appropriate.  Real time calculations include driver/pump set efficiency, pump efficiency, performance factor, suction head, NPSH, discharge head, and total head.  The graphic is very useful in visualizing real time pump performance in comparison to the reference curves.  This tool makes it easy to identify problems early, such as degradation in performance.

PPI-GNL-CTR-PRF: Cooling Tower Condition Monitor

image14

Provides real-time expected cooling tower outlet temperature based upon wet bulb temperature and range (circ-water temperature rise).  The Process Plugins™ toolset provides the calculation of wet bulb temperature from humidity or dew-point as necessary.  This information can be useful in determining problems with cooling tower operation or physical condition.  Curves are customized upon installation and can be easily adjusted anytime afterward. Expected values calculations require the availability of appropriate curves (from the manufacturer or actual historical data).
