Monitoring of Centrifugal Pumps using the "PumpMon" Function Block in SIMATIC PCS 7

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)
Objective of the Application is performance monitoring and diagnostics of centrifugal pumps in the context of SIMATIC PCS 7 plant asset management.

A low-cost solution can be achieved by intelligent combination and logical interpretation of measured process values which are (mostly) already available in the DCS, in contrast to high-end condition monitoring systems based on dedicated additional sensors, e.g. vibration sensors or structure-borne sound sensors.

Main contents
The following main points are discussed in this application note:

  • How to implement and configure the pump monitoring
  • How to parameterize and commission the pump monitoring
  • How to evaluate the pump monitoring results in the context of plant asset management
  • Application example based on the PCS 7 solution template "PumpUnit".

Validity
The PumpMon function block is available since PCS 7 V6.1.
The PumpMon function block is part of the Condition Monitoring Library since PCS 7 V8.0.
