Wilden introduces first AODD remote monitoring
The Wilden SafeGuard is the industry’s first air-operated double-diaphragm (AODD) pump Internet of Things (IoT) enabled remote performance monitoring and alert system.
Designed to monitor a single pump or a fleet of AODD pumps within one dedicated software system, the SafeGuard is all-inclusive pump-monitoring system which remotely tracks, records and alerts customers to key performance indicators, such as leak detection, stroke rate and total stroke count, of AODD pumps during operation.
It provides real-time alerts via SMS or email to indicate any change in operations that may be a precursor to or indicators of component failure. Wilden SafeGuard can also store maintenance records to help identify patterns which might further enhance preventative maintenance plans.
The connected Wilden SafeGuard system is composed of a single battery-powered sensor mounted directly onto the pump. This sensor collects and analyses pump-performance data in real-time and transmits it to a central gateway for encryption and transmission to the Cloud. Once stored on the Cloud, real-time and historical operational information can be accessed by the user through a secure smartphone app or online portal.
