ITT Goulds- PumpSmart®
How can PumpSmart® benefit your station?
PumpSmart® can protect your pump from process upset conditions, such as dry-run, dead-head, shut-off, minimum flow and run-out. With patented sensorless pump protection algorithms, PumpSmart is able to determine the operating state of your pump at any operating speed. Using a simple load monitor function on a variable speed pump application can lead to false indications of pump distress.
Combined with Smart Flow, PumpSmart is able to calculate the Flow Economy of your pump allowing you to know what the true pump system efficiency is.
Integrated PID Control
PumpSmart® includes an integrated pump controller that can automatically control the pump based on feedback from a process transmitter. Pump-specific algorithms make field setup quick and simple.
PumpSmart® is ideal for all pumps that can benefit from simple and automatic control.
Cavitation Control & Protection
PumpSmart® can monitor the suction conditions of your pump to protect against cavitation. Cavitation Control improves overall pump reliability in low NPSH services that routinely cause pump failure.
Advanced Pressure Control
Advanced Pressure Control recognizes an increase in demand and automatically increases the pressure setpoint to match the system resistance curve, maximizing flow economy.
Smart Control is able to increase and decrease pump flow by changing the pump torque rather than the pump speed. Controlling the pump torque can change a relatively flat pump performance curve into a steep, easy-to-control pump performance curve.
MultiPump Control/Control coordination between 2 to 4 pumps
PumpSmart® runs only the pumps necessary to meet the current system demand. In addition, it ensures that flow is balanced between the operating pumps using our SmartControl functionality. This means, energy consumption is greatly reduced and time between failure of the pumps and the surrounding system is vastly improved.
