The PumpSense sensor-based system from Prophecy Sensorlytics introduces cost-effective predictive diagnostics technology to alert pump/blower users to developing problems and prescribe timely fixes without any need for outside support, expertise or data analysis. Designed for integration by pump manufacturers, PumpSense generates easy-to-understand graphics and text-based actionable maintenance advice before issues can escalate, the company says. The system is said to virtually eliminate untimely reactive maintenance attention, unplanned production downtime and rushed service parts.

The system suits pump/blower applications across industries including agriculture, electronics, environmental, food and beverage, medical, mining, paper and printing, pharmaceuticals, plastics, and textiles, among others.

PumpSense sensors are attached to a pump or blower housing at the factory. When the system is delivered and online with the end user, the sensors automatically and continuously monitor and measure filter status, oil status, pump utilization, and vacuum or pressure level trends in real time. Analytic software collects the sensor data, compares the data against predetermined baselines and pushes the data into an easy to understand dashboard displaying machine, component or condition information. The system then delivers meaningful maintenance recommendations, based on the actionable intelligence, heading off potential problems that otherwise could impact productivity and profitability.

An easy-to-navigate mobile app enables end users to graphically view conditions by showing green, yellow or red backgrounds. If a pump or component reaches a yellow warning level, then the actionable maintenance advice for the fix is delivered to assigned technicians via email or text message.
