A wide range of communications options are available, allowing users to integrate the Artesis system with their existing control and data acquisition or maintenance management architectures. Where facilities are spread across a wide geographic area, and may also be difficult to reach, a typical installation will combine automated alerts using email messages with centralized on-line monitoring screens.
Typical applications where you can monitor either electrical, mechanical and water pumping conditions:
Monitor centrifugal, Archimedes and screw pumps to monitor the mechanical and electrical condition as well as variations in the load in case of leakages in the waste water system pumping.
Monitor settling and sedimentation tanks motors actuating tanks’ chains and circular tanks arms. In secondary water treatment monitor compressors for aeration tanks, you can even monitor air diffusers condition. Surface aerators in aeration tank facilities can be easily monitored without need to install sensors on the motor.
Monitor your final clarifiers pumps, submersible mixers and submersible agitators without installing sensors on them. It also applies to sludge conveying vertical pumps and sludge mixers.
Monitor digestor tank mixers or sludge mixers without worrying about installing sensors. Artesis technology will monitor electrical and mechanical faults including the low speed shaft and the impeller.
Artesis technology works for solids dewatering systems: decanter or centrifugal type machines, screw presses and belt presses.
Submersible Pump Stator Winding
This case is about an accurate diagnosis of a stator winding problem for a submersible pump. The pump resides at a desalination plant which is active in the MENA region.
The peak for the pump signal at 2x line frequency (100Hz) in the frequency spectrum indicates the stator winding problem as shown in the figure.
The pump is stopped and then restarted on May 14. MCM long term trending data shows an increase in current imbalance parameters and amplitude variations in currents before and after May 14 which are some of the indications used for the diagnosis.
