Industrial pump users have relied on route-based data collection methods for decades. These methods are susceptible to gaps – such as insufficient frequency of data collection- that contribute to premature failure of equipment, added maintenance costs, and greater manpower requirements. The act of manually collecting readings increases worker exposure to hazardous environments, adding safety risk that could be prevented.
Centaur provides a remote monitoring solution that combines monitoring hardware with Hydro’s cloud-based Enterprise Predictive Maintenance (EPM) software and dedicated support engineers. This solution allows end users to access information remotely, quickly assess the real-time status of equipment condition, and employ advanced tools for a deeper diagnosis. The Centaur engineering team supports end users by providing monitoring oversight, monthly health reports, and advanced analytical support.
Upgrading to a cloud-based, digital solution provides the groundwork to increase asset reliability and supports achieving the lowest total cost of equipment ownership.
As an unbiased presence in the aftermarket for over 50 years, Hydro has amassed critical experience over a broad spectrum of manufacturers, designs, and applications. This cross-OEM experience is leveraged when making diagnoses and recommending remedial actions.
In contrast to traditional IOT companies, Centaur was designed by and is supported by experts in the machinery being monitored. Hydro’s rotating equipment expertise has influenced the design of both the hardware and software to ensure that they are capable of effectively detecting and identifying known failure modes.
