Monitoring Pump Data
Pumps and in particular the large “main” pumps are critical assets in aquaculture systems. Continuous re-circulation of
the water 24/7/365 in fish farms ensures clean, degassed, oxygenated, and tempered water for the fish population and is essential for the welfare and the growth.
The availability of sensor-based data as well as data from the Pump VFD enables a unique feature in DESMI’s concept - calculation of aggregated parameters such as the Pump Hydraulic Efficiency and Pump “Health” (a function of vibration level and how the pump is running on the Q/H-curve).
DESMI offers an online pump monitoring concept, which facilitates continuous surveillance of all relevant sensorbased pump parameters such as:
• Pump pressure at inlet and discharge flange
• Vibration level
• Media temperature
• Motor temperature
Furthermore, the DESMI device connects to the VFD and enables monitoring of the VFD data such as:
• Motor speed
• Motor power
• kWh used per hour/day/month
• Min./max. values of above
Cloud Solution and Data Accesibility in Customer Scada System
All data can be transmitted to the DESMI cloud by LAN, WIFI, LoRaWAN, 3G/4G or whatever is available on the site.
The data, which is relevant in the daily operation of the fish farm, can be directed into the customer SCADA/Management System and can be used to monitor the efficiency and the “health” of the pumps along with other required parameters.
Online Support & Commissioning Support DESMI can provide online support, where skilled pump specialists can log-on to the cloud and assist commissioning, fault finding, and supporting our customers 24/7/365. Obviously, DESMI service technicians can also support on the site.
