Chesterton has released a new IoT sensor to help industrial teams increase uptime of rotating equipment.
The 24/7 equipment monitoring sensor – Chesterton Connect – allows users to safely monitor changes in equipment vibration and surface temperature, as well as process pressure and temperature.
“Chesterton Connect automatically stays on top of equipment changes that pose a problem,” said product director of Chesterton mechanical seals product line, Steve Bullen.
“It gives pump operators time to make the necessary adjustments, helping to avoid costly unplanned downtime.”
The sensor uses Bluetooth and is supported by a mobile app, which can track multiple sensors and provide a comprehensive view of a plant’s equipment health, which can be exported for analysis.
Chesterton Connect be used on rotating equipment such as pumps, mixers, gear boxes, motors and fans.
