The patented SCT AutoAdjust technology in combination with SEEPEX digital solutions enables remote adjustment to maintain pump performance at the optimal operating point without onsite manual intervention.
SCT AutoAdjust is the next evolutionary step of smart conveying technology (SCT), an ease-of-maintenance design launched more than 10 years ago to simplify and speed up maintenance, removing the need for dismantling the suction or discharge pipework. The design of SCT AutoAdjust maintains the same design features of SCT while incorporating hydraulic controls to restore and maintain pump performance.
The integration of SEEPEX digital solutions with SCT AutoAdjust enables such adjustment to be made remotely from the pump, through the SEEPEX Pump Monitor and SEEPEX Connected Services. This reduces the need for onsite manual intervention and time-consuming trips to pumps installed in remote, inaccessible locations or large complex sites.
Without the need for special tools or replacement of components, SCT AutoAdjust enables the pump’s efficiency to be restored remotely and adapt to changes in process conditions. This translates into improved uptime, longer service life of components, reduced need for spare parts and lower life-cycle costs.
SEEPEX said its digital solutions, incorporating the SEEPEX Pump Monitor and Connected Services, enable predictive and forward-planned maintenance to increase resilience, process and asset uptime, and facilitate on-time spare parts availability.
The company said the pump monitor transforms the progressive cavity pump into an intelligent field device that constantly monitors the status and performance, and immediately reports deviations to the user.
SCT AutoAdjust offers the ability to maintain both pump performance and efficiency remotely. The predictive and forward planned maintenance afforded by monitoring and advanced analytics increases uptime and spare parts availability. SEEPEX said maintenance becomes easy and unplanned downtime is reduced.
