Chesterton, a leader in equipment sealing and reliability, has released its next IoT innovation – an easy-to-install sensor and app that helps industrial teams increase uptime of rotating equipment.
Chesterton Connect™ is a 24/7 equipment monitoring sensor that enables users to safely and conveniently monitor changes in equipment vibration, equipment surface temperature, process pressure, and process temperature.
The sensor communicates with a mobile application via Bluetooth. The app supports multiple sensors to provide a comprehensive view of a plant’s equipment health and the app alerts the user when equipment operating limits are exceeded.
The collected data can be exported for analysis to help the user understand the equipment’s operation and take preventative actions to extend mean time between removal (MTBR).
Steve Bullen, Product Director of Chesterton Mechanical Seals product line, said, “Chesterton Connect automatically stays on top of equipment changes that pose a problem.
“It gives pump operators time to make the necessary adjustments, helping to avoid costly unplanned downtime.”
Chesterton Connect can be used on any rotating equipment such as pumps, mixers, gear boxes, motors, and fans.
