An Overview of the PumpSmart Variable Frequency Drive

PumpSmart pump control systems provide real-time control and protection of your pumps while also providing valuable process insight. By protecting against unplanned pump failure due to process upsets, we can keep your process running longer and eliminate unplanned repair activities. By Right-Sizing your pumps to your system, PumpSmart can reduce not only your energy consumption, but the wear and tear on your process system.

Integrated Process Control
PumpSmart offers automatic pump control by integrating the pump controller in the drive. No external controller is required, making PumpSmart a simple and cost-effective solution for your basic pumping needs. PumpSmart process control features; single pump or multipump applications, advance pressure control, cavitation control and PID Smart Flow.

Standard PumpSmart systems come equipped with advanced process control features that help optimize your pumping system for maximum uptime, reliability and energy savings. PumpSmart is pump-specific and was developed to protect the pump and optimize pump control. The systems can be applied to any manufacturer’s centrifugal or positive displacement pump.

How PumpSmart Works: A Video Overview Series

Introduction Overview
Overview of PumpSmart’s ability to improve pump reliability and decrease energy costs.

Defines how PumpSmart is able to derive pump flow for any centrifugal pump without the use of sensors.

Pump Protection
Defines how PumpSmart is able to protect centrifugal pumps from minimum flow, deadhead and run-out flow conditions.

Multi-Pump Systems
Defines how PumpSmart is able to manage the operation of multiple pumps and balance the flow of each to avoid common reliability problems.

Cavitation Control
Monitors the suction conditions of your pump to protect against cavitation. Cavitation Control improves overall pump reliability in low NPSH services that routinely cause pump failure.
