Early failure detection from HOMA monitoring system

The HOMA VICON monitoring system detects vibrations with a digital acceleration sensor inside the pump and processes data and frequency spectra, which assign specific kinds of vibrations to corresponding mechanical failures. HOMA VICON can separate vibrations into those generated by the impeller or pump hydraulic, impeller damages, clogging or inappropriate operation conditions, shaft bearing damages and vibrations caused by the overall pump system, including valves and pipework.

HOMA VICON components are a sensor, database and processor unit, which is integrated in the pump motor for processing and saving various vibration diagnosis data and frequency spectra. The Diagnosis module displays the actual data and time series in tables and graphs. The Diagnosis module is optionally available with an additional SD Memory Card for data documentation and statistical evaluation.
