A.W. Chesterton Company has released the Chesterton Connect Cloud, a web-based dashboard and analytics platform for viewing and analysing data collected from Chesterton Connect equipment monitoring sensors.

The Chesterton Connect Cloud provides 24/7 access to process and operating conditions of pumps or other equipment being monitored to recognise and solve issues before emergencies occur. Wherever they are, operators can view overall performance, explore variances and trends, add notes, and focus maintenance efforts where needed most.                                                

The analytics dashboard enables teams to track all rotating equipment conditions in real-time and take corrective action. They can also overlay and compare measurements for up to three sensors, find events and add notes to specific actions and view vibration trends through a colour-coded analysis for vibration velocity as well as acceleration.

Juan Cid, Chesterton Connect product manager, said that the Chesterton Connect Cloud is helping customers to both identify issues within their pumps such as vibration or temperature and see how valves and other supporting components are affecting the fluid flow and impacting overall pump performance and seal reliability.
