Centrifugal Pumps.

Centrifugal pumps are commonly used for pumping water, solvents, organics, oils, acids, bases and any low viscosity liquids in both industrial, agricultural and domestic applications.

It is the most common design of pump in use, accounting for over two thirds of pumping applications, and consists of a pump head containing the main working elements of a shaft and impeller, which rotate to produce flow and pressure when driven by a motor.

Typical MTTR of a pump is between 4-6 hours, at a downtime cost @ £3,000/hour.
Replacement pump unit cost: £3,000 each.
Total potential loss: £9,000 from one failure event

Indicative Costs & Payback

70% ROI Payback within seven months.

Year 1 cost - £2,800

Annual Monitoring Cost - £1600*

Hardware costs - £200

Commissioning - £1,000

* This represents the pump's share of the monthly ongoing service cost of £995, which includes 100 parameters.


Required hardware will depend on source of consumption data and variables monitored:

  • Energy meter—if no process control data available
  • Vibration sensors - optional extra


Our specialists configure the system and run end-to-end testing prior to go-live.

Monitoring Cost
