Griswold™ SafeGuard™ Predictive Maintenance Solution Improves Technology in Pump Diagnostics

DOWNERS GROVE, Ill., Jan. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Griswold™, part of PSG® and Dover (NYSE: DOV) and a premier manufacturer of centrifugal pumps, is pleased to introduce a new innovation for the centrifugal pump industry, SafeGuard™, an industry-leading predictive maintenance solution. Featuring wireless access and 24/7 proactive alerts, SafeGuard technology alerts the user when a problem occurs, and also provides actionable guidance to resolve it. 

Current diagnostic technologies often provide only warning signals and are only designed to monitor the health of the pump and ignore the health issues associated with the motor. The SafeGuard solution provides answers to all of these critical needs.

The SafeGuard Preventative Maintenance Solution allows both the pump and the motor to be remotely monitored 24/7 with continuous cloud connectivity, delivering the true value of Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT). If an issue occurs, a proactive alert is automatically generated, including clear actionable guidance that can be easily followed by maintenance personnel to resolve the root cause of the issue. This proactive approach to pump monitoring can help lower maintenance costs by up to 30% and result in up to 75% fewer breakdowns.
