The City of Houston has selected planning, engineering and program management firm Lockwood, Andrews & Newnam Inc. (LAN) to develop...
Flowserve Corp., a global provider of fluid motion and control products and services, has chosen ACEHMA 2006 to introduce IPS Tempo, a pre-engineered intelligent pump optimization, control and protection system. Designed by the rotating equipment experts at Flowserve, IPS Tempo improves performance, lowers total cost of ownership, reduces power consumption up to 50% and improves Mean Time Between Repair (MTBR).
IPS Tempo helps eliminate costly downtime and expensive repairs caused by dry running, blocked lines, pump overloads, closed suction or discharge valves, cavitation, and excessive wear or rubbing. Users can program IPS Tempo to respond to process and condition variables to protect pump equipment against adverse operating conditions, thereby optimizing plant output and pump availability and lowering total cost of ownership.
IPS Tempo adjusts pump operations for flow, pressure, temperature, and fluid level changes. The system monitors process variables and pump power and offers extensive condition monitoring and control.
IPS Tempo incorporates variable frequency drive (VFD) technology, pump-specific optimization software, an industrial grade electric drive, and an intuitive menu-driven user interface to provide superior protection and reliability. It integrates a unique, pump-specific user interface, a quick-start setup and configuration, soft-start and soft-stop capability, and pre-engineered pump protection features into one complete and easy-to-use package.
IPS Tempo is ideal for critical pump applications as well as ones with varying system parameters, such as tank car unloading and multi-service pumps. Applicable markets include chemical, petrochemical, refining, water, mining and general industry.
Flowserve IPS Tempo will be on display at ACEHMA Hall 8 Stand H2 - J9. In addition to its pump solutions, Flowserve will present a comprehensive line of world-class fluid motion and control products and services, including seals, valves, valve automation and steam systems. ACEHMA 2006 will be held in Frankfurt, Germany May 15 to 19.
