Yokogawa Has Innovative Approach to Detect Pump Cavitation

Jan. 20, 2020

Cavitation is a common cause of mechanical failure in liquid processes using pumps and valves. Existing cavitation detection systems monitor pumps and piping for abnormal sounds and vibrations. Cavitation may already be serious when the system detects abnormality of the piping. However, Yokogawa's detection system can detect cavitation in the pump more quickly and accurately by directly measuring weak pressure fluctuations caused by bubble collapse and collecting that information via FOUNDATION Fieldbus communication. Since the system detects cavitation at early stage before equipment’s damage, users can properly maintain equipment according to actual conditions, reduce maintenance costs, and improve operational efficiency.
