Pump with integrated intelligence

Pump with integrated intelligence

Concertor from Flygt, a Xylem Brand

Cleaning out biosolids, sand, grease and other debris from a sump tank is often an unpleasant and costly task. While many pumps are equipped with the latest technology to solve these challenges, the Concertor from Flygt, a Xylem Brand expands on the idea of trouble-free pumping to rectify the problem.

This is enabled by a combination of technology and intelligent functionalities to keep a wet well clean and pump clog-free at all times. To reduce sedimentation, odor build-up and unplanned call-outs, designers added built-in sump and pipe cleaning functions in a single integrated wastewater pumping system. The company’s trials show that this minimizes unplanned and costly maintenance. An integrated pump cleaning function, together with Adaptive N-technology, detects and resolves clogging from large debris. The pump provides self-monitoring functionality that prevents overheating and motor failures due to external conditions. The motor technology and Energy Minimizer increase the lifetime of the motors, seals and bearings. Finally, the control system inside the pump is placed in a stable environment, which protects it from unfavorable external conditions.

This works because the intelligent unit is capable of sensing the environment it is operating in, as well as the load it is subjected to, adjusting its performance in real time to meet optimization targets. By collecting and analyzing relevant data, the pump system can make smart decisions about how it operates and what relevant feedback to give you. This integrated intelligence is enabled by its Dirigo platform that consists of a motor, control electronics and software. Dirigo is designed to deliver significant cost savings, a more precise level of motor control, reduced risk of clogging, substantial energy savings, and comprehensive data reporting. Thanks to the scalable nature of the system, the operator can add new functionality without having to throw away your initial investment. 

This wastewater pumping system is capable of sensing the operating conditions of its environment, adapting its performance in real time and providing feedback to pumping station operators, according to the manufacturer. The control system automatically adapts to the changing pumping environment, delivering the optimal level of performance at a low cost of ownership. The built-in intelligence also makes it easier to set up and operate, as well as allowing for a significantly smaller footprint. It combines a fully integrated control system with IE4 motor efficiency, the state-of-the-art N-hydraulic and intelligent functionalities.
