Pump Knowledge Workshop: Wireless Condition MonitoringWednesday, October 23, 12:30 – 1:30 pmJeremy Frank, Ph.D., MBA, President, KCF Technologies, Inc.Wireless condition monitoring is an emerging technology that promises to reduce maintenance and process costs by providing continuous and predictive data. For pumps, motors and related system, continuous predictive monitoring of vibration and temperature can reduce unexpected downtime and reduce unnecessary or improper maintenance. KCF Technologies has developed low-cost and easy to use wireless sensor technology; the work originated as an effort funded by the Department of Energy Industrial Technologies Program in 2004 to improve efficiency, increase uptime and save operating costs. KCF’s product offering, SmartDiagnosticsTM has been available since 2011 as a low-cost easy-to-deploy wireless condition monitoring system, including optional energy harvesting devices for battery-free power. This presentation will include examples of successful customer installations in the markets of Pulp & Paper, Wind Power, Wastewater, Commercial Refrigeration and Commercial HVAC, including cloud-enabled installations. Future capabilities can include monitoring of pump system efficiency to monitor operations and improve efficiency.

HI has led the way for members in representing pump industry views to the DOE and energy efficiency advocates, since this initiative was first announced in January 2010. Throughout the process, HI has offered updates and briefings to its members.This meeting provides a unique opportunity to hear directly from top DOE officials involved.
