ITT Goulds (Seneca Falls, NY) announces its Model 3196 process pump, which now features patented onboard pump intelligence. The 3196 has a stainless steel condition monitor, which is placed securely atop the power end to measure critical vibration and temperature readings. Variations in temperature or vibrations exceeding preset parameters will activate an early warning system. Other features include:
- Dual stainless steel, bronze-bearing isolators for improved corrosion resistance.
- An optimized sump design to improve heat transfer and pull contaminants away from the bearings.
- Severe duty thrust bearings with greater fatigue life than standard bearings.
- A 5-year warranty as standard.
