Thermal Fluid Pump Protection System
PumpGuard thermal fluid pump protection system provides localized fire suppression and monitoring for thermal fluid pumps to protect your equipment, process, and people.
The most common cause of fire in thermal fluid systems is the degradation and failure of mechanical seals in thermal fluid pumps.
What would a plant fire cost you?
Personnel injury or death
Capital equipment loss
Extensive foam cleanup
Our PumpGuard fluid pump safety system adds layers of protection to reduce the risk of thermal fluid pump fires!
PumpGuard+ Pump Safety Systems
Wechsler Technologies' PumpGuard+ Fire Suppression System includes all of the features of the base PumpGuard package PLUS dual-zone fire suppression to both the mechanical seal AND the pump volute housing, providing total protection of the entire pump area.
Three Layers of Pump Protection
Forced air cooling to prolong seal life
Dual guard housing (patent pending) directs fluid pump motor cooling air across the pump’s mechanical seal, reducing the seal’s operating temperature and prolonging its.
Preventive monitoring to predict possible failure
Monitor key indicators of thermal fluid pump health including seal temperature, vibration, and leak detection, to detect early signs of oil pump failure before a fire occurs.
Active local fire suppression for ultimate protection
Foam fire suppressant delivered via spray nozzle directly to the source of the fire - the pump, minimizing affected areas and required cleanup.
PumpGuard Thermal Oil Fire Suppression System Components
1. PumpGuard Base System
Complete, pre-engineered package including the dual guard housing for forced air cooling and fire containment, fire-sensing temperature switch, and active, localized fire suppression
2. PumpGuard +
Dual-zone fire suppression coverage to both the mechanical seal AND the volute housing, providing total protection of the entire pump area
3. Seal Protection Package
Monitor seal temperature and vibration to ensure pump health
4. Leak Detection System
Detect leaks due to seal wear and shutdown the pump on catastrophic failure
5. Multi-Point Monitoring System
Monitor all of the inputs from each PumpGuard System at a central HMI and transmit the inputs to the main PLC through a communications network
How Wechlser Technologies Prevents Thermal Oil Fires
The video here provides a more detailed look at our PumpGuard systems, showcasing how they help prevent oil pump fires from occurring, and suppress fires when part failures occur.
PumpGuard Safety Features
No other thermal oil pump protection system provides the level of coverage of benefits PumpGuard does. PumpGuard thermal oil pump safety system provides benefits including:
Active forced air cooling at the mechanical seal
Early Failure Monitoring
Leak, temperature, and vibration monitoring
Failure Source Detection
Early leak detection at seal pump
Targeted Fire Suppression
Fire suppression directed at pump seals
Faster recovery and cleanup in the case of part failure or fire incident
