Pumps and their digital life cycle logs are connected via QR codes.

Digital life cycle logs:

Although they may look similar from the outside, pumps can differ from one another hugely in terms of their hydraulic design. We therefore use digital life cycle logs to document the data of each individual pump. These include type series specification and production history, equipment, maintenance information and inspection or test reports. The log is quickly accessible to our on-site technical staff. It helps with maintenance measures and supports process analysis and optimisation during operation. In the long term, this can be considered a bridging technology. As our pumps remain in operation for years and often decades, it will be some time before all of our active pump sets are “smart”. Until this point, QR codes or chips will connect older pump models with their digital logs.

“The digital life cycle log gives me on-site access to everything I need to know about the pump in front of me. This means I can see far more quickly where main­ten­ance is needed or opti­mi­sa­tion possible.” Markus Nowak

Digitalisation helps us provide efficient service and develop new maintenance models which specifically target the needs of our customers. The digital life cycle log reduces the documentation workload for system operators and service engineers.
