Protective Instrumentation

Protective instrumentation of some type is normally employed in pump or motor installation. (Note that the information provided in this section applies to the centrifugal pump as well as to many other types of pumps.) Protective instrumentation for centrifugal pumps (or most other types of pumps) is dependent on pump size, application, and the amount of operator supervision; that is, pumps under 500 hp often only come with pressure gauges and temperature indicators. These gauges or transducers may be mounted locally (on the pump itself) or remotely (in suction and discharge lines immediately upstream and downstream of the suction and discharge nozzles). If transducers are employed, readings are typically displayed and taken (or automatically recorded) at a remote operating panel or control center.
