To reduce costs and maximize performance, you want your operations up and running with minimal disruption. And while Flowserve is there when you need a fast and efficient repair, our goal is to prevent equipment failures and system disruptions before they occur. Our wireless systems and software allow us to detect even the smallest of changes in operating conditions that may be an early indicator of failure.
At Flowserve, we are committed to developing information technology platforms, sensor-based solutions and technical resources to streamline the collection, storage, interpretation and use of essential plant and equipment data. Flowserve is truly unique in that we are not only a supplier of pump and valve OEM equipment, critical system components like seals, and seal systems, wireless infrastructure to gather and diagnose critical operating conditions, but also that we maintain a broad global manufacturing and service center infrastructure needed to help our customers take action.
We can not only help our customers “detect and diagnose,” but also “fix and optimize.” We have deep domain knowledge built over 200 years as a major equipment supplier to the industry. We know in detail how to optimize the performance of flow equipment, and how to ensure it is operating safely, reliably, and at peak performance.
Flowserve experts utilize your existing data systems and proprietary software to collect data in a comprehensive view, and then organize actionable information using easy-to-understand graphical interfaces. While valuable on its own, this data provides significant business impacts once our experts turn it into insights you can use to proactively prevent failures and disruptions.

The Flowserve Condition Data Point Monitoring program expands data point collection from typical vibration analysis to include other factors that can lead to premature failure. All data collected can be analyzed and trended using the best technology available. Changes in the trends indicate possible failure or a situation that, if not corrected, could lead to failure and expensive downtime.
Flowserve IPS APEX is the industry’s most sophisticated tool for data acquisition, intelligent control, condition monitoring and diagnostics – all packaged into a single solution. IPS APEX is equipped with advanced diagnostic algorithms specifically developed for process systems, high-speed data acquisition of dynamic sensor signals, and flexible options for interfacing with customer DCS, PLC or other visual alert systems.
Intelligent Performance Systems such as IPS Wireless™ can be deployed to gather analog or digital data where a wired system would not be economically feasible.
Condition Data Point Monitoring: Flowserve offers Condition Data Point Monitoring (CDPM), a proactive, predictive monitoring program that tracks machine condition over time to reveal long-term trends and prevent conditions that jeopardize plant productivity and profitability.
Advanced Vibration Measurements and Diagnostics: Flowserve has developed numerous field data acquisition and analysis tools to rapidly and accurately determine causes of equipment issues related to vibration and pressure pulsation.
Special Field Performance Test Tools: Flowserve engineers use proprietary technologies and methods to determine hydraulic and thermodynamic equipment performance to troubleshoot system issues and optimize performance.
