Technological innovations and digitization are making energy-producing assets more efficient, resilient and sustainable
At Flowserve, we’ve bolstered more than 200 years of expertise in flow control systems and solutions with digital offerings engineered to use data and science to monitor, diagnose and correct issues.
With the latest advances in the field of predictive maintenance, operators now have a clearer picture of what matters, while leveraging monitoring and analytics across all operations globally — often without human intervention.
Monitoring devices connect to your plant assets, enabling you to collect data, store it, and then use it to automate otherwise manual tasks. Then, analytics interpret the collected data to identify performance patterns and trends that lead to predictive maintenance.
RedRaven is Flowserve’s predictive maintenance platform that gives you the insights and tools needed to monitor, analyze and predict equipment performance. This means you can respond to problems quickly and protect your plant from equipment failures, downtime and costly repairs. RedRaven tracks the health and performance of assets on-site with wired and wireless sensor networks.
The Platform enables you to develop operational improvements, predict equipment failures, evaluate equipment life, and plan equipment repairs. The cloud architecture is easy to use with existing infrastructure and can work with multiple platforms.
Paired with the help and expertise of the Flowserve Monitoring Center (FMC), we can interact with your sensors remotely, dynamically obtain more information when needed, analyze your asset performance, and provide reports and recommendations.
With digitization, Flowserve improves how you monitor, diagnose, predict, correct and/or avoid potential issues with the latest in digital networking capabilities.Read our blog article

A shift to predictive maintenance for UK water utility provider
A water utility provider embraced digitizing to enhance equipment reliability and maintenance practices. RedRaven, Flowserve's predictive maintenance service, met their need for efficiency and proactive maintenance. They implemented a Condition-based Monitoring (CBM) pilot program and further expanded to monitoring up to 900 assets over a 5-year period.
RedRaven's insights transformed their maintenance culture, saving time and improving efficiency. The service provided timely alerts, enabling investigation and analysis of potential issues with the water utility valuing the 24/7 support from Flowserve Monitoring Center (FMC) and the detailed dashboard.
Digitizing one of the largest water desalination plans in Oman
A public water provider in the Middle East was relying on conventional site-based monitoring with vibration alarms from predetermined trip values. Without any root cause analysis or indicators, maintenance teams had to respond to alarms by visiting stations, often dismantling pumps for manual diagnosis. Flowserve installed RedRaven predictive analytics sensors on 17 pumps. In addition to pump vibration, RedRaven would also monitor water temperature, pressure, and flow. This solution resulted in increased operational resilience for the water supplier, streamlined maintenance protocols, and reduced costs.
Monitoring hundreds of assets that supply the U.K. with clean water
A large U.K. water utility selected Flowserve to provide digital condition monitoring services for hundreds of assets across multiple facilities for three to five years. Flowserve was also selected as a preferred pump provider. The water utility will implement RedRaven from Flowserve, a connected platform that enables customers to track flow control equipment performance and predict maintenance needs. The utility will get the insights they need to make more informed decisions to avoid unplanned downtime, improve plant efficiency, productivity and the bottom line. Through digitization solutions for our customers, we are helping to make the world better for everyone.
Expanding predictive maintenance at U.S. power plants
Three nuclear plants and a combined cycle power station in the United States have renewed monitoring contracts with Flowserve and will expand the number of assets monitored during production of clean energy. One facility is also upgrading to the latest LoRa-based wireless technology. The plant operators rely on RedRaven from Flowserve, a connected predictive maintenance solution that enables you to understand asset conditions and schedule needed maintenance and repairs before equipment failures occur. By digitizing the customer experience, you can avoid unplanned downtime, reduce costs, and improve performance.
