Spin Pumps are used in the manufacture of synthetic fibers and yarns. Very precise control is required to insure that the product feed rate and the fiber draw rate is matched. It is critical to monitor and protect these spin pumps because they are the heart of the system and are required to run continuously. By installing an NK Technologies’ Current Transducers, the motor current may be monitored providing the control system with key information regarding load. Variations in load may be attributable to a number of factors such as bearing failure, seal failure, suction loss etc. The measurement of load together with other process variables like pressure and flow can provide invaluable information regarding the operation of the vital spin pumps.
