The two companies agree to add fluid measurement to Honeywell's Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) solutions range
On 26 October 2016, Honeywell Process Solutions and Flowserve, the leading industrial supplier in flow management, announced that they will collaborate to provide IIoT solutions to help customers make their operations safer, more reliable and more efficient.
The collaboration will be part of the Honeywell INspireTM programme, Honeywell’s joint customer development programme for its IIoT ecosystem.
“The key to an effective IIoT ecosystem is to have three things,” said Andrew Hird, vice president and general manager of Honeywell Process Solutions’ Digital Transformation business. “First, you need to have secure access to the data being collected; secondly the capability to analyse that data; and finally, you need domain knowledge to understand how to deploy information to benefit the operation. Flowserve’s domain expertise in flow control solutions that include pumps, valves, seals and services is unmatched globally, which makes the Honeywell-Flowserve IIoT ecosystem unique for our customers.”
Flowserve is a global leader in supplying pumps, valves, seals, automation and services to the world’s most critical industrial applications, including power, oil and gas, and chemicals. Operating in more than 55 countries, including across the Middle East, the company produces engineered and industrial pumps, seals and valves, as well as a range of related flow management services.
Hird said that "The goal is a simple-to-use infrastructure that gives customers secure methods to capture and aggregate data, so that it can be leveraged by using analytics and applying a range of domain knowledge from a vast ecosystem of equipment vendors and process licensors.'
