SmartGuard Collector Monitoring System

Source: Brentwood Industries, Inc.


SmartGuard Collector Monitoring was developed to complement Brentwood’s Polychem sludge collector system by identifying overloads that cannot be detected by traditional shear-pin or torque monitoring devices. SmartGuard’s strategic placement allows it to monitor regular motion, warn of potential danger, and shut down the system before damage can occur.
