Fuel Actuator Command Percentage and Intake Manifold Pressure
Alert Type: Prescriptive Alert with Advanced Conditions Alert
High-pressure diesel fuel pumps can fail suddenly, ejecting metal and causing severe engine damage. By modeling normal behavior and anomalies, we discovered thresholds of multiple sensors which are accurate predictors of impending pump failure. The formula is converted into an advance prescriptive alert which runs continuously, predicting when the pump is likely to fail.
Western Towboat has gone from multiple failures per year with high-pressure fuel pumps to ZERO pump failures in four years.
