Goulds Pumps” ANSIModel 3196 process pump now features standard onboard intelligence,featuring new i-FRAME technology to provide operations personnel,maintenance managers, and reliability engineers with early warning oftrouble so that changes to the process or machine can be made beforefailure occurs.The  i-FRAME’s stainless steel condition monitor is nested atopthe power end to measure critical vibration and temperature readings.Variations in temperature or vibration that exceed preset parameterswill activate an early-warning system by displaying flashing red lightsthat can be recognized during routine walk-arounds. Other standardfeatures of the patent-pending i-FRAME design include:
•  Severe duty thrust bearings, which increase fatigue life by two to five times that of standard bearings
•  Stainless-steel, bronze-bearing isolators for improved corrosion resistance and contaminant exclusion
•  Optimizedsump design to improve heat transfer and collect and concentratecontaminants away from the bearings to ensure long bearing life

The 3196 pump isavailable in 29 different sizes with features for handling challengingapplications. The 3196 pump with i-FRAME power ends come with a five-year warranty as standard.
