Henkel creates added value for its customers with the digital LOCTITE Pulse solutions
In October 2021, Henkel Adhesive Technologies, a global leader in adhesives, sealants and functional coatings, introduced LOCTITE Pulse, an Industrial Internet-of-Things (IoT) solution that contributes to the reliability of critical assets. Once installed in your critical assets, LOCTITE Pulse sensors continuously collect data and provide valuable insights into asset health.
LOCTITE Pulse has been designed for the monitoring of assets, supporting the current needs of industrial maintenance: efficient operations, increasing uptime, saving energy losses, and thus reducing the CO2 footprint. The new solution offers smart technology to increase the efficiency, safety and sustainability of industrial sites while saving costs and resources.
LOCTITE Pulse Smart Steam Trap is an innovative solution that monitors the health of steam traps and supports the prediction of critical failures. With a set of easy-to-install nano sensors applied at the inlet and outlet of the steam trap, the solution continuously gathers information about the status of the equipment. Using highly sensitive sensors and intelligent analytics, LOCTITE Pulse can detect malfunctions at a very early stage and help predict and prevent energy losses and damage to the plant. The operator receives information about changes in the steam trap’s status via the easy-to-use LOCTITE Pulse app, allowing them to act rather than react.
In addition to LOCTITE Pulse Smart Steam Trap, the growing LOCTITE Pulse portfolio includes the Smart Flange, which helps monitor critical flanges, supports the detection of early leakages, and reduces the risk of serious incidents. In future, Henkel aims to launch further solutions for the smart monitoring of a broad variety of critical assets across industries, all managed via one single LOCTITE Pulse app.
LOCTITE Pulse awarded with BEMAS’ Digital Innovation Award
During the MAINTENANCE 2023 trade fair, BEMAS, the Belgian Maintenance Association, awarded Henkel for its LOCTITE Pulse solutions with the Digital Innovation Award. According to the jury, reasons for selecting Henkel were amongst others the high degree of innovation and the outstanding potential to further expand the solution portfolio in the future.
“What convinced us first and foremost was the particularly broad applicability,” says jury chairman Jos Vankevelaer. “Where other applications focus primarily on rotating equipment, LOCTITE Pulse focuses primarily on static equipment.”
