Case Study: Chesterton Connect

iot simplified


  • The A.W. Chesterton Company is a world leader in helping process industry companies and manufacturers improve the reliability and efficiency of their rotating, stationary, and fluid power equipment platforms.
  • Chesterton realized it could add value by providing seal condition monitoring and analysis; however, implementation of “IoT” technologies was outside their core competency.
  • Speeding time to market, Chesterton partnered with Preddio to realize its IoT ambitions.


  • Customer use-case driven requirements were rapidly developed and iterated upon, focused on differentiated value.
  • The appropriate architecture and implementation strategy was chosen to support their use cases – a Bluetooth app-based solution with options to add cloud and remote monitoring was ultimately chosen.
  • User interface (UI) design and user experience (UX) was developed to support non-technical customers, simplifying the product experience from installation to operation.


  • Chesterton Connect launched in early 2020, less than one year from conception.
  • Since launch, hundreds of customer success stories have occurred – examples of saved mechanical seals, pumps, and most importantly unexpected downtime, continue to elevate and enhance the Chesterton service offering.
  • By partnering with Preddio, Chesterton was able to become the first seal manufacturer offering this type of solution – setting trends, increasing sales, and improving market perception.
