DYNAMICS SPC and vibration analysis systems' COMPACS history
Piston compressor diagnostic instrument PARK-1
The development of methods and means of vibroacoustic diagnostics has started in 1972, when PARK-1, the device for piston compressor diagnostics, was created and implemented on a test bench in serial production.
In this device methods of compressor defects diagnostics according to the cyclogram of its work with stochastic averaging of results in various frequency bands were realized. The device allowed to diagnose such production defects of compressors, as the often escape of the piston, defects of suction and delivery valves, concentricity of a rotor in a stator, etc.
It had been used on test and running station of compressor DH2-1010 in serial production, which provided nearly one million compressors per year. Piezoelectric electrometers IS-218 were used as sensors, but than they were replaced by IS-312, IS-313, since they had wider frequency diapason.
PARK-1 had the first expert system of production QUALITY monitoring.
The automatic complex for experimental studies of vibroacoustic processes in pumps and units SIGMA
Since 1975 people began to developed methods and means of diagnostics and forecasting of gear fuel pump and hydraulic unit state. SIGMA - powerful and automated complexes for experimental investigations of vibroacoustic processes in gear fuel pump and hydraulic unit in pilot and serial production were created.
SIGMA complexes allowed to produce time and spectral analysis with the help of S5-3 analyser with loop oscillograph N-115 tape, record vibroacoustic signals and their envelopes in frequency diapason from dozens Hz to hundreds kHz per magnetograph N-048 tape, measure and print on EUN-23 printer and PL-150 the number values of diagnostic features with the following trend and vibration spectrum processing using computers Minsk-32 and ES.
During seven years of systems operation, through them passed thousands of serial-production units and dozens of units having long-term and accelerated testings in pilot production. The main pattern of vibroacoustic signals formation caused by unit production and operational defects were found. Also patterns and stages of destruction were defined and created methods of in-place unit diagnostics during a running and acceptance testing and forecasting of their potential operation recourse.
The diagnostic devices of units in serial production and RAPID operation
On the basis of SIGMA the series of RAPID - devices for unit diagnostics in serial production and operation were created. The devices were exhibit on Progress-83 and were honoured with silver and two bronze USSR Exhibition of Economic Achievements medals.
During the devices acceptance, customers stated severe metrological specifications: «If you measure vibration, please point out parameter, frequency range, amplitude range, error in accordance with GOSTs». Thus, it was necessary to dispel the illusions and normalize errors in frequency rate higher than 3000 Hz, specially, when mounting a sensor on magnet or probe.
Methods of vibroacoustic diagnostics considering machining by chip removal – deep casing drilling, turbine blade milling, gear blades and teeth grinding, tough alloy turning operation, had been actively developing in the same period - 1975-1985.
1986-1988. Microprocessor usage was actively studied by example of electric heading machine for workpiece punching with automatic control according to the temperature of a workpiece. In that case wear of the matrix and puncheon is evaluated with vibroacoustic parameters signal. Also in that period a few systems of detail ion-plasmous evaporation automatic control and automatic control of hard-alloy tool solder according to the temperature in high frequency current units were developed.
In RAPID systems first Automatic Expert system on the basis of pseudo-coherent selection of Noise and Periodical Components (NPC) with acoustic signal envelope was used.
First stationary pump unit state monitoring system SVK-1
On spring, 1989 the chief mechanic of Omsk Refining V.N. Dolgopyatov assigned a task to diagnose pump units on the Refining technological units: «I had been checking the work of mechanics and drivers – went to the pump chamber, stay there for 40 minutes – nobody there, although the driver is obliged to check the pumps constantly; went to the operator room – they are here, discussing something, the driver says to me: «Viktor Nikolayevich, I have just been to the pump chamber – it’s OK!». If a good employee does that, what can you expect from a bad one? The main reason of accidents is the lack of visual data on the equipment state. I had equipped mechanics and driver with vibroacoustic devices and headphones and cursor for a few times – that has done no good: Some have device, that does not work, some do not work with device themselves, some place a sensor in the place, where vibration is lower, etc. Subjective methods do not suit, since an objective control, which does not depend on staff’s opinions, needs and skills, is required. Equipment state monitoring should be reliable, easy-presented and be clear to the one who graduated from vocational school!». The systems were built on that approach.
SBK-1 system was the first stationary vibration control system for pump unit state, implemented on Omsk Refinery in October, 1990. It has automatically detected 5 main malfunctions: bearing, cavitation, centering, balancing and fastening quality.
Before the system development, there was a researching period of big pump unit vibration characteristic in order to detect places and methods of sensors mounting, list of diagnosed parameters required, and threshold values of vibration parameters. Methodological and firmware for RAPID systems developed since middle 70th for aero-engine pump units diagnostics had been used for researches.
The research revealed, that machinery state control by vibration velocity parameter only (according to the required regulations) requires 12 sensors mounting on the unit, also the diagnostic method is complicated and often leads to omission of unit malfunctions. On the basis of information completeness principal a minimal diagnostic features list required was defined (vibration acceleration, velocity, vibration displacement) for reliable unit state control using minimal vibration sensors number.
SBK-1 system controlled the operation of 2 propane pump units with capacity of 500 kW of deasphalting unit 36/1-3. This system contains elements, which were present in all the following developments: 3 vibration parameters calculation from one sensor signal; full hardware self-control, including sensors.
The system measures vibration in 4 places of every pump unit – on pump and engine bearings. The system uses analog electric units for signal processing, digital indicators and light-emitting diodes for equipment state data display, unconditional logic elements and mechanical switches for its operation control. Protocol printing was provided, but the personnel asked to make the data to be issued on KSP, in order to reduce its paper expenditures we have had to develop a unit, changing recording speed according to the equipment state.
The system did good on 36-1/3 unit and issued first affirmative diagnose on the electric motor bearing damage, which was confirmed after its disassembling and worked till the August 1993 when it was replaced by the COMPACS® vibration monitoring system.
The first stationary system of pump unit computer monitoring with in-built vibration analyser SVIP-64
SVIP-64M diagnostics and prognosis system of centrifugal pump unit bearing state, having 64 sensors was implemented on АВТ-10 unit of Omsk Refinery in July, 1991.
It already included an exotic for those days PC АТ286, mounted on the shop unit. PC display application as the unique mean of data issuing has solved problems with equipment state indication, since other decisions are too awkward and could not give enough facilities to issue unit state and tendencies of its change or forecast.
PC also solved problems of data collecting from local diagnostic stations, forecast parameters calculations by means of autoregression equation - moving average, data archiving, simultaneous issuing of 2 different vibration parameters trend diagrams in different time scales and its forecast, measure protocols printing, issuing of the system full self-control results.
Control of the operation modes was carried out via the menu. Configuration of firmware for system adjustment to unit configuration is implemented in a special menu option.
The whole software package was written in EGA graphic mode on C programming language under DOS. This software package, according to the modern classification applied to SCADA (Supervision Control and Data Acquisition) ММI-type systems (Man-Machine Interface) was, apparently, one of the first systems of such kind not only in Russia, but in the world.
That was the period when standards of pump unit vibration parameters were defined. It is necessary to point out, that standards values, defined at that time on a small unit sampling according to the method developed, were changed after massive implementation of the COMPACS® systems, when they were specified and confirmed by State Technical & Mining Inspectorate of Russia.
During the stationary systems development a great consideration was given to the place choice and vibration sensors placement method. Traditional methods, such as stud fastening, magnetic fastening or glue fastening are either required of unit construction improvement (which is unacceptable) or not reliable enough in real operation conditions.
There was developed sensor fastening method, which does not requires unit construction improvement, which met the requirements of State Technical & Mining Inspectorate and was operational-reliable enough and allowed to gather maximum information from minimal number of sensors.
The main requirements for system sensors are formulated and implemented, first of all, bigger output – up to 100 pCl/m/s2 - for operation on long cable lines up to 500 m or more, providing their faultless operation during the whole operating life of the system (not more than 10 years).
Sensors construction had been continually improved, considering real operation experience. The following items were developed: vibration sensors with magnetic fastening, special constructions thermocouples, current sensors, rotation frequency sensors, pressure sensors, level sensors, motion sensors, etc.
Therefore, methods of providing checkability of the explosion-proof units with no improvement required were developed, as well as sensor and their fastening accessories constructions, implementing minimal cost diagnostic strategy - MCDS™ in case of acceptable recognition error.
DYNAMICS SPC Foundation, the stationary vibration monitoring systems COMPACS® and Management Directive
Due to successful implementation of first stationary computer monitoring systems on 11 of June, 1991, "Diagnostics, machinery reliability and complex automation" Scientific and Production Center - DYNAMICS SPC was founded in Omsk.
From 1991 to 1994 10 units in Omsk Refinery were equipped with first computer pump-and-compressor unit state monitoring with in-built automatic expert system – the COMPACS® Computer Monitoring System for Accidents Prevention and Machinery State Control.
The system implementation was accompanied with creation of strong regulatory and methodological base, which foundation was a Management Directive "Centrifugal electric-driven pumps and compressor units, equipped with the computer monitoring systems for accidents prevention and state control COMPACS®. Vibration operational regulations" approved by Ministry of Fuel and Energy and State Technical & Mining Inspectorate of Russian Federation in 1994.
In this document for the first time in the world not only vibration velocity and vibration displacement were regulated for different units, but also a vibration acceleration and vibration parameter growth. And the most important fact is that this document allowed condition-monitored operation of the equipment and PPR in case of COMPACS® systems implementation.
February, 1994, the COMPACS® Computer Monitoring System for Accidents Prevention and State Control was accepted by Ministry of Fuel and Energy and State Technical & Mining Inspectorate commission of Russian Federation and recommended for wide implementation. Sensors, modules and systems in complex with software were certificated and accepted by Ministry of Fuel and Energy oil-refining department commission, together with State Technical & Mining Inspectorate. The COMPACS® systems were certified by Gosstandart, included in public register of measuring means and permitted to be used in territory of Russia by State Technical & Mining Inspectorate of Russian Federation.
In 1995 massive implementation of systems in Russian enterprises has started. Before 1998 systems were successfully implemented in Angarsk petrochemical company, Tobolsk petrochemical company, Volgograd petrochemical company, Achinsk petrochemical company, Slavneft-Yaroslavsky Refinery.

Institute of Radio electronics, Service and Diagnostics – NEI IRESD (Nongovernmental Educational Institution)
In 1997 DYNAMICS SPC together with colleagues established a nongovernmental educational institution (NEI) the "Institute of Radio electronics, Service and Diagnostics – IRESD", for non-destructive control specialists training.
In November 2002 it received a certificate on governmental accreditation of higher education institute from Federal Service for Supervision in the Sphere of Education and Science and in 2005 the certificate was confirmed.
In 2007 full-time and distant post-graduate course was established in NEI IRESD.
Creation of the ACS SMSRTM™ COMPACS®
In 1997 the technology and the Automated Control Systems for Safe-Money-Saving Real-Time Maintenance of equipment (The ACS SMSRTM™ COMPACS®), which unite stationary health monitoring systems, stand systems of units and assemblies quality control, the Compacs®-Micro personal systems for automatic vibration analysis into the one diagnostic network Compacs-Net®.
In 1999 the book "The Automated Control Systems for Safe-Money-Saving Real-Time Maintenance of refinery and petrochemical plants equipment (The ACS SMSRTM™ COMPACS®)" was published:
The implementation of technologies for safe money-saving real-time maintenance of complex plant units, including hundreds and thousands of machines, units and other kind of equipment, is nowadays impossible without methods and means of in-place technical diagnostics, which provide automatic evaluation and forecast of unit state and safe operation interval during their functioning in all range of working modes and factors which influence modern manufacturing.
In this monograph has been made an attempt to resume the development of the COMPACS® systems of computer monitoring and diagnostics of machinery equipment for the first 10 years of DYNAMICS SPC and companies-consumers of its goods in the fields of petrochemicals and refinery.
For this years there were developed and implemented on different stages of refinery equipment operating life about a hundred of the stationary diagnostic systems COMPACS® for monitoring and forecasting of unit and machinery technical state, based on vibration acoustic method of non-destructive control, which provided accidents and production failure prevention and rapidly decreased number of unit downtimes caused by such reasons. The quality of unit and assembly repairs had a substantial growth, due to the implementation of diagnostic systems, providing repair quality control on the enterprise.
Russian Federation Government Award
In 1998 for the paper "Stationary systems of machine equipment safe operation continuous monitoring of potentially dangerous productions of chemical, petrochemical and oil and gas processing industry" and widespread introduction of the stationary monitoring and vibration analysis systems COMPACS® the following group of authors was awarded with the Russian Federation Government Award in Science and Engineering: Malov E.A. (State mining inspection of the Russian Federation), Bronfin I.B. Dolgopyatov V.N. (Omsk Refinery), employees of DYNAMICS SPC – Kostyukov V.N., Boychenko S.N., Meling A.Y., Tarasov E.V., Pavlenko B.A.
Formation and development of Russian monitoring school
Vladimir Nikolaevich Kostyukov - Chairman of the board of directors of DYNAMICS SPC, Doctor of Technical Science, Professor, Russian Federation Government Award-winner, 3-level specialist in vibration analysis, acoustic emission, visual control and control by measurement.
He is an author of more than 340 papers and inventions in the field of technical diagnostics and health monitoring of equipment and processes.
On 26 of April, 2001 he successfully defended a doctor thesis entitled "Development of the theory, technology and monitoring system equipment for units of petrochemical complex" in Bauman’s Moscow State University.
Solution of the country’s energy supply is closely connected with safe operation of equipment unit of petrochemical continuous production and, first of all, petrochemical complexes (PCC). High concentration of machinery units in PCC: pumps, compressors, air-coolers, smoke exhausters, etc. with single powers vary from dozens of kWt to a few MWt, hidden nature of malfunction appearance and development, poor observability of unit defects, which can lead to sudden failures – often were reasons of production malfunctions and emergencies followed by big financial losses and environmental pollutions.
Recently, State Technical & Mining Inspectorate of Russia began to increase the supervision on the equipment state using modern methods and automatic means of monitoring, adequately reflecting high speed rates of all the processes in the “supervision-control-stability-supervision” loop.
That requires the development of new approaches to the creation of automatic diagnostics and monitoring systems (DMS), providing minimal cost of automatic diagnostics, delivery and issue of diagnostic prescriptions on the unit state control to the personnel and execution control. The existing regulatory system and vibration operational standards do not correspond to automatic DMS requirements and do not provide safe petro-chemical unit operation. The technology of usage of automatic SDM as stationary industrial system also requires further developments.
Therefore, completing such an important national economic task – to provide safe money-saving operation of machinery units and continuous productions, raises a problem of developing of theory, technology and equipment of real-time monitoring systems for petrochemical complex unit, considering human factor.
He is an author of more than 100 papers in the field of technical diagnostics and condition monitoring of machinery.
In 2007 he defended a thesis, entitled "The organizational and economic mechanism of equipment operation management (on the example of the oil processing enterprises".
