Since November 1995 COMPACS® system prevented serious problems and emergency situations on pumping equipment and air coolers. It`s almost impossible to notice the defects detected by the system, but COMPACS® timely warned against developing defects, thus providing scheduled repairs of the equipment. There were no emergency breakdowns of the equipment except 2 cases when the system responded at the last moment (3-5min. before) and the staff had no time to react.
When the system was implemented, 70% of pumping equipment and air coolers were operated in the "red" zone (intolerable), as confirmed by the vibration analysis service. COMPACS® system allowed to coordinate more effectively the work of maintenance and repair service, electric shop service and technological personnel. Thereby almost all equipment was brought into operating state during 2 months.
During the period of 1996-1997s the number of pumps midlife repairs and overhauls was reduced 1.95 times in comparison with 1994-1995s. So in 1994 33 midlife repairs and overhauls were performed at unit L-35/11-1000 and in 1995-26 repairs, in 1996 -12 repairs, in 1997-17 repairs.
System failures were not observed, indication and diagnostics accuracy was confirmed by the vibration analysis service.
