The Standards of Russian technical expertise Association:
"Centrifugal pump and compressor units of hazardous facilities. Operating standards of vibration",
"Monitoring of hazardous production facilities units. General technical requirements".
Application experience of COMPACS® stationary systems for condition monitoring of equipment and diagnostic network Compacs-Net® for five users at nine processing units of Astrakhan gas-processing plant confirms the high effectiveness of condition monitoring for safe, fault-free operation of equipment.
The Standard "Centrifugal pump and compressor units of hazardous facilities. Operating standards of vibration" develops the guidance document, approved in 1994 by the State Technical Supervision Service and the Ministry of Fuel and Energy of Russia, which first determines the rate of vibration according to vibroacceleration and vibro-displacement of such types of equipment, which previously were not controlled by these parameters. Very important is the rate valuation of vibration parameters change, which is not in any of domestic and foreign standards. Of fundamental importance are the ways of the sensors installation, listed in the Standard, as they not only reduce the number of sensors in one unit, but also eliminate interference with equipment construction.
The Standard "Monitoring of hazardous production facilities units. General technical requirements" for the first time determines the construction principles for monitoring systems, the systems classification and applicability for equipment of different danger and responsibility categories. The Standard defines a common structure and general requirements for condition monitoring systems. In particular sections the requirements to the monitoring systems of machinery units and process equipment are formulated. This allows to equip the enterprise with complex monitoring systems, thus implementing vibrodiagnostic, acoustic-emission, parametric and other methods of non-destructive testing on a single hardware and software platform, which is quite important in the modern world.
The Standards were first to set the terminology in the field of monitoring, which eliminates errors in the choice of systems. It is important that the thesis of the proposed Standards are worked out through their practical application in various industries. Commissioning of the Standards will significantly increase the operational safety of potentially hazardous industries.
