Since March 2010 comprehensive condition monitoring system COMPACS® was implemented at delayed coking unit 21-10/600 of workshop № 2 Detection Starting Devices (DSD) of "Fergana Refinery," which monitors the technical condition of 8 critical raw, firing pump units and 4 coking reactors.
Condition monitoring of 8 pump units is carried out by using vibration analysis, thermal and parametric methods of non-destructive testing by means of vibration, temperature and power consumption sensors.
Condition monitoring of 4 coking reactors is carried out due to acoustic emission, thermal and parametric methods of non-destructive testing by means of atomic power, temperature and linear expansion and pressure sensors.
The system automatically monitors the technical condition and diagnosis of equipment defects on running conditions of processing unit, which allowed the staff to control changes of equipment condition and timely, purposefully provide condition-monitored maintenance and repair of the equipment.
As a result of a three-month equipment operation on the actual technical condition under control of COMPACS® system, the indications, responsible for the safety and reliability of the processing unit, have been improved several times.
In addition, there appeared a diagnostic network Compacs-Net®, which allowed the leading specialists of the enterprise (OTN equipment, workshop number 2) to obtain objective information about equipment condition of installation in order to automate scheduling and repair process, control personnel performance discipline and evaluation of its efficiency. Professionals do not need to visit the object; the users of the diagnostic network at their workplace get a complete picture of the processing unit equipment.
