Since September, 2012 the system for comprehensive technical condition monitoring COMPACS® has been implemented at the delayed coking unit UZK-1000 of the "LUKOIL-Volgogradneftepererabotka" LLC coking- bituminous production. The system monitors the technical condition of 30 crucial pump units, 2 smoke exhausters and 2 coke drums.
Pump units condition monitoring is carried out by vibration analysis and parametrical methods of non-destructive testing and by means of vibration and current consumption sensors.
Two coke drums condition monitoring is held by acoustic emission, thermal and parametrical methods of non-destructive testing and by means of acoustic emission, temperature, linear expansion and strain sensors.
The system monitors the technical condition and diagnoses the technological unit equipment defects in the automatic mode, thus allowing the personnel to follow changes of the state and to maintain and repair the equipment timely, purposefully and according to its actual technical condition.
As a result of the 5-month equipment operation under the COMPACS® system control, the safety and reliability activities of the technological unit have been improved.
