Since 1996 "LUKOIL–Volgogradneftepererabotka" LLC has implemented a number of diagnostic and monitoring systems of machinery technical condition. According to the results of operation in February 1997 during the technical meeting at "LUKOIL" JSC a positive decision was made concerning the further involvement of DYNAMICS SPC (Omsk) in equipping of "LUKOIL-Volgogradneftepererabotka" LLC with ACS SRSM™ COMPACS® in order to prevent failures and downtimes of process units, as well as to transmit the machinery to the on-condition maintenance. To date, the enterprise fully uses all the elements of on-condition maintenance technology, which consists of:
- stationary systems for diagnosis and monitoring to prevent failures and control the technical condition of machinery COMPACS® at 9 plant units: 5, 6, 11, 20, 21, 22, 24, 25, 60;
- systems of repair quality control: acceptance test and diagnostics of bearings COMPACS®-RPP, cantilever pumps rotors diagnostics and balancing in their own bearings COMPACS®-RPM, systems of repair quality control of electric motors COMPACS®-RPE;
- portable diagnostic systems Compacs®-micro, intended for the quasi-static equipment diagnostics;
- diagnostic network Compacs-Net®, combining all the systems into a single information space, allowing the technical management of the enterprise to control in real time the operation of the enterprise machinery from the workplace.
As a result of ACS SRSM™ COMPACS® implementation the company has significantly decreased the number of emergency breakdowns of tubing units, reduced the number and complexity of equipment repairs, improved the production discipline and the quality of repair work, the operation of process units equipment has became "transparent".
The implementation of ACS SRSM™ COMPACS® at "LUKOIL-Volgogradneftepererabotka" LLC allowed to save significant amounts of money by dint of the actual exclusion of failures caused by pump-and-compressor equipment and idle process units for these reasons, reducing the cost and extent of carried out repairs, reallocation of overhauls and medium repairs to current, as well as due to energy savings by dint of significant decrease in vibration activity of machines.
The economic effect of the systems COMPACS® application far exceeded the costs on their implementation.
