The COMPACS® system was implemented on the ELOU AVT-5 unit of "Kuibyshev Refinery" JSC in 2012. The first implementation of the system was on the basic, the most important units.
During the COMPACS® system operation, series of repairs was carried out based on system readings, which confirmed the effectiveness of equipment condition monitoring by the vibration parameters. The introduction of pump-and-compressor equipment monitoring systems has provided the condition observability of each piece of equipment in real time not only to the process unit, but also remotely through the Compacs-Net®, has allowed to react to the equipment health changes in proper time, connected as with the occurrence of malfunctions of different assemblies and details, so with violations of the technological operating mode.
Moreover, in 2013 the system’s second phase was implemented. The extension allowed to cover more comprehensive dynamic equipment park on the unit. At the moment, 93 equipment pump unit, 4 blowers and 4 smoke exhausters are operating under the supervision of the COMPACS® system.
Also, on the ELOU AVT-5 unit, the information transfer about the health of the units to the APCS (Automatic Process Control System) based on the COMPACS®-OPC technology was realised, that along with the diagnostic network Compacs-Net® extends opportunities of the system.
