In 2005 at the ELOU-ATV-6 unit of Saratov Refinery, JSC there were 29 the most important pumps equipped with the COMPACS® system providing continuous condition monitoring.
In 2011 the number of units which condition was under the supervision of the COMPACS® system increased by 55 items. Currently, the continuous condition supervision of the most important units is carried out through 271 vibration channel and 81 current measurement channel.
In case of worsening of the supervised units’ condition, which is characterized by the exceeding nominal parameters of bearing assembly threshold level vibration the COMPACS system issues verbal and text warnings to the shop personnel concerning the most possible reason of the condition worsening and recommendations for the actions need to be done. The warnings are checked by the engineering supervision group of the enterprise issuing the recommendations.
Due to the constant machinery condition monitoring and the Compacs-Net® diagnostic network of the enterprise, which allows for the personnel in charge to get the information on the condition of pumps under the supervision right from their workplaces, connected to the intra-plant computer network, the enterprise personnel managed to reduce the pump units downtime caused by the unscheduled repairs, which allowed to ensure annual production output in full volume and in time.
