In April, 2012 the stationary system COMPACS® was implemented at the ELOU-AVT-12 unit. Under the COMPACS® supervision there are 256 machinery units: 59 pumps, 197 air-coolers. The machinery condition monitoring is carried out by means of vibration analysis and thermal methods of non-destruction testing with the help of vibration and temperature sensors.
The implementation of the monitoring systems ensures observability of the machinery condition in real time, timely reaction of the personnel to its changes due to the arising malfunctions of various assemblies and details, as well as with violation of the technological regime of its operation. This helps to carry out safe resource-saving and condition-monitored operation of machinery equipment.
At the Tuapse Refinery in maintenance & repair shop the COMPACS®-RPP system has been implemented and successfully operating since 2006 till the present time. Today, more than 2500 rolling bearings have passed the acceptance test.
The usage of the COMPACS®-RPP stand system has allowed to exclude putting into operation of low-qualified bearings, and, consequently, enhance the reliability and increase the resource of the machinery, which, as a result, led to a considerable money-saving.
