Issues connected with uninterrupted operation provision and search for means of improvement of resource–saving technologies are vital for Tobolsk-Neftekhim, LLC. That has become a main reason for cooperation with DYNAMICS SPC and implementation of the COMPACS® vibration analysis and condition monitoring system for pump units.
Since 1998, one of the largest shops of the Tobolsk-Neftekhim, LLC’s - DBO-10 – has 36 the most important pump units equipped with the COMPACS® system providing constant control of their technical state.
In 2012, 13 more pump units were added to them. Currently, the units’ state is constantly supervised through 108 vibration channels and 36 current strength measurement channels.
If the state of supervised units is worsening along with an increase of the nominal vibration parameter values the COMPACS® system issues verbal and text warnings and recommendations for the staff to solve the problem and the most probable cause of the unit’s state worsening.
The successful application of the COMPACS® system can be explained by its following advantages:
- during its operation the automatic monitoring of the pump units’ state is carried out;
- it does an electronic archiving of the monitoring data - trends of parameters, signals, logs of machinery state, which helps to carry out search, view and printing of necessary data;
- unit state is displayed on the screen in easy for comprehension tree-coloured array;
- the system has an in-built expert system giving prompting messages about the most probable reasons of the units’ state worsening, helping the staff to conduct the operating procedure saving the units’ service life by their accident-free operation.
Due to mentioned above, as well as the Compacs-Net® diagnostic network set in the enterprise which allows the specialists and managers in charge of safe operation of the machinery to get the information on the pumps’ state from their own workplaces, if they are connected to the intraplant network. Consequently, the enterprise staff reduces the pump units’ downtime caused by unscheduled repairs, and ensures timely and full production.
