Process equipment of modern productions usually includes rotating and static equipment. Different types of hardware are used for diagnostics and condition monitoring today. Global trend to narrow specialization of the enterprises developing technologies, stationary and portable diagnostic tools intended for a certain type of equipment brings into existence the systems produced by different companies. Many of these systems are virtually incompatible neither by electric, nor by information parameters, so they can not be integrated into a single information space of Automatic Process Control System of the enterprise.
At the same time aufbau principles of the COMPACS® system enable easy configuring its firmware for condition monitoring of various types of rotating equipment (centrifugal cradle-mounted, double-beat and reciprocating pumps, air and gas blowers, fans, air coolers, centrifugal and reciprocating compressors) and static equipment (reactors, columns, vessels, heat-exchangers, pipelines, etc.).
The most important factor, which determines the reliability of monitoring, is presentation and storage of the monitoring results in a single information space by means of the standardization of nomenclature, format and presentation of the monitoring results.
The COMPACS® system, which ensures observability of rotating and the most important static equipment, is the example of comprehensive approach to condition monitoring of hazardous production facilities.
