There is a quite huge area of compressor equipment use where its operation safety is a primary and dominant factor. Such equipment is created for hazardous production facilities of petrochemical industries. Receiving not only reliable but timely diagnostics is highly significant for the equipment. The diagnostics provides accident-free operation with maximal operation life of replaceable assemblies and details. In order to achieve this, it is essential to diagnose the equipment within shorter period of time than failure development period. For the petrochemical and gas industries such diagnostic period may amount to several minutes, hours, days, weeks or even months.
Safety and reliable production facilities operation is one of the major problems which can be solved by providing observability for production facilities. The condition of the equipment significantly affects techno-economic performances of the production and technology-related incidents.
Observability of production facilities condition is carried out through monitoring, which is a supervision of production facilities.
