The necessity of accident-prevention protection of powerful compressors and other unique equipment has never raised doubts of the experts, but not the protection of pumping units. High concentration of pump units at petrochemical process units often causes accidents and other production defects.
In case we take the probability of trouble-free operation of a pump unit per day equal to 0.99, the probability of failure for machine fleet containing 100 units will be near 1. In this case the process system is almost nonserviceable.
Increase of operating reliability and maintainability of the units, technical and environmental safety, corporate culture and procedures discipline represents a powerful source of prevention of accidents and personnel traumatizing, and saving of considerable means required for the reconstruction of Russian enterprises. It is achieved by the implementation of ecologically conscious resource-saving technology of operation of oil and gas equipment on the basis of the COMPACS® complex of methodological means and firmware for computer vibration monitoring, vibration analysis and prediction of technical condition of pump-and-compressor equipment.
