Low objectiveness of condition assessment and lack of observability of hidden processes of condition degradation of potentially dangerous and critically important units, caused by the wear and inadequate actions of maintenance and repair personnel. These are the fundamental reasons of operational problems of the units.
Operational losses can be minimized by timely and purposeful maintenance on the basis of real-time condition monitoring results and usage of full resource of the units, eliminating unscheduled (emergency) shutdowns and repairs providing high level of safety and technical readiness.
The existing regulatory framework of international standards determines only the general approaches to the monitoring problem solving by measuring of parameters of different processes, including vibration measurement.
Joint usage of various methods of diagnostics and non-destructive testing for condition control of potentially dangerous and critically important units, on one hand, is a complicated and actual task, since it is necessary to develop a complex of diagnostic features based on various parameters of physical processes. On the other hand, various types of units demand specific decisions on choosing of the diagnostic methods and parameters.
The solution of this problem can be made on the basis of fundamental research works, adequate approbation of the decisions and the developed systems operation in real conditions of potentially dangerous and critically important units functioning.
Many years of DYNAMICS SPC experience in design, implementation and operation of real-time monitoring systems for dangerous production facilities without shutdown, demounting and decommissioning at Russian enterprises and abroad allowed to develop not only methodological bases and brand-new technological decisions and means of real-time condition monitoring, but, also, regulative-and-methodical documents, which determine the classification and main technical requirements to monitoring systems, operational norms of vibration for several types of machines and mechanisms, and principles of dangerous production facilities monitoring.
