Operation costs can be minimized by conducting timely and focused maintenance based on real-time condition monitoring, full using the equipment resource, and elimination of unscheduled shutdown and replacement.
Main causes of equipment operation problems at petrochemical enterprises are:
- lack of observability of actual operation processes;
- lack of quality control of the units and their assemblies during production and repair;
- design errors in calculation of the required aggregate capacity;
- lack of efficient control over the actions of the personnel responsible for conducting of the process and maintaining of equipment operability.
These problems often block timely and focused measures for maintaining a high degree of technical readiness of production. The problems above can be solved by the implementation of the COMPACS® stationary systems for vibration analysis and equipment condition monitoring at process units, at repair departments - stand systems for vibration analysis and repair quality control of the units and their assemblies, at whole enterprise - computer diagnostic network Compacs-Net® that enables direct management of the operation in real-time mode. The implementation of the systems for vibration analysis and equipment condition monitoring on the basis of Automated Control Systems of Safe Resource-saving operation and Maintenance of equipment (ACS SRSM™) COMPACS® enables high level of anthropogenic safety and production efficiency.
