Machinery failures make up the major part of failures of units of oil-refining and petrochemical complexes. Machinery failures often cause accidents and manufacturing defects.
In order to mend matters it is necessary to ensure observability and evaluation of technical condition of the units during the manufacturing process, during acceptance at consuming plants, during repair at repair departments of refineries, during the mounting of assemblies at the unit, and during operation at process units.
Increase of petrochemical complex (PCC) reliability without replacement of equipment and reconstruction is realized by implementation of monitoring tools at all stages of life cycle of PCC units, i.e. by different systems for vibration analysis and vibration monitoring - stationary, personal and stand (on input diagnostics of the bearings, diagnostics and balancing of pump spindles, etc.), their integration into a single diagnostic network ACS SRSM™ (Automated Control Systems of Safe Resource-saving operation and Maintenance of equipment), which enables automatic preparation and circulation of diagnostic information between the systems and submission of the information at all levels from operator and mechanic to the shop heads.
