There is quite a large scope of the piston machines (PM), where the safety of their operation is paramount and decisive factor. These are PM of petrochemical complex (PCC) potentially hazardous facilities.
Sudden and emergency PCC equipment breakdown threatens not only the appearance of significant economic losses due to downtimes and working capacity restoration, but also environmental and man-made accidents and disasters. In this regard, it is very important to obtain not only reliable, but early diagnosis as well, which can provide trouble-free operation with maximum resource use of the replaceable units and parts.
This can be achieved only by providing a diagnosis-making at a time-interval, shorter than the malfunction development. For the PCC equipment this period can lie in the range from several minutes to hours, days, weeks, months.
The monitoring system of technical equipment COMPACS® allows to control purposefully and reliably the reciprocating compressors condition.
The article deals with methodological principles of operation and repair of reciprocating machines, compressors, in particular the hazardous continuous facilities compressors, according to the actual technical condition using the real-time technical condition monitoring systems. Examples of maintenance and repair on the monitoring system COMPACS® indications.
