Intensive implementation of the piston compressor monitoring systems at hazardous production facilities of refinery and petrochemical enterprises established a problem of standardizing of measured parameters, which are used for condition monitoring of piston compressors. One of the main physical processes applied in monitoring systems is vibration.
Vibration parameter standardizing method uses a deduced form experiments fact: when machines function normally the vibration parameters of some of the machines have lower values than those that can be used as limiting ones.
Today in Russia there are acting standards which allow together with monitoring systems for hazardous production facilities and in compliance with requirements of the 1st class monitoring systems, to ensure that static, dynamic errors and risk of failure of dangerous condition do not exceed 5%.
As a result, for the first time in the world, monitoring systems made in accordance with STO 03-007–11 standard using the developed algorithms of automatic expert system for decision-making allows to carry out condition monitoring of piston compressors of hazardous production facilities and to provide their safe resource-saving operation.
