The article dwells upon the COMPACS® system for comprehensive condition monitoring of machinery and equipment on the example of DCU 21- 10/ЗM of Omsk Refinery.
Equipping the machinery with the stationary COMPACS® system has allowed to eliminate accidents and so called "sudden failures". "Sudden" are those failures which has no observability of faults nucleation and development, their further growth into emergency situation.
Application of the COMPACS® system at the DCU in real production conditions for the first time has allowed to analyze its operation and determine procedure areas where accidents appear. The system automatically indicate the worst area, capturing not only the temperature, but its growth speed and gradients, and issues an expert system message on "unacceptable changing speed and temperature difference" in the section which appeared during coke was being cooling down.
All data on the equipment condition diagnosed by the COMPACS® system are transmitted through the diagnostic network Compacs-Net® to the workplaces of heads of all services and departments in charge of safety and operation of units: through Compacs-Net® the users get the full picture of both machinery and processing equipment’s operability. This allows not only to see the unit condition in general, but also efficiently control personnel’s actions prompted by the system, and also control accuracy of the process conduction.
