The article describes the examples of the COMPACS® vibration monitoring system application for accident prevention of Reftinskaya GRES equipment: air-blowers, hot-blast fans, smoke exhausters, booster pumps, etc.
Equipping supplementary machinery with the COMPACS® condition monitoring stationary system eliminates accidents and converts “sudden failures” into “gradual” and “observable” and “controllable” by providing expert messages shown on the display covering all problems in diagnosed machinery. Due to that, machinery is ensured to be decommissioned for repair once it utilizes its full resource (reaching “Actions required” or “Unacceptable” condition) with full reparability. Automatic diagnostics provides after-repair commissioning of the machinery with objectively evaluated condition and ensured high quality of repair in “Acceptable” condition.
Application of a condition monitoring system allows to determine the causes of failure nucleation and development, as well as to find the fundamental causes of failures and help personnel to take precise actions for ensuring long-time accident-free operation of machinery.
