During run-to-failure period of the units the COMPACS® systems continuously monitor their condition by the parameters of vibration, temperature and consumption current. Thus, the COMPACS® systems ensure efficient vibration analysis and notify the personnel about inappropriate modes of equipment operation, critical defects of pumping units, dynamic loads, modes of friction, and free distances in the bearings of centrifugal compressors, condition of bearings and gears, driving multipliers, crank-crosshead gear, valves and cylinder-piston group in reciprocating compressors.
The systems for automatic vibration analysis and condition monitoring of equipment are very effective. Thus, elimination of downtime of millionth reforming unit at the expense of unfounded halting of hydrogen compressor, which is the heart of the unit, in a day covers the expenses for the system implementation.
