Non-destructive testing and technical diagnostics of columns, reactors and tanks of refinery and petrochemical productions during operation on production conditions is an urgent task, which solution provides reliability and safety of explosive and flammable productions.
The computer monitoring and automatic diagnostics systems COMPACS® apply almost all methods of non-destructive testing: vibration, acoustic emission, heat, electric, eddy-current, acoustic, optical.
The principles of the system’s structure allow to provide flexibility and multipurposeness of the applied NDT methods. In that case the data are collected by various-type sensors, and an automatic expert system analyzes the facility’s condition.
Today, DYNAMICS SPC in collaboration with «FORC — Photonics» has solved the task on control provision by applying a fiber-optic technology for non-destructive testing purposes and technical diagnostics of columns and tanks at refinery and petrochemical production facilities in operation.
The paper considers application of fiber-optic technology in the COMPACS® systems in order to provide NDT and technical diagnostics of columns and tanks at refinery and petrochemical production facilities in operation.
