The COMPACS® system for computer monitoring carries out vibration monitoring and analysis of centrifugal compressors by means of the sensors of absolute and relative vibration installed on the outside (on the housing of each compressor bearing) and inside (above the rotor shaft) in orthogonally related directions in order to measure and control radial displacements and axial shift of the shaft.
The sensors of temperature, rotational speed and current consumption are used additionally. It enables diagnosing of technical condition and mode of operation of the compressors. Continuous vibration analysis and monitoring of technical condition of the units have positive results.
Every unit may become "good" in case of timely repair and estimation of its quality according to the unit condition by means of the COMPACS® system for vibration monitoring (both stationary and personal - COMPACS®-Micro), which enables to collect vibrations from all points of the compressor unit and transmit them to COMPACS-NET® diagnostic network of engineering supervision or to the Internet in order to analyze and control safe resource-saving operation.
