The developed models and determined mechanisms of initiation and development of vibration and other processes accompanying operation of units of petrochemical complex enable their normalization in order to determine relative boundaries between different conditions of the units.
Experimentally proved fact underlying the methodology of normalization of machinery vibration parameters is that under normal operation of various units the values of vibration parameters are below certain values which can be used as the limits.
The developed methodological approaches and firmware of vibration monitoring of condition enable to liquidate fundamental causes of equipment failures (LiFCF technology), minimize the flow of requirements for maintenance, formulate and implement the strategy for minimal cost diagnostics of tens of thousands of bearings, several thousands of pumps, electric motors, couplings, reduction gears, dozens of compressors and air coolers of more than 350 types. Thus, methodological approaches and firmware concerned made a major contribution to the company profitability on the basis of resource-saving safety.
