To ensure the reliability of production it is necessary to be acquainted with technical condition of operated equipment in any time, to know exactly the assemblies with critical technical condition and to assume the measures in time to prevent emergency situations. Production output of petrochemical enterprises makes comprehensive technological process, which includes a few hundred units of technological equipment. Failure of any elements operation in the process flow can lead not just to quality or production volume decrease, but to emergency breakage.
Prediction of such failures can be carried out just in the case of comprehensive monitoring of a whole unit, including monitoring of dynamic equipment (pumps, compressors) and static equipment (columns, reactors, reservoirs, furnaces).
The COMPACS® system uses widespread methods of non-destructive testing: vibration, acoustic emission, thermal, electrical, vortex-current, acoustic, optical, and, in automatic mode, carries out the assessment of machinery equipment technical condition, and so ensuring displaying current technical condition by color pictogram, gives warning to the personal with speech transaction and recommendations for the nearest urgent actions, which have to be carried out to ensure equipment operation without breakdowns. Usage of these methods together, not separately, allows to control any equipment.
Machinery equipment with the stationary system COMPACS® allowed to eliminate breakdowns and exclude "sudden" failures, occurred in the places, where the nucleation and development of the malfunctions up to its critical level can`t be traced and, as a result, causes an emergency situation.
