Proven Methods For Evaluating The Health Condition Of Piston Compressors.
MetadataShow full item record
Very often, especially in the oil, gas, and chemical industry, the efficiency of a plant depends on the reliability of reciprocating compressors. Telemonitoring systems can help to make the shutdowns and outages for maintenance purposes predictable. Additionally, consequential damages can be avoided by early detection. This paper describes different methods of evaluating the condition of a particular system. Practical examples from more than 10 years of experience with an online telemonitoring system for reciprocating compressors are presented as proof for the effectivity of permanent online operations monitoring.
