Challenge

Performance improvement through upgrading of an old unit which has at present:

  • High vibration levels upon certain process conditions
  • Missed production targets due to high absorbed power
  • High bearing temperature on gearbox

Solution

  • Site survey, gathering data from personnel & DCS
  • Action list including upgrade on seals, balancing drum and gearbox bearings
  • Study possible efficiency increase to improve plant productivity

Result

Study in progress
