More than two thirds of the unplanned downtime of reciprocating compressors can be attributed to issues with the wearing components in a cylinder. Early identification of these issues combined with a reliable quantification of the level risk and impact on production and/or power consumption allows for proactive scheduling of maintenance. This may mean stretching out the runtime despite rising discharge temperatures in order to align the work with a prescheduled maintenance interval or changing out components earlier to avoid future unscheduled downtime oil field assets.
Enalysis is a web-based predictive SaaS (Software as a Service) program combining geometric software models of compressors and thermodynamic principles to analyze operating data and accurately calculate all relevant compression KPIs for reciprocating and screw compressors. Highly developed proprietary algorithms are used to determine the exact operating status of a compressor and each individual cylinder from both a production and maintenance viewpoint.
