Challenge:

Operational and reliability issues with a critical turbo machinery asset were creating long-term production challenges for the in-house maintenance and reliability team of our customer’s large chemical facility. 

Solution:

Spartan’s senior machinery asset specialists performed an analysis on the critical high-speed compressor and recommended an immediate bearing design change. Temporary measures were implemented, migating vibration while increasing production until planned shutdown and permanent bearing changes could be made. Spartan’s solution allowed the plant to continue to operate until shutdown and then after design change increase production by 25%.
