Nizhnekamskneftekhim Improves Maintenance and Repair of Process Equipment

Over 430,000 units of technical equipment are operated at PJSC Nizhnekamskneftekhim. To ensure its reliable and uninterrupted operation, the Company specialists work on the development and improvement of the existing system of maintenance and repair of process equipment.

For further development of the existing system of preventive maintenance and increasing the output of high quality products, the prerequisites for starting work on the development of a maintenance and repair system have been developed. In 2018, for the first time, a task force of enterprise services was formed to increase the operational efficiency of maintenance, repair, planning, and providing spare parts and materials. One of the first areas chosen by the task force to improve the automation of equipment maintenance was the testing of a mobile patrolling system at the production of butadiene. The analysis of the work performed showed a number of advantages when using mobile patrolling.

So, for example, the maintenance staff has the opportunity to improve the quality of rounds and inspection of equipment, as well as carry out the photofixation of defects and track deviations of the equipment operation parameters.
Based on the results of this activity, the maintenance and repair department specialists developed specifications and process maps of dynamic equipment, and also carried out pilot-industrial work-out tasks for planning the needs for materials and the automatic generation of 4requests for their purchase.

In order to maintain the operable state of the equipment, the enterprise operates a system of scheduled preventive repairs of all its types. However, the management of the Company decided to make this process more worthwhile, that is, to have a more detailed and comprehensive idea for making a list of equipment which needs repair or replacement of worn-out parts.

For this reason, the maintenance and repair department project group has been formed in the main instrumentation service in 2019, which includes representatives of various services of Nizhnekamskneftekhim - departments of the Chief Mechanical Engineer, Chief Power Engineer and Main Instrumentation unit, as well as IT Dept, Technical Supervision and Wages Control Dept. Together, experts solve problems to increase the operational efficiency of maintenance and repair, deal with planning issues, as well as providing spare parts and materials.
Petrochemical staff plans to apply this experience in other areas.
