In order to ensure a safe and efficient operation of LDPE plants, a high level of expertise in sound and vibration engineering is required. Reasons include, e.g. operating conditions in LDPE processes with a discharge pressure of up to 3,500 bar, structural specifications that makes vibration mitigation measures even more challenging and typical operating mechanisms of a reciprocating compressor. Due to these conditions, vibrations and pulsations have a considerable influence on your assets and may cause unplanned downtime with loss in revenue streams.
Hence, the safe operation of LDPE plants is a challenging engineering task and has top priority!
There are two states where special care about sound and vibration engineering is essential:
- Commissioning of a new plant
- Revamp of existing plants
No matter whether it is the commissioning of a LDPE plant or modifications to existing plants. The unique composition of all components create an acoustic model, which shows an individual behavior. Due to an unfortunate operation condition resonance effects can occur which trigger destructive forces within the piping system.
