Switching toward a conscious and data driven Condition Based Maintenance (CBM) has always been the Santo Graal for the maintenance of critical rotating equipment, for which typically OEMs recommend a planned and time based maintenance. Planned maintenance is proven not necessarily preventing from failures, thus impacting the Mean Time Between Failure of a unit, it also in many instances introduces a waste of time and money to perform unnecessary inspection of a unit. CST combines rotating equipment design knowledge with experience in the field, helping end users to take better decision about maintenance, operations and upgrades challenges.
CST received a very important order for a Methane emission control system for one of the world's leading gas infrastructure operator. This new system will contribute to cut the fugitive natural gas emissions from the centrifugal compressors of a pipeline compression station, thus contributing to combat climate change.
CST presented a paper at the 12th Congress of the EFRC in Warsaw on an investigation made by a dedicated test plant with a two stage 800 kW compressor. The work was done to compare the therethical pulsation values calculated with its proprietary multi-physics software with experimental measurements. The research validated the software and allowed also to determine the effect on pulsations of alternative capacity control systems.
Compression Service Technology – CST and Blackstone Industrial decided to joint their capabilities to create a “unique integrated machinery service provider”. The CST’s deep design know-how combined with the Blackstone Industrial’s experience and field/shop capabilities will provide an unparalleed value to the end-users for the whole life-cycle of their assets.

How to lower the OPEX by means of a modern lubrication system that improves machine availability, saves lubricant and keeps the unit under constant and sharp monitoring? Within the workshop "Predictive analysis & 4.0 monitoring for the component and system integrity", Alessio Butini (CST's Sales and Marketing Manager) presented “Cost reduction by means of smart lubrication” where fluid control and digital monitoring converge in the PLS-100. PLS-100 lowers oil consumption, component wearing, jamming of process streams, adsorbed power, downtime for repairs... A lean & modern approach to an ancient need of any motion part.
