UNIT PERFORMANCE REPORTING (UPR)
Compliance standards can be strenuous and at times, seem unfair. Keeping up with all the required documentation of every piece of permitted or certified equipment is a daunting task. And let’s face it, nobody wants to do that job. That’s why OTA’s and Kimark’s compliance devices come standard with data logging. And whether it is our equipment or a 3rd party’s, the raw data that is recorded is a headache to digest, which is why we made it simple with our “UNIT PERFORMANCE REPORTS.”
Our reporting system summarizes the recorded data into a user-friendly format that is utilized by operators, field technicians, and environmental specialists for a variety of uses.
OPERATORS utilize UPRs to manage their fleet and maintain optimal performance.
FIELD TECHNICIANS utilize these reports to gain an insightful perspective of how each individual piece of equipment is operating. This report gives the
ENVIRONMENTALISTS like these reports because they include mandatory documentation of unit performance (e.g. operation efficiency, continuous pilot operation, combusted or recovered vapors, etc.). An intriguing aspect of the reports are the inlet pressure graphs that depict upstream pressures, which can indicate the amount of time that pressures were below pressure relieving valves. That way, if the control device or VRU is not operational (because of a power outage, for instance) and it is during those periods where pressures remained below the pressure relieving valves, then venting events never occurred. Therefore, there were no deviations from the given air permit or emission authorization.
Upstream pressure trend; the max pressure relief setting is 4oz and is represented by the red line; when pressures rise above this line, there is the possibility of a venting event
Report accurate operation efficiencies with recorded runtime, idle time, and fault times. Know exactly what the unit is faulting on, how often it faults, and for how long (overall fault time and specific fault times). Replace downtime with uptime by accounting for periods of production that do not trigger unit operation.
Stay up-to-date with your fleet’s performance. Don’t just think you know how your equipment is running, prove it!
With this report at your fingertips, you have the ability to tackle the problem head on and develop a course of action before you ever step foot into the field.
