Operational Control Procedures (OCP) for Compressors

Once you have managed to evaluate and analyze the various aspects that give rise to impacts in the operation of compressors, it is time that you found a way to control these aspects. How would you do that? By developing an operational control procedure for the working of the compressors. Find out how you should go about this by reading the given case study.

Case Study in the Operational Control Procedure of Compressors

Activity: Operation of Compressors

Identification of Aspects and Impacts (Inputs and Outputs of a manufacturing process/operation):

During the operation of compressors, oil spillage and noise pollution are the significant environmental aspects

Aspects of Compressors: (a) Spillage of oil; (b) Noise pollution

Operational Control Procedure for the Operation of Compressors

Check Points:
Spillage of oil
Key Characteristics: Checking of machines to arrest leakages. Wiping out oil with jute waste keep in drums and its disposal as per legal requirements. Documents to be maintained.
Reference Record: General Logbook or Register

Check Points:
Noise pollution
Key Characteristics: Checking the noise levels periodically. Carrying out regular maintenance for the machines. Going in for modern plants with less noise pollution. Documents to be maintained.
Reference Record: General Logbook or Register

Operational control procedures for compressors include a number of technical terms. So, just for your information, I have put up an article called Operational Control Systems which deals with the various aspects of these procedures.
