In our Vacuum unit, in only one Train we are facing the problem with Vacuum breaking intermittently from the past 2 months or so. And the point to note here is this train was under S/D in October 2023 only and again started on November 1st and from December 31st 2023 we are facing this issue.So, what maybe the issue, please help

What is the equipment used to pull vacuum?

Can you share a record, Pressure vs Time?

What actions are taken by operators to recover the vacuum?

Can you give some information about the products and split top/bottom and operating conditions?

Can we ask for a PID/PFD?

What type of operation were done during S/D?

More details = better replies.


Describe in detail what you mean by "problem with Vacuum (sic) breaking intermittently".  You have given us . . . nothing.


SWAG - something is leaking in air or something is plugged.
