EAC EX Certification

G.S.M. RX/800 GEARBOXES RECEIVED A NEW AND IMPORTANT RECOGNITION

 

EAC Certification is valid in the five member States of Eurasian Customs Union: Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan.

The Directive which regulates the production of equipments (which will be working in areas subject to explosion hazards) depends on 012/2011 technical regulations. 

EAC EX Certificate is the result of the compliance with TR-CU 012/2011 regulations and it is comparable to ATEX Certification.

ANALYSIS OF LUBRICANTS

The analysis of lubricants is a very important procedure, it allows a clearer understanding about the state of the mechanical components and, therefore, the evaluation of their operation and condition. It enables us to:

  • evaluate whether the lubricant is still suitable for use (from a chemical and physical point of view);
  • check the percentage of metal particles in the lubricant film;
  • control the viscosity, the acidity, the presence of moisture and non-metallic contaminants.

REVAMPING AND MAINTENANCE

Gearboxes and geared motors revamping and maintenance offer a complete problem diagnosis, performing operations such as:

  • gears and bearings substitution (also of big sizes);
  • seal rings substitution;
  • gears, wheels and gearbox parts designing and producing;
  • damaged gears substitution and assembling of new ones;
  • cast iron, aluminium and steel housings and flanges substitution;
  • bearings supports substitution.

NON-DESTRUCTIVE TESTS

Non-destructive tests (NDT) are a series of controls and readings, which are very useful during the gearbox revamping and offer the following benefits:

  • analysing the surface wear of the gears to know if they are still fit for use;
  • verifying the integrity of welded (or not welded) housing and/or flanges, without destroying them.

Basically, the aim of non-destructive tests (NDT) in gear units is to identify the presence of superficial and structural defects. NDT commonly used are:

  • MT (magnetoscopic) for wheels and pinions;
  • UT (ultrasonic) or RT (radiographic) for housings and covers.
