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.

  

EAC EX 1
the measurement of infrared radiation emitted by a body (also defined by the irradiation time). Thanks to this acquisition it is possible to display bidimensional values of absolute ones and of temperature variations of the objects, regardless of their lighting in the visible field.

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.
