"2.1 Seilbahntechnische equipment and components, which in 2003 that have undergone any conformity assessment procedures in accordance with SeilbG"

 

The complementary checks must include:



1. inspection of the main gearbox, hydraulic facilities for power transmission drives (main drive, help drive, emergency driving, mountain drive), hydraulic and pneumatic facilities of brakes for drives and hydraulic facilities of rope clamps and gripping brake; for the first time in 10 years or 20 000 operating hours after first commissioning of the components or equipment, then at least every 5 years, or 10 000 operating hours.

2. non-destructive testing of the mechanical brake for the main drive of the safety brake in the disassembled State. no later than every 10 years.

3. non-destructive examination of the conveyor tension pulley; for the first time within 15 years or 30 000 hours of operation after the first commissioning of the components, then at least every 10 years, or 20 000 operating hours.

4. non-destructive inspection of shafts and Axises of remedial or tension pulley with one side or only on a page full of supporting-acting double-sided storage, which; claimed by the rope clamping force on circular curve for the first time within 15 years or 30 000 hours of operation after the first commissioning of the components, then within 10 years or 20 000 operating hours after the initial examination, then at least every 5 years, or 10 000 operating hours.

If pulleys without safety catch is testing in the expanded state of waves or axes. The expansion of a shaft or axle may be waived if a nondestructive testing of all critical areas of the component in the assembled State and set the deadlines for the next non-destructive tests using a crack growth data. This calculation is based the size of the error, which is currently still available with the applied test methods to determine the theoretical remaining service life of the component under the stress of the operation up to the critical crack growth. The deadlines for the next non-destructive tests turn shall not exceed the theoretical remaining service life and are in case of uncertainties in the acceptance of material properties and operating demands to shorten accordingly. The sensitivity of the investigation, the crack growth account and the determination of deadlines for the next non-destructive tests are to record in the documentation of the review referred to in section 3.

5. non-destructive examination of the axes from at least two selected (eg the highest claimed) pulleys with single-sided storage, whose burden change through the passage of the vehicles, suspended cableway and ropeway of such type, funiculars and ropeway of such type; for the first time within 15 years or 30 000 hours of operation after the first commissioning of the components, then at least every 10 years, or 20 000 operating hours. Deficiencies identified during a test, this test on more selected and, if necessary, on all of the affected type pulleys is to expand.

6 non-destructive testing of all axes of a selected each (E.g. the most highly stressed) support roller battery, low holder Olle battery and AC load battery with power balance between the pulleys. for the first time within 15 years or 30 000 hours of operation after the first commissioning of the components, then at least every 10 years, or 20 000 operating hours. Deficiencies identified during a test, this test on more selected and, if necessary, on all the affected design rolls batteries is to expand.

7 non-destructive test of at least 20 percent, but at least two pieces of detachable terminals at least every 5 years.

The test items are on a rotational basis to select so that each detachable terminal of the cable car will be audited at least every 25 years or 50 000 operating hours. Deficiencies identified during a test, this test on all detachable terminals is to expand.

 



8 non-destructive testing of at least 10 percent, but at least two pieces of fixed terminals at:-Group-cable cars and chair lifts for the first time in 10 years or 20 000 operating hours, then at least every 5 years, or 10 000 operating hours.

-Ski-tows no later than every 10 years or 20 000 operating hours.

The test items are selected on a rotational basis. Deficiencies identified during a test, this test on all fixed terminal of the cable car is to expand.

9 non-destructive testing of at least 20 percent, but at least a piece of the hanger (including the hanger head and, where appropriate, the cabin suspension and the hanger bolt) at cable railways, except for chair lifts; for the first time within 15 years or 30 000 hours of operation after the first commissioning of the components, then at least every 10 years, or 20 000 operating hours.

The test items are selected on a rotational basis. Deficiencies identified during a test, this test on all hanger of ropeway is to expand.

10 non-destructive testing of at least 10 percent, but at least two pieces of the suspension (including the hanger head) at:-chair lifts for the first time in 10 years or 20 000 operating hours, then at least every 5 years, or 10 000 operating hours.

-Ski-tows no later than every 10 years or 20 000 operating hours.

The test items are selected on a rotational basis. Deficiencies identified during a test, this test on all hanger of ropeway is to expand.

11 non-destructive testing of at least 5 percent, but at least two pieces of the drives in the disassembled State in rope orbit; for the first time within 5 years after the first commissioning of the components, then at least once a year.

The test items are on a rotational basis to select so that each drive of the cable car will be audited at least every 15 years or 30 000 hours. Deficiencies identified during a test, this test on all drives is increasing.

12 non-destructive examination of the drives (including the Seilendbefestigungen or the fixtures on the rope) and the gripping brake suspended cableway and ropeway of such design as well as the landing gear and the catch brakes on funiculars and ropeway of such design in the disassembled State. no later than every 10 years or 20 000 operating hours.

13 finding of the spring or gripping brake clamping force; for the first time within 15 years or 30 000 hours of operation after the first commissioning of the components, then at least every 10 years, or 20 000 operating hours.

That is each previously reached time limit binding for the review periods specified in operating hours and years. Hours of operation for the additional checks are those times to understand where the cable car together transported persons or loads, or both. The operating hours should with rope orbit, whose Fahrzeuge rope are operationally detachably connected, makes it easy to be determined that the values read by the operating hours counter be reduced flat rate to 15%.

Ski lifts with low rope guide are no additional checks and perform only the additional checks referred to in Nos. 6, 8 and 10 tow lifts with high rope guide.

For the additional checks referred to in no. 1 are the manufacturer of the test items or qualified specialist companies and for the complementary checks according to Z 2 to 13 accredited inspection bodies are to be used.


For supplementary inspections according to Z 4 to 12, except for those on all sides galvanized hangers (including the hanger head) and except for those in accordance with no. 6 in tow-lifts, nondestructive testing in the form of a Visual inspection is alone in any case insufficient.

The supplementary checks according to Z 2 to 12 have to consider test specifications of the manufacturer of the test items."
