Testing Pans For BGI 601

Helpful hints for the testing of casting, transport and slag ladles can prevent accidents. Pans must be examined indicate that numerous State and follow regulations such as, for example, the BGR 500. Many different specifications end but mostly in confusion and misunderstandings. To avoid this, the BG information 601 for the testing of pans has been created. She should ensure that casting, transport and slag ladles are judged accordingly often and in the correct scope of the tests. Thus can be eliminated confusion and finally avoided damage or accidents.

What is tested? Of course, the BGI 601 not deals with the testing of frying pans. It is casting, transport and slag ladles, which are intended for the reception and transport of fire-liquid mass, such as molten metal. Such pans are used in foundries, steel mills and metal smelters. Who should test? The end of the test person must be able to evaluate the operational safety of the tested pan. It is considered qualified”if it has the experience in the field of casting, transport and slag ladles. She must be also the audit-related risks consciously and according to BetrSichV with the State occupational safety and health regulations, the accident prevention regulations and the generally accepted rules of technology”to be familiar. What is tested? In each examination, it arrives in good condition of all components and facilities, as well as their proper Assembly.

Also the assessment of all safety devices in terms of functionality and completeness is particularly important. Following inspection types with different requirements and volumes there are: the daily inspection, Visual, functional and midterm, the main test, the extraordinary test the daily inspection should include the employees into a complete workflow. With noticeable defects can be eliminated even before the naked eye. This procedure is not necessary. The Visual, functional, and midterm is a less extensive version of the examination. The two tests examine the following conditions and components: marking load-bearing suspension truss beam bolt/screws arms lifting lugs Handwheel to gear tray/bandage/ribbing casting snout heat shield mounting arm locking Handwheel backup any additional devices and equipment including cracks, deformations, integrity or corrosion. The examination contains extensive additions compared to the Visual, functional and midterm. The results of these two types of testing must be documented. An extraordinary test can be done for various reasons: after repairs after changes of the original state after detecting damage or special events for this Evidence and testimonies of strength calculation, material, and Schweissguten must”exist. When checked? The frequency of checks is among others dependent on the age of the pan. After the start of the commissioning function – or midterm take place in the first and second year per a sight. From the third year of using main and intermediate alternate annually. It may cause extraordinary tests yet every time, if, for example, damage during the daily inspection.
