English to Portuguese: OPERATIONAL TESTING AND INSPECTION
Source text - English
OPERATIONAL TESTING AND INSPECTION
Gas measuring instruments should be tested in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions before the commencement of operations requiring their use. Such tests, which may include use of a span gas, are designed only to ensure that the instrument is working properly. They should not be confused with calibration. (See Section 8.2.6 above) Instruments should only be used if the tests indicate that the instrument is giving accurate readings and that alarms, if fitted, are operating at the pre-determined set points.
Physical checks should include: -
• Cable.
• Hand pump.
• Extension tubes.
• Connections (for tightness).
• Batteries.
Instruments not passing these operational tests should be re-calibrated before they are returned to operational use. If this is not possible, they should be removed from service and clearly labelled to denote that they are not to be used.
During operations it is important to check the instrument and sample lines for leakage occasionally, since the ingress of air will dilute the sample and give false readings. Leak testing may be carried out by pinching the sample line and squeezing the aspirator bulb.
The bulb should not expand as long as the sample line is pinched.
During extended operations, the operator should determine the frequency at which operational checks should be made.
These procedures should be documented in the Safety Management System (See Section 9.2).
The results of the tests and inspections should be recorded.

TESTE E INSPEÇÂO OPERACIONAL
Instrumentos de mensuração de gás devem ser testados de acordo com as instruções do fabricante antes de começar as operações que requerem o seu uso. Tais testes, que podem incluir o uso de um span gas, são projetados somente para assegurar que o instrumento esteja funcionado corretamente. Estes não devem ser confundidos com calibração. (Veja a Seção 8.2.6 acima) Instrumentos somente devem ser usados se os testes indicam que aquele instrumento esteja fornecendo leituras precisas e que os alarmes, se instalados, estejam operando nos pontos de ajuste predeterminados.
Verificações físicas devem incluir: -
• Cabo.
• Bomba manual.
• Tubulações de prolongamento.
• Conexões (hermeticidade).
• Baterias.
Instrumentos que não passam nestes testes operacionais devem ser recalibrados antes de retornar ao uso operacional. Se este procedimento não for possível, devem ser removidos do serviço e claramente marcados para indicar que não devem ser usados.
Durante as operações é importante que o instrumento e as linhas de amostragem sejam verificados ocasionalmente contra vazamentos, uma vez que a entrada de ar irá diluir a amostra e dará leituras falsas. Testes de vazamento devem ser executados através de apertar a linha de amostragem e comprimir o bulbo aspirador.
O bulbo não deve dilatar-se enquanto a linha de amostragem esteja sendo apertada.
Durante operações prolongadas, o operador deve determinar a freqüência em que as verificações operacionais devem ser feitas.
Estes procedimentos devem ser documentados no Sistema de Gerenciamento de Segurança (Veja a Seção 9.2).
Os resultados dos testes e inspeções devem ser registrados.

CHAP. 7 DROP SYSTEM (Pump protection)

Pressurized units, on request, can be supplied equipped with a protection system, called DROP (Dry Running Operation Protection), which protects hydraulic parts from possible damage which could be caused by overheating of the liquid inside the pump body.
Such overheating can take place owing to causes outside the pump or because the pump stops priming.
The DROP system can be supplied either installed inside the pump body or mounted on the outside. In both cases it consists of a special sensor mounted in contact with the pumped liquid and connected to the motor’s terminal board.
The DROP system is reset using the switch located on the box holding the condenser.
Operation: when the temperature of the liquid inside the pump body reaches 60°C to 70°C, DROP interrupts the power supply to the motor, the pump stops and the pilot lamp positioned next to the switch illuminates.
The pump can start again automatically only if the system cools and if the power supply is disconnected and then connected again.

Restoring operation:
– position the switch to “0”, disconnect the plug;
– rectify the cause of malfunction;
– wait a few minutes, until the whole hydraulic part has cooled;
– position the switch to “I”, reinsert the plug, the red pilot lamp light extinguishes and the pump starts again.
If the red lamp stays on, put the switch to “0”, disconnect the plug and repeat the start-up operations after a few minutes.

The circuitry diagram is shown in Fig. 5.

CAP. 7 Sistema Drop (Proteção de Bomba)

Unidades pressurizadas, a pedido, podem ser fornecidas equipadas com um sistema de proteção, chamado DROP (Proteção de Operação de Funcionamento a Seco), que protege as peças hidráulicas de possíveis danos que poderiam ser causados por superaquecimento do líquido no interior do corpo da bomba.
Esse superaquecimento pode ocorrer devido a causas externas a bomba ou porque a bomba para de escorvar.
O sistema DROP pode ser fornecido quer instalado no interior do corpo da bomba ou montado do lado de fora. Em ambos os casos, consiste de um sensor especial montado em contato com o líquido bombeado e conectado à placa de terminais do motor.
O sistema DROP é resetado usando o interruptor localizado na caixa que contém o condensador.
Operação: quando a temperatura do líquido no interior do corpo da bomba atinge 60 ° C a 70 ° C, o DROP interrompe o fornecimento de energia para o motor, a bomba para e a lâmpada piloto posicionada ao lado do interruptor acende.
A bomba pode partir novamente automaticamente somente se o sistema se resfriar e se a alimentação elétrica for desconectada e depois conectada novamente.

Operação de Restauração:
- Posicione o interruptor para “0”, desconecte a tomada;
- Corrija a causa do mau funcionamento;
- Espere alguns minutos, até que toda a parte hidráulica esfrie;
- Posicione o interruptor para "I", reinsira a tomada, a lâmpada piloto vermelha apagará e a bomba partirá novamente.
Se a lâmpada vermelha permanecer acesa, coloque a chave na posição “0”, desconecte a tomada e repita as operações de partida, depois de alguns minutos.

O diagrama do circuito é mostrado na fig. 5.

CAP. 6 MANUTENÇÃO E PESQUISA DE AVARIAS
PERIGO
Risco de descargas eléctricas
Antes de efectuar qualquer operação de manutenção, desligue a unidade da rede de alimentação eléctrica.

PERIGO
Qualquer operação de manutenção que comporte intervenções na unidade ou no circuito eléctrico deve ser efectuada por pessoal qualificado.

As unidades de pressão, em condições de funcionamento normal, não requerem manutenção.
Aconselha-se, por precaução, a fim de evitar possíveis avarias, a mandar efectuar periodicamente, por pessoal especializado, os seguintes controlos:
– controlo da pressão (ou prevalência): uma diminuição da pressão é sintoma de desgaste da parte hidráulica da bomba;
– controlo da corrente absorvida: um valor da corrente absorvida, superior ao da placa de identificação é sintoma de atritos mecânicos ou anomalias de funcionamento na bomba ou no motor eléctrico;
– controlo da vedação mecânica: verifique a ausência de fugas de líquido, a presença de algumas gotas de líquido deve julgar-se normal; um gotejamento contínuo é sintoma de desgaste ou danificação da mesma;
– controlo da pressão de pré-carga no vaso de acumulação: uma diminuição da pressão de pré-carga no vaso de acumulação determina um aumento de partidas da electrobomba.
O controlo da pressão de pré-carga e o seu restabelecimento devem ser efectuados por pessoal qualificado através da válvula situada no vaso de acumulação, utilizando uma bomba manual ou um compressor com manómetro.
Se a unidade houver de ficar inutilizada por longos períodos (por ex. uma estação inteira), aconselha-se a esvaziá-la completamente, enxaguá-la com água limpa e guardá-la num local seco.

CHAP. 6 MAINTENANCE AND TROUBLESHOOTING

DANGER

Risk of electric shock

Before performing any maintenance, disconnect the unit from the mains.





DANGER
Any maintenance operation which requires interventions on the unit or on the electrical circuit shall be performed by qualified personnel.



Pressure units, in normal operating conditions, require no maintenance.



As a precaution, in order to avoid possible damage, it is advised to periodically carry out the following controls by qualified personnel:



- Pressure monitoring (or prevalence): a decrease in pressure is a symptom of wear of the hydraulic part of the pump;

- Control of current drawn: a value of current drawn, that is above the nameplate value, is a symptom of mechanical friction or of a malfunction of the pump or of the electric motor;



- Control of mechanical seals: Verify the absence of fluid leaks, the presence of a few drops of liquid shall be judged to be normal; a continuous drip is a symptom of wear or damage;





- Control of pre-load pressure in the accumulator vessel: a decrease in the pre-load pressure in the accumulation vessel determines an increase of the start-ups of the electric pump.



The control of the pre-load pressure and its restoration must be carried out by qualified personnel using the valve located on the accumulator vessel, using a hand pump or a compressor with a pressure gauge.




If the unit is to be unused for long periods (for ex. an entire season), it is advisable to empty it completely, rinse it with clean water and store it in a dry place.
