3MAINTENANCE OF GATESThe gates might have been well designed and sturdy and timely inspected but if the follow up action is not taken, the gate will not run smoothly. Hence periodical maintenance should be done with in prescribed timing..

7LUBRICATIONVarious parts of Gate are required to be lubricated by using proper Grade of lubrication.Lubrication schedule has been given in the Table .Approximate quantity of lubricant shall be kept ready which may vary as the number of gates. However the required quantity can be ascertained by experience.
8LUBRICATIONIn the Table, the lubricants grade mentioned are of INDIAN OIL CORPORATION. However equivalent grade of any Reputed make may be utilised.

11APPLICATION OF LUBRICANTS The wire ropes should be cleaned and dried and a jet of air or wire brush is used prior to application of lubricantsThe brush is dipped into the Lubricants to be applied.It may also be applied by hand with leather gloves especially when a heavy, on flowing lubricants is applied.Lubricants should be slightly heated to get a smoother and better application.
15WIRE ROPES1. Shifting the wire ropes at point of clamping position on Drums and cutting its end.2. Lubrication of wire ropes.3. Maintenance of wire ropes can be carried out As per I.S However some of details given in next slide.
16WIRE ROPESLubrication shall be free from harmful substances such as acids &alkalis.It should be light grade that may penetrate between the wires &strands of the ropes before being wiped off or absorbed by surface dirt.Cardium Compound is used as during manufacturing of wire ropes are fully lubricated including fibre core &layers to reduce internal abrasion to exclude moisture and delay corrosion.In service the initial lubricant will tend to dry out and therefore it is desirable to lubricate all ropes at regular interval

22PAINTING NEED FOR PAINTING A. Iron and steel structure exposed to sun, rains and air are deteriorated due to corrosion effect.Once corrosion set in, it goes on continuously eating metal.Only 1.6 to2.0 mm corrosion allowance is provided in design of gates. Therefore it should be regularly painted on Upstream and Downstream sides as indicated in Table
23TABLE SR NO MANE OF GATES PART TO BE PAINTED PAINTS REOMMENDED FREQUENCY1Gate leaf-UPSTEAM SIDEAnticorrosive black H.D. of renowned makeTwo coats/three coats once in a year or as required.2Gate leaf-Downstream side &all Other parts except Hoist covers and the barsAnticorrosive black L.D. of renowned makeSingle coat /two coats once in a year or once in two years depending upon the condition.3Hoist coversPrimary coat-Red OxideFinal coat-Blue enamel or dowel deep orange.Once in a year.4Railing pipesPrimary coat-Red oxideFinal coat- Aluminum oxideOnce in a year5Final coat- Aluminum oxide
24NOTEPainting should be done by adopting proper painting procedure prior to which scraping, chipping etc.should be done and vegetation developed should be removed.Brass plates and rubber seal should not be paintThe paints to be used depend on site situation i.e. whether water is to acidic or basic, Dams located near to sea.etc.Painting should be carried out after drying of first coat and before applying paint, it should be perfectly cleaned &free from moisture,dust.etc,

31ELECTRICAL PARTS Electrical cables should be checked for puncture. Cable clamps and lugs should be checked, tightened or replaced, if found faulty.Contacts of main switch should be checked.Overload relay may be checked and tested and put in operational condition.Check wiring, contacts of starter and tighten as required. Burnt or worn out may be replaced.
33ELECTRICAL PARTSCheck the operation of Electromagnetic brake and clean periodically the plunger and barrel as deposition of dust or dirt will make chattering noise and hammering.Adjust brake shoes depending upon wear and tear of shoes.If magnetic coil is found burnt then it should be replaced.
34CONTROL ROOMCheck the digital indicators are in working condition, if it is not in working condition, gate could not be operated /seen from the control room.3/25/2017
38ELECTRICAL PARTSCheck the operation of Limit switches and if, not in working condition, it should be checked for proper contact with dial or wiring.T.P.I.C. should be checked for proper contact of all three phase otherwise single phasing will result in burning of motors.
