Risk and Hazard Analysis

1. Humid Air flows into the System
Porous Seal
Moist air can flow into the system at the porous points. The seal must be checked according to the maintenance schedule.

Pressure gauge damaged
Moist air flows through the damaged pressure gauge past the adsorber directly into the system. Rough or improper handling may damage the housing.

2. Protection Adapter is damaged
Material Resistance

Temperature Range
The ambient and operating temperatures should not exceed or exceed the specified range, otherwise the protective adapter may be damaged.

Improper Handling
Incorrect or improper handling can damage the protection adapter. It is important to pay attention to the recommended installation.

Strong Vibrations
Strong vibrations of the system can damage the protective adapter.

Gewinde vom Adsorber und von Zubehörteilen wird beschädigt

3. Thread from the Accessory or Adsorber is damaged
When mounting the adsorber as well as the valve part on the system, the threads must be slightly wetted with oil. Failure to lubricate the threads can lead to rubbing of the individual threads and is no reason for complaint.




Maintenance Plan

1. Check Seal for Wear

Check    The O-rings supplied with the protection adapter must be checked for perfect condition. For this, the seal should be examined for brittleness.
Cycle    Annually
Measures    If there is any damage, the seal should be replaced.

2. Check pressure gauge for damage

Check    Check the pressure gauge for damage, especially on the plastic housing.
Cycle    Annually
Measures    If the pressure gauge is damaged, the entire protection adapter must be replaced.

3. Optical control of the Protection Adapter

Check    The adapter must be visually checked for damage. Damage can occur due to various environmental or operating conditions or improper handling.
Cycle    Annually
Measures    If the protection adapter is damaged, it should be replaced to ensure full functionality.

4. Replacement of Wearing Parts

Check    The wear parts, in particular the seal, are to be checked with respect to their condition.
Cycle    Biennially
Measures    Regardless of the result of the test, it is recommended to replace the wear parts to ensure smooth operation.
