INTRODUCTION
This specification defines the general requirements for packaging. This specificatian also forms
an integral part of the order and the requirements given are the minimum that the packaging
must satisfy.
Packaging of a different type when prescribed in the order and/or in attached specifications will
take precedence over this specification.
This specificatians has been prepared in order to gather the types of material handled by the
purchaser into uniform groups. Set out under relevant leadings are the requirements for each
group.
It will therefore be sufficient for the supplier to make up the packaging as required by the
purchaser by referring only to the general section of this specification (Chapters 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
and 7) and the relevant chapter related to the materials with which he is supplying.
Should the supplier be unable to find the equipment he is supplying in this specification, he will
be expected to include packaging in his offer, giving a precise description and prices, basing on
the general criteria laid down in this specification.
For certain materials, the supplier may have his own packaging systems which are more
effective and more economic than those described in this specificatian (e.g. metal cages for
holding sandwhich panels, special containers for corrosive or radioactive materials, etc.). In
these instances the supplier must prescribe his own type of packaging in his offer and give a
separate quotation.
The use of such proposed packaging is subject to appraval by the purchaser.
Packaging will not be returned, unless otherwise specified in the order for special packaging
(e.g. containers for radioactive materials).

1. GENERAL
1.1. Purpose of Packaging
The purpose of packaging is to safeguard materials during transport, handling and storage
against mechanical damage and environmental encroachment (rain, humidity, temperature
variations, frost, salty atmospheres, dust, sand, etc.). With certain materials the purpose is also
to prevent, wherever possible, theft.
Account must be taken of the above factors when making up packaging.

1.2. Liability
The supplier/packer is responsible for all damage and/or loss during transport and storage due
to defects in the packaging or the use of inadequate protective materials. Generally the
purchaser will check on these points at the supplier's premises, the port of embarkation or at the
forwarders. The supplier/packer will be required to repair packaging himself and at his own
expense on location should the purchaser's inspector find that. the packaging is not in
accordance with this specification.
If the supplier does not act in due course or if the shipment is urgently required, the purchaser
reserves the right to have the packaging repaired to meet the present, specification. The costs
incurred will be charged to the supplier/packers. Where damage has occured the purchaser may
have recourse against the supplier/packer if the insurance companys claims inspector should
repudiate any claims owing to inadequate packaging.

1.3. Packaging by a Company entrusted by the Purchaser
If packaging is prepared by a firm entrusted by the purchaser, the supplier of the goods must:

- supply the packer with all the necessary instructions for correct packaging of the materials
(see this specification and any points contained in the order) and the maximum dimensions
of the equipment, from which the overall dimensions can be ascertained;

- allow free access during normal working hours to his premises for the packaging
companies staff;

- provide a covered working area for the construction of the packaging;

- provide the packers with lifting equipment and personnel for any necessary dismantling
work and for placing the materials into the packaging provided and handling the latter;

- draw up a packing list (and list of contents if required) and the despatch documents as
requested by the order.

1.4. Customs Inspection
Customs inspection will normally be requested to be carried out the suppliers and packaging will
therefore be left open, and, closed after the customs inspection.
If during the customs inspection at the suppliers the packaging and or sealed bags are opened,
the supplier must reinstate them including any dehydrating agents. If packaging was undertaken
by a packer entrusted by the purchaser, the supplier will still be required to arrange for the
packer to reinstate the packaging, the sealed bags and any dehydrating agents.

1.5. Classification of Packaging
This specification cover the following types of packaging:

a) reduced packaging
b) domestic
c) overseas
d) special overseas
e) airmail

a) reduced packaging

This applies to packaging for carriage in the country of origin neighbouring countries or on
site" for construction materials which cannot be damaged through falling during transport,
loading, unloading. and handling in store. In this case, packaging limited to the protection of
delicate mechanical parts of the equipment using wooden casing, grease, anti-corrosive
paints, etc. and the possible dismantling of moveable or delicate parts which can then be
placed in boxes or crates according to the instructions given in the relevant chapter.

b) domestic

This applies to packaging for carriage in the country of origin and neighbouring countries by
road or rail, with a limited number of transhipments and storage under cover where required
for a maximum period of 6 months. The life of any dehydrating agents used must be at
least 8 months.

c) overseas

This applies to packaging for carriage by sea and then by road or rail with numerous
transhipments. Storage at destination should be regarded as not undercover. The life of
any dehydrating agents used must be at least 12 months.

d) special overseas

As paragraph c), with a lengthy sea voyage and/or storage in the open for a period
exceeding 6 months in a particularly rough climate (high temperatures and humidity, etc.),
the life of any dehydrating agents used must be at least 18 months.

e) airmail or airfreight

This applies to packaging for carriage by air and then by road and rail with a limited number
of transhipments and storage undercoyer for a limited period.

The type of packaging to be used will be given in the order.

1.6. Tropical Climates
Steps to be taken when making up packaging for tropical climates.

A feature of tropical climates is an atmospheric pressure of 800-1050 mbar, a salt-laden
atmosphere. exceptionally frequent and violent cyclones. and storms and rain of long duration.

Tropical climates may be divided into two main categories:

- hot-humid (forest and savanna)
- hot-dry (desert and steppe)

A) Hot-humid tropical climate

- average temperature 40C
- relative humfdityi 92%

Materials and equipment must be protected against insects and mould. The most damaging
insects are termites.Wooden packaging must therefore be impregnated with creosote or
lined throughout with zinc sheeting. Special field bags of anti-termite type may be used
inside the packaging in pIace of zinc sheeting.
Mould can develop at between 0 and 50C when the relative humidity lies between 80%
and 100%. The most suitable steps to prevent the development of mould are to use
packing materials of an inorganic nature or to treat the surface of the equipment with anti-
mould preparation.
The measures to be taken will be specified in the order.

B) Hot-dry tropical climate

- average temperature 55C
- relative humidity less than 20%
- high exposure to sunlight
- sand and dust storms
- high temperatures

The high ambient temperature and heavy exposure to sunlight are the predominant factors
of this type of climate. The damage caused particularly to machinery, instruments and
electrical equipment, etc., is:

- softening and seepage of compounds
- dessication, shrinkage, and rapid aging of fabrics of organic origin and rubber
- reduction in the properties of insulating materials.

Non-conductive substances should be used as case padding to avoid these problems.
The daily changes in temperature can cause condensation.
The smallest grains of dust or sand are the most dangerous (15 u in diameter).

Damage caused by dust or sand includes:

- increased abrasion on moving parts (bearings, instrument and pivots, etc.)
- scratching of exposed surfaces (e.g. insulating surfaces become rough and lose their
superficial dielectric properties)
- possible corrosion due to salinity and humidity in the dust and sand themselves.

In order to prevent damage of the above kind, action should be taken as described in
Chapter 2.7. (vacuum sealed bags, sealed bags with filter, dehydrating agents, anti-
corrosive papers, etc.).

2. GENERAL RULES
Packaging must be designed to withstand loading and unloading during transport and storage.
The strength of the packaging must always be balanced against the weight of the materials
contained.
The packaging must allow goads to be stacked up a height of 4-5 m. The packaging must be
able to withstand movement on board railway wagons etc.

2.1. Dimensions of Packages
In order to reduce the need for special transportation to the minimum the supplier should, even
at the design and construction stage, limit the dimensions of the equipment, taking account of
packaging, to within the standard clearance gauges for roads and railways (drawing No. 1). The
following examples are the maximum dimensions. far carriage within Europe:

Vehicle clearance length - 11.50 m x breadth 2.50 m x height 2.50 m

railway clearance length - 14.00 m x breadth 3.10 m x height 2.10 m (2.95 m)

maximum weight 20.000 kg ( * )

The person making up the packaging (supplier or specialist company) must conform to these
requirements.

If the above limits have to be exceeded, the supplier or packer must give advance warning to
the purchaser's transport department so that due arrangements can be made for transportation
(permits, suitable transport, etc.)

If transportation of the packaged equipment is to be undertaken in a covered vehicle the
clearance is reduced to the following limits:

width m 2.40, height m 2.30.

(*) This weight limit must be checked in relation to the country of origin, the countries of transit
and the country of destination.

2.2. Paints and Protective Material
Finished surfaces subject to rusting and corrosion must covered, by spraying or dipping, with
easing removable protective material, proof against hydrocarbons and water and compatible
with the materials and surfaces to be protected.
The supplier or the packaging firm must indicate the useful life of the protective material and
provide any further information relating to proper safekeeping of the material and the method of
removal. These indications may be printed directly on the protection or placed on cards fixed to
the material itself. No protective materials may be used on parts of switches, rotors, distributors,
brushes, terminals, connectors, or other non-metallic parts such as friction discs, brakes, rubber,
fabric or leather, where their functioning precludes the use of such materials. Care must be
taken that the protective material is dry before packaging is proceeded with.

This document is the property of Snamprogetti who will safeguard its rights according to the civil and penal provision of the law.

This also applies to carriage undertaken using reduced packaging. All metal parts used in
packaging other than nails must be painted with anti-rust compound as a minimum requirement.
All protected surfaces must be insulated from contact with wood or other hydroscopic materials
by wax or polythene paper or other similar products.
In special cases and with the prior consent of the purchaser, impregnated paper may be used
for covering surfaces and materials subject to corrosion.
These products have the advantage of being easily and quickly removed.
The choice of protective substances is left to the supplier, who will be held liable for corrosion
damage caused to materials.
The useful life of protective materials will be stated in the order.

2.3. Pre-packaging
Items must be correctly prepared, irrespective of the type of packaging used. For this purpose,
any moveable parts must be fixed to the body of the equipment and any delicate parts must be
protected. If the equipment has sharp edges, these must be covered with a soft material so as
not to tear the protecting covering (sealed bag and/or polythene). All accessories liable to
damage must be dismantled and packaged separately.
All outlets and openings into the equipment must be carefully seated and/or covered. Where
equipment. is particularly delicate and susceptible to the climate, dehydrating agents must be
enclosed. Small items must be classified, identified, quantified, weighed, and placed according
to type into waterproof paper bags, sacks. etc.

2.4. Polythene Protection
As a minimum requirement, items within cases must always be covered with a polythene bag
opened at the base to allow for air circulation.
Sealed polythene container may not be used to protect materials against humidity.
Polythene sheeting must be arranged to keep the contents dry from rain, during carriage by
lorry, rail or ship.
The polythene sheets used must be of 0.20 mm minimum thickness and reinforced to withstand
the effects of sun and heat.

2.5. Adhesive Tapes
Adhesive tapes used in packaging must be of a type resistant to weathering, light and solar
heat.

2.6. Metal Ties
Bundles of steel work should be wrapped with galvanized steel strip, held by clamps.

2.7. Sealed Containers and Dehydrating Agent
Where prescribed and far items particularly subject to deterioration as a result of humidity
(swithchboards, electric equipment, instrumentation, oil-bearing apparatus, etc.) heat-insulated
containers complying to US standard MIL B-131 F Class 1 must be used.
To maintain the humidity inside the container at 35% dehydrating agents complying with us
standard MIL D-3464 D, must be placed in the container.

Form code : MDT.GG.QUA.0515 Sh. 01/Rev. 1.94 File code: spcgnrae.dotData file: SPC_IB_GEN_0001_r04_e_f.doc
This document is the property of Snamprogetti who will safeguard its rights according to the civil and penal provision of the law.

The container must be sealed immediately after the dehydrating agent has been introduced. By
way of guidance, the quantity required to maintain a degree of humidity of less than 35% for
about 1 year is stated to be:

unit x m of surface of packaging

The wrapping must be such as to avoid the possibility of water collecting on the wrapping (i.e. to
avoid water penetrating the wrapping through gravity if it is torn).
An important condition for maintaining a long-term atmosphere of low humidity within the sealed
bag in addition to inserting dehydrating agents is to create a partial vacuum.
Using a normal suction pump, the air inside the sealing bag can be reduced by 70 - 80%. The
hole left open for this purpose can then being hot-sealed.
It is inadvisable to create too great a vacuum in the bag which will cause it to adhere to the
apparatus and be torn.
Where apparatus is to be fixed to the base of the case or crate, rubber packings should be fitted
against the holes (the number of holes must be kept to the minimum) and the sealed bag
thereby preventing humidity entering through these holes. To allow for checks on the humidity
conditions, a window must be made (20 x 20 cm) in the upper part of the sealed bag, with
transparent PVC 0.20 mm thick, hot-sealed to the sealed bag and capable of resisting
atmospheric agents. Inside and tied to the apparatus and positioned so that it can be seen
through the window, a small bag (1/2 unit) of dehydrating agent will be placed. Several blue
coloured lines are stamped in special ink on the wrapping of this bag. The ink functions like
litmus paper. If the blue of the lines turns to pink, the atmosphere inside the sealed bag is
excessively humid and the dehydrating agent must be replaced.
The sealed bag must then be repaired or replaced.
The window also facilitates customs inspection without the bag being opened and repairs having
to be made.

2.8. Loading of Materials in the Cases
The materials must be loaded in the cases or in the containers in such a way as to reduce the
volume of the packaging to a minimum. Bathening will also prevent the material from moving
inside during transit. The purchaser reserves the right to refuse packaging that does not comply
with the above requirements.
All apparatus with a base (machines generally, switchboards, control panels, etc.) must be
bolted to the base of the case and/or crate with rubber gaskets in between to avoid mechanical
contact. Battens and supports must be used to ensure that the equipment is held firm.

2.9. Padding
Once the equipment is fitted inside the case, provision must be made to protect the fragile parts
and to fill the empty spaces, where necessary, with inert non-hygroscopic padding, e.g.
expanded polystryne, cushions, blocks, pellets, strips, etc.

2.10. Timber and Ply
The timber to be used for constructing packaging must meet the following requirements:

- quality : solid deal, seasoned and without defects that might weaken it;

- knots : limited number and dimensions. They must be solid and integral with
the boarding;

- boarding : width 12 cm min - 25 cm max..

The walls and coverings of the cases {especially those for overseas and special overseas type
packaging) may be made of marine ply (Douglas Fir ply, bonded with phenolic glue).
Second-hand timber must not be used.

2.11. Nails and Carton Sealing Staples etc.
Nails must be of the flat head type and must be of sufficient lenght to enable them to be bent
over.
Where it is not possible to bend them, but a strong joint is required, spiral nails or staples must
be used.
Metal staples may be used in conjunction with ply. The metal staples must be surface treated
(e.g. copper plated) to prevent them from corroding.

2.12. Metal Reinforcement (strips, squares, plates and angles, bolts and ties) see Drawing No. 2
Strips

The following types of strips can be used:

- plastic
- hardened and coated steel
- surface-treated hardened steel (e.g. copper plated or galvanized)
- stainless steel

Annealed materials may not be used.
The strip must be applied properly stretched with an appropriate device and closed with steel
clips surface treated as the strip or made of the same material.
The corners of the boxes at the points where the strips pass over them, must be reinforced with
steel angles to avoid cutting into and consequent slackening of the strip.

Squares

All cases and crates over 1,000 kg in weight must be provided with a minimum of 3 angle
squares per corner and distributed one far each horizontal external brace.

3. CASES
Cases for packaging of domestic, overseas and special overseas type will normally be of the
same kind of structure.

The differences between the various types being:

- the joining of the boards;
- the thickness of the boards, the reinforcement and the base blocks;
- internal protection.

The common structural characteristics will be explained below, and the details of each type of
packaging will then be listed.
The cases must always allow for handling by fork lift truck; they must therefore be provided with
battens which allow the forks to pass at right angles beneath the longest side.
Base boards must be simply fined. The base must not be covered with tarred paper or polythene
to allow for ventilation and water drain from the container.
The base structure (flats and boards) must be such as to equally distribute the weight of the
apparatus.

Destination countries with a heavy or prolonged snowfall

Cases and crates sent to countries with a heavy or prolonged snowfall must not have battens
underneath which could be used as funners permitting the container to as a sledge. Such a
feature if required will be specified in the order.
A pulling device must also be placed at each end of the parcel.

Categories

For practical reasons, the cases and crates are subdivided into three categories:

Horizontal bracing These, may be external or internal (American type}. The
dimensions and spacing will be proportionate to the dimensions
and weight of the case.

By way of example:

10 x 2.5 cm to 15 x 3 cm section with a maximum spacing of 80
cm.

Cases in the category up to 2.000 kg can be divided into two
types distinguished only by the bracing of the Cover.

TYPE A - with external bracing (see drawing No. 4),
measurements up to 200 x 100 x 200 cm. The width may be
increased by 150-200 cm by inserting 2 or more longitudinal
planks between the cover and the stiffening.

TYPE B - with external bracing (see drawing No. 5),
measurement up to 400 x 150 x 200 cm. In this case, depending
on the width of the, case, 1 or more boards may be inserted
between the cover and the stiffening to underpin the staves, of
the cover.

3.1. Cases up to 500 kg and/or dimensions 100 x 60cm (see drawing No. 3).
Carryiing built crossed bars Where the contents permit cases may be without base slats,
these will be replaced bars by carrying crossbars to permit
movement with a fork lift truck and will also serve as a batten for
lifting ropes. Minimum dimensions of the base bars: 6 x 10 cm.
The carrying crossbars on the boarding and on the cover must
have minimurn dimensions of 10 x 2.5 cm.

Planking Planking must be 2/2.3 cm thick.

Base Base planks must be 3 cm thick.

Bands Each case must be bound with at least two bands.

3.2. Cases up to 2,000 kg and/or dimensions up to 400 x 150 X 200 cm (see drawing numbers
4 and 5)
Base blocks Cases must be provided with battens on the bottom parallel to the
longitudinal access.

The dimensions of the battens as follows:

10 x 10 cm or a weight up to 1.000 kg
12 x 12 cm or a weight up to 2.000 kg

spacing approx. 60 cm.

The section and the space between must be proportionate to the
structural characteristics, dimensions and weight of the product.
The ends of the slats must bevelled at 45 to allow for the
positions of ropes and for moving on snow.

Slats Slats 8 cm thick should be placed crossways beneath the beams,
raise the package for lifting ropes or to allow movement with a
fork lift truck.
The position and number of the slats will be determined in
accordance with the length of the case and the relative centre of
gravity.
The slats must be about twice as wide as they are thick and may
be fixed by screw (preferred), nails or staples.

Base The base boarding must be 4 cm thick and be bolted or screwed
to the base crossbars.

Planks Planks must be laid vertically so as to achieve improved
resistance to superimposed weights.

Stiffening struts Stiffening struts must be placed immediately struts beneath the
cover (10 x 4 cm minimum and 80 cm minimum spacing). Since
their object is to protect the container against the pressures
imposed by the lifting ropes, the dimensions of the struts must be
proportionate to the weight of the package and to its size.

Base The base boarding must be at least 5 cm thick and be bolted or
screwed to the base beams.

Cover The cover of these cases must be supported by a lattice frame
(section approx. 15 x 3 cm). The squares or rectangles in the
lattice may not exceed 40/50 cm at the side, to obtain a
sufficiently resistant cover.

Horizontal bracing This may be external or internal (American type). Section 20 x 4
cm (80 cm max spacing).

3.3. Cases up to kg 20,000 and/or dimensions up to 600 x 300 x 240 h (see drawing No. 6)
Planking 3 cm for domestic, overseas and special overseas type
packaging.
Bottom boards Closed tight and of the following dimensions:

12 x 12 cm for weights up to 6,000 kg.
15 x 15 cm for weights up to 9,000 kg
20 x 20 cm for weights up to 20,000 kg

(*) In the case of exceptional and particularly cumbersome packages (e.g. apparatus weighing
20,000 kg and over), the purchaser will consult the supplier/packer to agree the most
appropriate type of packing.

3.4. Marine
The walls and cover of the cases may also be made of marine ply
with an internal deal frame (as illustrated in drawing No. 7). The
structural criteria is as stated for cases constructed with solid
board.
In practice, the walls and cover may be formed of a squared or
rectangular lattice frame, onto which the marine ply can be placed
externally. The dimensions of the frame will be proportionate to
the dimensions and weight of the apparatus (50 x 70 cm max).
Stiffening slats and a cross-ties must be provided where
necessary. Polythene must be inserted beneath the cover.

Dimensions are as follows:

- Frame section 12 x 4 cm for weights up to 2,000 kg
12 x 5 cm for weights up to 10,000 kg
15 x 5 cm for weights up to 20,000 kg c

- Ply- thickness 10 mm for weights up to 2,000 kg
13 mm for weights up to 10,000 kg
15 mm for weights up to 20,000 kg

3.5. Special Features
The special features distinguishing the various types of cases into domestic, overseas and
special overseas type are as follows:

3.5.1. Domestic Type Packaging

Planking and cover The planking and cover may be made using and simple joints. The
maximum permitted distance between the boards must not exceed 1 mm.

3.5.2. Packaging of Overseas and Special Overseas Type

J oints J oint will be of the tongue and groove type at least 11 mm deep
(see drawing No. 8).

Ventilation holes Several holes 10 mm diameter placed from down upward going
from out inwards, must be drilles in the upper part of the boarding
to permit ventilation.

Internal lining highly impermeable tarred paper able to with stand strong
temperature fluctuations independent of the protection used for
the container.
The tarred paper must be fixed down with metal staples surface-
treated against rust. The joints of the tarred paper must be made
by overlapping and sealing with adhesive tape.

Cover The cover must be lined internally with polythene sheet (top) and
a sheet of tarred paper (bottom) (see drawing No. 9). It has been
found that water penetrating the cracks in the cover and lying on
the polythene sheeting and tarred paper form depressions which
eventually spill into the case.

To avoid this problem, the following steps can be taken:

- increasing the framework used to support the cover or tie in
such a way that the polythene cannot leak in water;

- insert a sheet of hardboard or marine ply (5 mm) on top of
the support for the cover.

In this way, any deforming of the lining can be avoided.

4. CRATES, PALLETS, CARTONS, BALES, BARRELS
4.1. Crates (see drawings Nos. 10 and 11)
The criteria to be adopted for wooden crates as to the thickness of the planks and reinforcement
of the structure are identical to those applying to cases. Crates must be built in such a way that
the planks and spaces between are equal. The base must be fully timbered.
Inside the crates, the equipment must always be covered with a polythene mantle treated to
withstand ultraviolet light and heat, and with protection against any infiltration of rainwater
(arrange the sections by as for roof tiles). The angles of the crate must be reinforced (see
drawing No. 2).

4.2. Pallets
Where prescribed pallets will always be of the non-returnable type.
The dimensions will be agreed from time to time taking into account the various special
requirements either from the transportation aspect or from the equipment to be carried. Poplar
wood may be used for building pallets.

4.3. Cartons
Various types of cartons are available in the trade.
Four types will be considered in this specification

Standard corrugated card

Such cartons are made from a single card of double wall thickness which must be at least 8/10
mm thick.
The cartons will be closed by means of metal staples, adhesive tape and metal or plastic strips.
As a general rule, this type of carton will be used for packaging of the domestic type.

Oiled corrugated car

This type of carton offers moderate protection against humidity and is preferred to the first type
even for domestic type packaging.
It may be closed by means of metal staples, tape and strip.

Bitumized card

These cartons are made of strong compac bitumenized card , double-walled, 2/3 mm thick.
They give good resistance to humidity and are recommended for packing of the overseas type
and containers. The sides and base must be closed with metal while the cover must be fixed
down with strong adhesive tape.
The cartons must be bound with steel or nylon tape.

This document is the property of Snamprogetti who will safeguard its rights according to the civil and penal provision of the law.

Multi-layered wall card

These cartons are particularly strong and resistant to humidity, being composed of various
layers of natural long-fibred kraft, 14 mm thick. They enable equipment weighing up to 300/400
kg to be packaged and relatively heavy loads to be stacked on them.
They are principaly used for packaging of the overseas type and containers.
This type of carton, too, must be sealed with adhesive tape and steel strip and polythene.
Protective angles must be fixed to the carton to avoid the steel strip etc. from cutting into the
carton.
The cartons, (whatever the type), must be equipped with other crossties or pallets depending on
the dimensions and weight of the materials contained.
The crossties or pallets must be connected to the cartons by steel strips etc.

4.4. Bales and Fastenings
Bates will be fastened using galvanized steel wire (diameter 5 mm) with a metal hoop or
galvanized steel cable.
Wood packing or other material must be inserted between the steel wire or the hoop and the
bale to absorb part of the pull of the fastening and prevent the contents of the bare coming
apart. The number of fastenings will depend on the weight and length of the bale but must not
be more than 1.30 mm apart.
No bale may exceed 1,000 kg in weight.

4.5. Metal and PVC Barrels
Barrels with a capacity of less than 100 litres will be packaged in crates or arranged on pallets
protected with a heat-shrunk cover and crosshoops.
Barrels with a capacity of or greater than 100 litres will be sent individually.

can be dispatched already assembled.

If plant is to be dismantled for transport purposes, the details
must be studied in the initial project stage and discussed between
the purchaser and supplier at the time of the offer. The same
procedure must be adopted in the case of speciaI equipment
(such as cold boxed with plant for the prduction of inert gases)
where special clamping methods are required inside the plant
itself. Before dispatch, all plant must be throughly cleaned; any
slag excess welding, burrs, etc. must be removed. All equipment
must also be treated and coated with preservatives as stipulated
in the technical specifications.
Internal surfaces, which must be in contact with the insulation
layer of the furnace and/or chimney, will be treated with protective
drying oil.
All machined surfaces must be carefully protected from
oxydization by means of grease or or other substances
(protective anti-rust resins) that can be readily removed.
If a furnace or boiler is transported already assembled there is no
need for packing as such.
It will be sufficient far any projecting or especially vulnerable parts
which cannot be dismantled to be protected by means of boxing
and binding.
All threaded connections must be fitted with plugs, well greased
and bound with tape.
Flanges must also be covered with discs of wood or faesite"
secured firmly in place to prevent the penetration of foreign
