SAFETY
TXT-10004141/A1

2.1

General Safety
High voltages, mechanical, chemical, thermal, pressure, noise and stored energy hazards can be
present in ASEP Elmar equipment. Therefore, pay special attention to safety when working with
this equipment.
Meet all applicable codes, laws and local field regulations (including environmental and
additional owner/user company policy). This manual contains recommendations, but
should not be assumed to satisfy all requirements of legal regulations.
Read and understand each item in this manual and follow all procedures, precautions
and advice exactly - never take short cuts. Always consider your safety and that of others.
Only use the equipment within its design scope to avoid damage or dangerous situations.
This manual (in its most current revision) is a minimum requirement for all persons working with
ASEP Elmar equipment. All other current and applicable documents such as certification,
drawings, bill of materials, vendor documentation, etc, should be readily available at the worksite.

2.1.1

Employee responsibility

2.1 General Safety

Never leave "operation-ready" equipment unattended.


Keep equipment clean (accumulated dirt and dust can hamper unit operations and may
increase the risk of ignition).
Correctly maintain and use equipment, apparatus, tools, and dangerous substances.
Wear personal protection equipment (PPE) where necessary; for example gloves and
protective footwear.
Never work alone if there is a possibility of an accident.
Keep loose clothing and long hair well away from moving mechanical parts.
Remove rings, wristwatch, etc, before working.
Never disconnect, change or remove safety devices, and use such devices correctly.
Be aware of all emergency equipment and procedures (such as alarms, abandon ship,
etc.) and make sure they are in place and valid.
Do not use the equipment after an emergency without verifying that the cause of the
emergency has been removed or rectified.
Immediately inform the employer and other workers of any situation that represents a
serious danger to safety and health, and of any shortcomings in protection arrangements.
Plan all operations including interdependencies with other equipment operations
If equipment is tied down using rope/line/chains, attach a "flag" to signal their location.
During installation, maintenance and/or equipment inspection:
where possible, make sure electrical/mechanical equipment is switched off completely,
and use a decal or similar to prevent unauthorized starting;
always relieve pressure before working on hydraulic and/or pneumatic systems.

2.1.2

Employer responsibility
Define the required competency of personnel working on the equipment (including
supervision) and provide the required consultation, information and training.
Ensure that only trained, qualified and competent personnel can work on the equipment.
Ensure adequate safety equipment and emergency procedures are available (fire
extinguishers, PPE, escape routes, etc.), and that personnel are trained to use them.
Ensure a suitable program for installation, operation, maintenance, periodic inspection
and testing of the equipment is defined, adhered to and recorded.
Do not allow work to proceed until a thorough examination and risk assessment of the
work site and equipment has been done. The examination should assess (as a minimum)
the condition of the work site and all critical components, plus the equipment structure.
Only give approval to proceed when controls to manage potential causes are in place and
measures are taken to mitigate potential consequences.

FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION

4.1

Introduction
The AirPack C produces compressed air for sites requiring large amounts of pneumatic energy.
The main energy source is a 54 kW Caterpillar C4.4, 4-cylinder diesel engine, naturally apirated.
It drives a Rotorcomp EVO9-NK-G compressor that can provide up to 5 m/min (177 cfm) of air
or a nominal pressure of 10 bar (145 psi). The engine is equipped with either spring, pneumatic
or hydraulic starter. The engine and exhaust gas are water-cooled and the coolant, along with the
compressors oil and supply air, are air-cooled over forced-air heat exchangers (radiators).
The unit is CE certified for Zone 2 ATEX operation.
See Appendix 1: Specifications on page 131 for specifications.

Engine safety system


The engine safety system serves as:
An automatic shut-off system in case of an over-speed situation caused by ingress of
hydrocarbon gases.
An automatic shut-off device in case of low engine oil pressure (<0.5 bar (7.25 psi))
An automatic shut-off device for high coolant temperature >+100 C (>+212 F) and high
exhaust temperature >+200 C (>392 F)
A manually controlled shut-off device in case of an emergency stop
The engine safety system consists of two main sub-systems which monitor the engine oil
pressure:

tension which turns the starter, which in turn rotates the engine.
b) Air starter: is activated from a button on the control panel. Activating the button opens a
pneumatic valve, and rig air turns the starter, which in turn rotates the engine.
c) Hydraulic starter: is activated from a button on the control panel. Activating the button
opens a hydraulic valve, and hydraulic accumulator pressure turns the starter, which in
turn rotates the engine.

4.3.4

Exhaust system
The exhaust gases are led from the engine through an exhaust gas cooler, flame trap and silencer
(muffler) to the exhaust pipe which exits from the side of the unit. These components remove
excess heat, soot and sparks from the exhaust which could otherwise ignite an explosive
atmosphere near the exhaust outlet.
The exhaust gas cooler cools the exhaust by circulating engine coolant through its heat
exchanger.

4.4

Compressor (Pneumatic) system


Compressed air is provided by a directly driven compressor. Ambient air is drawn into the main
compressor through an air intake filter. It is then compressed to 10 bar (145 psi) in compression
chamber where cooling/ lubricating oil is injected for supply. The supply air from the compressor
passes through a separating tank and an air /oil separator filter to remove excess oil. The air is
finally cooled by an air-cooled heat exchanger and further dried by passing through a cyclone air
dryer (see Figure 4.6).
A part of the compressed air is used to activate a pneumatic cylinder which regulates the engine
speed, dependent on air consumption requirements.
Two air outputs are available for site consumption use. See belowFigure 4.7.
On air starter equipped units, rig air from the site provides air through a separate system for
powering the starter system.
The auxiliary pneumatic system is used to activate the ENGINE SAFETY system and EMERGENCY
STOP circuit. It is powered by a separate 225cc compressor and is equipped with its own air
cleaning and regulating components.
On hydraulic starter equipped units, an air-operated oil pump can charge the hydraulic
accumulator. This air-operated oil pump can be driven by rig air or by the auxiliary pneumatic
system.

If shutting down for safe maintenance, activate the EMERGENCY STOP button, and tag it with
a maintenance warning.

Emergency stop
The AirPack C has two modes of emergency stop:

System (automatic), which is caused by a system condition

6.4.1

Manual emergency stop


The unit has an EMERGENCY STOP button. In an emergency, push this button to immediately stop
the engine. This releases the air and oil pressure from the engine safety system, and chokes the
diesel air inlet and sentinel fuel valves.
After resolving the emergency situation, perform a pre-start inspection (6.1 Pre-start checklist),
and then restart the unit (6.2 Power up).

6.4.2

System (automatic) emergency stop


For some engine alarms, the system will automatically shut the engine down. This shutdown
procedure is triggered by one or combination of the following:
Low oil pressure: <0.5 bar (<7.25 psi)
High engine coolant temperature (exceeds 106 C (223 F))
High engine exhaust temperature (exceeds 200 C (425 F))
An engine overspeed situation: >2300 rpm. Excessive rpm caused by ingress of
explosive gases into the engine intake will increase intake vacuum, causing the Sentinel
valve to trip and cut off intake air.

6.5

Charge hydraulic starter accumulator


If the unit has been shut down and there is insufficient pressure to restart the unit, the starter
accumulator can be pressurized by using the hand pump or by using the air-operated oil pump
running on rig air.
Once the engine is running, the air-operated oil pump can also be utilized without rig air to
recharge the accumulator before shutting the engine down.

7.1

Introduction
Only qualified and trained personnel should perform maintenance on ASEP Elmar wireline winch
units. The maintenance procedures described here include:
Scheduled periodic (e.g. cleaning, inspecting and testing components, filling fluid levels
and lubricating moving parts)
Corrective (troubleshooting and repairing any malfunctions, plus calibrating/adjusting)
Exchanging parts (for different operation requirements)
The AirPack C can experience extreme forces and rugged conditions, so certain scheduled
maintenance is regularly required to prevent damage to the equipment and potential hazards.
Inspections and tests should be carried out daily before working with the AirPack C unit, but
regular maintenance must be performed according to the number of hours the AirPack C has
been run. Running hours should be logged by the AirPack C operator following a strict discipline
to ensure maintenance activities are carried out on time (an example running hours log form is
provided in the Appendices to this manual). ASEP Elmar recommends basing the service
intervals on hours of running; you may prefer to use calendar time (weeks, months).

Certified assemblies

7.3

OEM components
Certain components of your AirPack C are complete assemblies or subsystems supplied by
Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEM) than ASEP Elmar. Examples are measuring heads, air
conditioning units, motor-generator sets. The routine servicing schedules and instructions for
these components are usually not included in this User Manual, but supplied separately in the
Documentation Package for your unit. Ensure you can find this supplementary documentation,
and make yourself familiar with its contents, particularly the required periodic maintenance
schedules for these components.

Your AirPack C may include assemblies which are certified separately from the complete unit
certification (all certificates are included in the Documentation Package for your unit). These
assemblies (examples are winch drive motors and power unit transformers) may only be serviced
by ASEP Elmar service personnel, otherwise the certification (and possibly the warranty) for the
complete unit becomes invalid. A certified assembly is identified by its own data plate with serial
number, and is listed as a single top-level part number in the drawings and spare parts lists. If a

Check/fill engine coolant


For optimum engine cooling, regularly check the coolant level. When filling the radiator always
keep in mind that the volume will increase when the engine coolant is hot. Therefore, only fill to
the bottom third of the coolant sight glass. If the coolant is overfilled, excess coolant will be forced
out of the coolant overflow valve during operations.
NOTE: For cold weather operations, ensure the cooling system is filled with anti-freeze rated to
the minimum temperature expected; for example -20 C or -40 C.

WARNING

TXT-10004255/A

COMPRESSED AIR
Air and/or particles under high pressure can cause severe injury, particularly to the eyes.
Never connect/disconnect a compressed air coupling without first removing all pressure from
the connection.

To connect/disconnect a compressed air coupling:


a) Shut off the nearest valve on the supply side of the coupling.
b) Release all pressure on the consumption side of the coupling, either by operating the
control or appliance, or by slowly opening a valve on the consumption side.
c) Then with eyes protected or at a safe distance from the coupling, carefully connect/
disconnect the coupling.

WARNING

AirPack C User Manual

Appendix 6: Running hours log book


TXT-10004509/A

Like all machinery, the AirPack C needs to be serviced at regular intervals. The work to be
performed at each interval is described in more detail in the Maintenance section of this manual.
The specific service intervals are:
Daily (once every 24 hours when the AirPack C is in use)
After job maintenance (after completion of each wireline job)
300-hour service (after 300 hours of wireline winch operation)
600-hour service
900-hour service
1200-hour service

Appendix 6: Running hours log book

1500-hour or annual service


Even if there is automatic logging of the number of hours the AirPack C is in operation, it is still
important to manually record all hours that the wireline winch is "running".
It is also important to record the number of hours and the date at which each of the services (100,
300, etc.) is actually carried out. To make this easier, ASEP Elmar provides with this manual (see
page 143) a blank form for recording the running hours, and the interval-based services planned
and actually carried out.
NOTE: Every organization has its own rules and systems for logging running hours and service
activity. The form and procedures described here are no more than a suggestion for a
simple running hours and service logging system.
Because the service intervals are primarily aimed at the mechanical components, we recommend
logging all hours that mechanical components are in use. In other words, from the moment the
AirPack C enters stand-by prior to operations, to the moment the AirPack C is shut down.
NOTE: If the running hours for major subsystems of the AirPack C are different (e.g. the power
pack or engine are run for longer hours than the winch module), then log the usage hours
for each subsystem on separate forms, so that the service is carried out no earlier than
needed on the less-used subsystem.
Keep all log forms in a special folder, and make sure that the maintenance engineer knows where
to find this folder. Make sure that the lower section is properly filled-in whenever the UniTruck gets
an interval service (100, 300, etc hours).

Check off each item as it is drained, adding your initials.

5.

6.

Add any items that are present on the machine, but not on this list.

7.

Tag out the unit or component to warn against starting before refilling.

8.

Place this checklist in a prominent place on the machine (e.g. in the cabin, in a weatherproof
envelope attached to the main operator station, etc.)

Refilling:
9.

Refer to the maintenance instructions or specifications pages of the manual for this machine,
for the quantity and specifications of the required fluids.

10. Refer to the maintenance instructions for the procedure to check and replenish fluids for
each of the reservoirs, systems and components.
11. Replenish the fluid in each of the items on the reverse side of this page, remembering to
bleed the system of air and again replenish if necessary.
