C2SAT communication AB Erik Dalin 09A Assembly Manual 4m Radome (501_1730).pdf

Introduction
The Assembly manual for 4 meter radome provides a description of the procedure of radome
assembly. The radome consists of 11 panels which form a rigid sphere shell that protects the antenna
from the marine environment. It is composed of pentagonal shaped FRP panels with a foam-sandwich
structure. The panels are bolted together to form a truncated sphere with stainless steel bolts.

1 GENERAL
 Radome assembly should be operated by the qualified installation team.
 The chief of installation team should check the goods (panels, fasteners, washers, etc.) in the crates
according to the Packing Lists.
 All workers who work in high altitudes must wear safety belt or safety lines to prevent falling
accidents.
 Define a scaffolding assembly scheme (steel pipes or bamboo poles) according to the installation site.
 Extinguisher should be putted on site. Smoking or open flames is not allowed on the site.
 Check the weather forecast in advance. Do not perform the installation if wind velocity is over 20m/sec.
 Estimated installation time: 2 days
 Each panel weighs about 35 kg. The weight of the complete radome is 410 kg.
 The service hatch/door to the radome is 60x100cm.

2 RADOME INSTALLATION
2.1 Preparation for installation
 Equip the assembling staff.
 Check that ladders, scaffolding and crane used for installation is available on site.
 Check that all parts of radome on the Packing List (panels, fasteners, washers, etc.) have arrived on
site.
 Check that all tools and other materials for radome installation on the Packing List have arrived on
site.

2.2 Radome door


The radome has a door on one side which is used to enter the radome. It is important that you
assemble the radome so that the radome door is located towards the stern of the ship.

2.3 Assemble panels of layer 1


Remove the PVC packing film after taking out of the Base Panels from the crates.

2.3.1 Bottom rim sealing


Put a piece of hard sealing rubber gasket on the platform where the Base Panels will be placed.
Put base panel on sealing gasket, and tighten the base bolts.

2.3.2 Panel to panel sealing tape


Apply sealing rubber tape on the joint edges the Base Panels when they are assembled together.

Panel-to-panel joint is an overlapping joint. Put 2 pieces of rubber sealing tape on both sides of bolt
along panel-to-panel joint. Tightening the bolts will compress the sealing tape.

2.3.3 Panel assembly


Assemble the Base Panels according to the Panel Assembly Sequence Drawing in chapter 4.
Start with the door panel and than put the panel 1:1 to the left, continue with 1:2 etc.

Tighten base bolts initially with spanner. Apply a momentum to all base bolts of 50Nm ± 10Nm.
Tighten the panel bolts with spanner on the edges of the panels of layer 1.

Continue assembling all base panels until layer 1 is fully assembled.

2.4 Assemble panels of layer 2


A fold-up ladder (and/or scaffoldings) will be necessary for the assembly of panels of layer 2
(and the zenith panel). Make sure that the ladder is long enough to reach the top layer. Make sure
that the ladder can be extracted through the service door in the radome after the assembly is
finished. See chapter 6 for suggested ladder dimensions.

Assemble the panels according to the corner label of the panels, use the same principle as layer 1
regarding placement, sealing tape and bolt tightening. see the Panel Assembly Sequence Drawing´in
chapter 4.

Tighten panel joint bolts with spanner. Apply a momentum to all bolts of 10Nm ± 1Nm.

2.5 Zenith Panel


Assemble the zenith panel with the same procedure until last layer is fully assembled. You may need a
crane for this placement.

2.6 Inspect the bolts


Tighten all panel bolts with a momentum of 10Nm ±1Nm from bottom to top.
Re-tighten all base bolts with a momentum of 50Nm ±10Nm.

2.7 Sealing the joints with silicone

2.7.1 Panel to panel sealing


After the whole radome is assembled, installers climb on the outside of the radome and apply sealing
glue to the exterior joint from top to bottom.

Seal the panel joints with white silicone from the top. Seal the panels inside the radome first and
then seal the outside seam.

Apply the sealing glue into the joints evenly with the use of tools or fingers. Protect the hands by
wearing soft plastics gloves.

When sealing the seam of base panels, if the seam width is too large to apply one lay of glue, you can
apply one lay of glue on both sides of the seam first, and after it has hardened, apply glue on the seam
again.

Before the silicone has hardened clean off the remains on tools or fingers.

During sealing, if you need to step on the radome when climbing outside the radome, please place
your feet on the panel joints. Do not step on the middle of a panel since that is the weakest point and
also most prone to surface damage and/or coating damage. Ensure that the panels or surface is not
damaged. Please wear shoes with a soft rubber sole.

2.7.2 Base rim sealing


Apply sealing glue to the exterior joint between base panel and platform.

2.8 Cleanup after installation


Disassemble scaffoldings inside the radome, don’t touch the panel laminates and antennas.

After completing the installation, remove dirt, stain and oil on the radome inside or outside surface,
remove all rubbish on site, and keep the environment clean.
