New ID-E test technology for pressure accumulators
As aresult of a new partnership with the TÜV Thüringen, VIERECK now offers a testing technology where the bladder accumulators does not have to be removed from the system.
Operators of pressure storage facilities are obliged to check the safety of the facilities regularly. In some cases, an internal and pressure test is prescribed for this purpose. Up to now, the bladder accumulators had to be removed from the system and tested by a specialised company. In most cases, the inspection was accepted by the TÜV.
The TÜV Thüringen has now developed a ID-E-substitute test procedure where the substitute test can be performed at the installed system. In some cases it is not even necessary to shut down the system.
Experts from TÜV Thüringen have developed a new, technically innovative high-performance technology based on EMAT. This is a specified ultrasonic application, designed for use in the field of hydraulic accumulator cylinders.
ID-E comprehensively meets the requirements of VdTÜV Code of Practice 378.
The new procedure enables the complete testing of the pressure vessel in one test step. This test method differs clearly from other offered ultrasonic test methods and provides the operator with the legal security he expects.
Advantages of the ID-E:
Evaluation of measurement results in real time
integrated statement about the entire pressure bearing wall, including thread
Detection of impermissible inhomogeneities
Comparability with earlier / later measurements
Testing at higher surface temperatures
Detection of passive errors
Testing without additional test medium
Testing without coupling agent
Test without 230-volt power connection (Ex hazardous areas)
Testing without connection of a high-pressure test manometer
Testing without conversion of the bladder accumulator
Testing without separation of useful and disturbing noises
Testing without transporting the plant part to the test site
Inspection without returning the plant section to the plant
no generation of pressure differences (as e.g. with SEP) necessary
no damage to the bladder during the test
TÜV Thüringen is the holder of the patent. VIERECK is a contractual partner of TÜV Thüringen and is happy to carry out the tests on their premises. Please contact our service staff.
VIERECK expands its range of products in the field of drive and control technology
It is not always necessary to buy new defective assemblies. Especially with high-quality modules it is often sufficient to replace or repair wearing parts or defective components. In modern workshops, Rexroth tests and repairs assemblies according to manufacturer specifications and exclusively with original spare parts. All workshops are ISO-9001 certified and offer uniform quality standards as well as a warranty on the repaired products.
In the case of emergency and urgent repairs, our trained technicians restore the components to a functional state quickly and at optimum cost. Rexroth gives a 12-month warranty on the replaced parts. If a repair is not possible due to the existing damage, the Rexroth Service Department will automatically submit a new part offer.
A preventive product overhaul ensures the long-term availability and productivity of your machines. Experienced technicians analyse the need for action on site and, at the customer's request, carry out the replacement and commissioning of the overhauled components.
We have the largest product range worldwide for industrial hydraulics, electric drives and controls, linear and assembly technology, clamping technology and welding technology.
The long-standing, close partnership between the companies Bosch Rexroth and VIERECK in hydraulics has now been extended by a further product area. With immediate effect VIERECK takes over the area sales of service performances of the company Bosch Rexroth in the area "electric drives" (AE) in the north. The principle of close proximity of partners to customers, which has been proven in hydraulics for decades, is now also applied to the service of products in the AE area. In addition to the central contact persons in the Bosch Rexroth plants, our competent sales team will now also be available to assist you.
New hydraulic system for the flap bridges
Our hydraulic specialists are currently overhauling the flap bridges at the flood barrier of river Stör. Viereck Hydraulik supplies the complete hydraulic system for the flap bridges as well as the entire control system for the two flap bridges.
The Stör is the largest tributary of the Elbe in Schleswig-Holstein. In the lower reaches from Kellinghusen to its mouth, it is a shipping route and is subject to the influence of the tide. The water can flow in and out unhindered with the tides. The flood barrier was put into operation in 1975 and protects the town of Itzehoe and the surrounding area from the storm tides of the North Sea. During storm surges (from water level of the Elbe 2.50 m above NHN), the gates are closed - 906 times between 1975 and mid-2014.
For the commissioning of hydraulic systems and piping, our hydraulic specialists have created the perfect tool for themselves: With the completion of the third flushing unit, we can now also carry out flushing work with a total of up to 750 l/min. The flushing units from Viereck have a modular design. If oil quantities greater than 250 l/min are required for large cross-sections, the units can be operated in parallel.
Hydraulic piping must be cleaned and checked for leaks on a regular basis. There are very different requirements for the "tools":
the largest possible volume flow at relatively low pressure
slight preheating of the oil
continuous filtration and measurement of the degree of contamination
cooler to avoid overheating (oil temperature increases during long flushing processes)
final pressure test with high test pressure at low oil flow rate
Our flushing units meet all these requirements:
powerful variable displacement pump designed for large oil quantities and high pressures
variable flow rate, thus relatively small motor possible (facilitates the power supply at the operation sites: 63A plug for 30kW drive)
large filters with high dirt holding capacity for reduced flushing times
integrated cooler enables long flushing cycles
easy transport by forklift truck and crane due to modular design of the systems
extensive range of accessories for flexible design of the installation site
up to 30 meters distance between flushing units and plant to be cleaned are possible
On the 1st August, a new year of training got underway.
In 2019, we get to know a new trainee. Mattes B. has jumped straight into learning about hydraulic power unit production as a mechatronics technician.
There is now a total of seven youth trainees at Viereck in Elmshorn.
Viereck has been training their next generation since 1997, securing the company’s future by making sure our wholesale traders and export merchants, specialists in warehouse logistics and mechatronics technicians are all highly skilled. Our company’s specialisation sets the bar high for all our trainees.
Our 2020 trainees
All our trainee positions have been awarded for 2019. If you’re interested, you can apply to start in 2020.
In February, we delivered four 200 kW pumps to be used on-board, each with a displacement volume of 500cm3 per revolution. Our Viereck specialists took care of everything: from planning to construction, assembly through to entering the pumps into operation.
REXROTH BOSCH service partner
Following an exclusive training programme undertaken by our employees, we are now a certified service partner for REXROTH BOSCH. In doing so, we are further cultivating our longstanding partnership and we are also able to provide our customers with even better, even quicker service.
We greatly appreciate the trust you have placed in us.
Viereck at NORTEC
From the 23rd to the 26th January 2018, we get to feature at the Bosch Rexroth shared stand at “NORTEC – The Trade Fair for Manufacturing in Northern Germany”.
We’d be happy to meet you at the trade fair.
