The temperature for painting may range between 13 degree C to 60 degree C. Inspection of painting works : . iii) Hoists: The component parts of the hoists which requires field painting or coating of other protective compounds will be painted as per the specifications of the hoist contractor. piping etc. iv) Miscellaneous components: Miscellaneous components such as hand rails. Three coats of coal tar epoxy paint will be applied over a touch up coat of Zinc rich epoxy primer to produce a minimum dry film thickness of 100 microns per coat. The paint will be applied by brush or special air free spraying equipment to produce a minimum dry film thickness of 100 micron per coat. will have a protective coat of Shaliplastic SL. Any other items which have not been specifically mentioned and which require painting or protective coating will be given painting or protective coating as per standard requirement.. The surfaces exposed to sunlight. Thinning with solvents of any kind will not be permitted. machinery. gratings and frames. 39. The paint will be free from lumps. the dried film will be free from pin hole and conspicuous brush mark and will be not more than slightly seedy granular or fibrous in appearance.All the surfaces of the gates except the finished surfaces will be painted with cold applied coal tar epoxy paint. a cold applied coal tar emulsion.

tools required for erection of all the equipments. tracks. guides and liners securely in position while concrete is being placed in the blockouts. Extreme care will be taken to ensure that their surfaces are in a true plane within the tolerances throughout their entire length to ensure trouble free performance of gates. The erection tolerances for the frames and guides will be as indicated in the drawings.43. The Contractor will also furnish tools. Guides. Assembly will be by bolting and welding and connections to embedded anchorage’s will be adjusted and finally tightened to hold the frames. guides. for the installation of all equipments. Materials and equipments for Erection : The Contractor will make his own arrangements with necessary. grade and plumb within the erection tolerances and secured in place by anchorage’s as shown in the drawings or otherwise according to the best modern practice and as necessary for successful functioning of these units. alignment tolerances will be checked and remedial action will be taken if any displacement has occurred. seal seat and groove liner arrangements will be assembled in the respective blockouts brought to line. Before placing the concrete in any one lift and between placement of successive lifts. Erection and Erection Personnel: The Contractor will be fully responsible for the correct and accurate erection of equipment offered by him and will furnish all the erection personnel. tackles and other special equipments required for the erection. 45. . Gates. Frames. skilled or unskilled. 44. Tracks and Groove liners: Frames.

The gates and hoist equipment will be further subjected to performance test before acceptance. Operational Tests: After the equipment has been installed in the field it will be operated and tested and when so operated and tested it will meet all the requirements of the specifications and drawings. The gate will be raised and lowered several times for their full length of travel. Tests will include: i) Performance tests in dry condition.46. 49. grade and plumb within the erection tolerances and secured in place by proper anchorage’s as shown in the drawings or according to the best modern practice and as necessary for successful functioning of the hoist. 47. The erection of the hoist will be done under the supervision of experienced erection personnel. Erection of Hoist and Electrical Equipment : The Contractor will prepare a detailed procedure for erection of the hoist and other electrical equipments. fabricated and erected. The Contractor will be responsible for any modifications and adjustments necessary in the systems as a result of such tests. Performance Tests: General : The Contractor will carry out such tests on the gates and hoisting equipments as may be required by the Engineer in order to determine that the gates and hoisting equipments perform all the functions satisfactorily for which they have been designed. . The Contractor will be fully responsible for the erection and satisfactory operation of the hoist. which will describe the sequence of erection and operation. The primary requirement for acceptance in operational test is to ensure the smooth lowering and raising of each gate. The erection will be done to line. 48.
