All cracks should be repaired promptly as and when they developed. 2. CAUSES OF DAMAGES Deterioration can be classified based on the following causes:i) Biological ii) Non-biological. cloth and clothing fall easy prey to them. wooden piles. 01-12-2004 . which are usually referred to as Biological Damages. papers books. The White ant is usually active during the monsoon and prefers moist soil and may attack stores in contact with walls or roof or ground common forms of wood. 2.1. 2. an important aspect of O&M activities and requires regular vigil.1 WHITE ANTS These are very common in India and if ignored they are capable of causing endless damage.1 PREVENTIVE MEASURES The use of coal tar is very effective and in-expensive to use.POWERGRID PRESERVATION PROCEDURE DOC No : D-1-10-XX-01-02 PRESERVATION PROCEDURE AND CONDITION MONITORING FOR SPARE PARTS OF TRANSMISSION SYSTEM EOUIPMENT AND SPECIAL TOOLS PLANTS 1. Mildew. Apart from the above the following precautions should also be taken: i) Stores should be kept off the ground at least 300 mm high on a platform made of metal or any material not susceptible to white ant damage. wooden articles. INTRODUCTION Large quantities of stores deteriorate during storage due to number of causes and become unserviceable / scrap and cause loss to the Company. Where the presence of white ant is suspected the floors especially the corners. racks and furniture coming in direct contract with the ground should occasionally receive a coating of coal tar. The care of materials in store is therefore. ii) The floor of godowns and storehouses should be made of cement concrete. iii) Stores should not be allowed to touch roof or walls.1. DAMAGE DUE TO BIOLOGICAL CAUSES Damages arc caused to stores by insects and organism such as white ants.1.1. Goons and Rots. 2.

Mildew can be defined as low form of a large group of plants known as 'FUNGI'. The 'ROT' may in general be defined as state of deterioration of stores caused by micro-organism called bacteria. iii. 2. which are of plant origin i. Both of them attack easily all stores. which also cause considerable damage to stores.2. Oils and Chemicals used to kill insect pests are effective against rot and mildew also. Any insecticide may be used or sprayed on the damaged portion.1. ii. Stores must be inspected frequently and should be immediately treated when any damage is noticed. iii. caking of paints. v.POWERGRID PRESERVATION PROCEDURE DOC No : D-1-10-XX-01-02 2.e. 2.2 CURATIVE MEASURES There are a few curative measures. Stores must not be packed and stacked while wet or damp. which are of general application: i.2. Rot and Mildew generally take place during monsoon and in places where it is damp and wet. Stores must be kept away from walls and off the ground.1 PREVENTIVE MEASURES i.1. 01-12-2004 . Before any treatment is given. contains cellulose of some form or the other. 2.2 DAMAGE DUE TO NON-BIOLOGICAL CAUSES Rusting of iron stores. Damaged material should be exposed to the Sun for a few days with a frequent turn over.2 ROT AND MILDEW Rot and Mildew are names given to organism belonging to the plant kingdom. ii. hardening of rubber are such common experiences and these are some of the most important types of non.1.biological damage to general stores. All godowns and store houses must be opened daily to allow free ventilation particularly during the monsoon season. the damaged stores material should be segregated from the good ones. Store material should be frequently turned over wherever applicable. iv.

A drum of oil store in the open is subjected to much temperature variations. being capable of absorbing a large quantity of moisture. This danger is the greatest where monsoons are particularly heavy. All steel articles can be perfectly preserved from rusting by putting a lump of freshly burned lime in the case or the container in which they are kept. Due to expansion and contraction of the contents and the air inside the drum. If the things are to be moved put the lime in a muslin bag. 01-12-2004 . When rusting has already taken place the surface should be cleaned bright with wire brushes and then covered with grease or suitable paint.2 PREVENTIVE MEASURES i.1 RUST CORROSION Steel and iron in contact with moisture and air (Oxygen) form into a powdery compound. if the drum is standing bungs up and the top is wet and the caps are not properly sealed to avoid ingress of moisture into it. This is especially valuable for specimens of iron when fractured.1. This outside air is liable to contain moisture.POWERGRID PRESERVATION PROCEDURE DOC No : D-1-10-XX-01-02 2.2. At such places it is necessary to stock sections under cover and maintains a quick turn over. All furnished steel articles must receive a coat of oil before putting in bins.Ferric Oxide Fe3O2. transport and storage. Transformer/Reactors oil is usually contaminated by moisture and solid impurities during handling. 2.2. ii. which is commonly known as rust.2 STORES OF OILS AND GREASES IN DRUMS Oil and grease drums should be stored in covered location. water is precipitated due to condensation in the air space above the oil surface in the tanks or drums. The oil stores or a portion of a store where oils and greases are kept should be separated and controlled independently to prevent fire hazard. if seal is weak. Boiled linseed oil will keep polished tools from rusting if it is allowed to dry on them. At low temperature.2. Variation in temperature gives rise to a corresponding pressure variation inside the drum. In the course of time tiny pits are found on the surface which if allowed to develop may seriously reduce the effective area of the steel section. This contamination of moisture is more pronounced. as in a moderately dry place the lime will not want renewing for many years. some air from inside is driven out or outside air is drawn in. 2. particularly between day and night. which may condense inside and contaminate oil.

The BDV of the Oil shall be checked up once in 6 monthly. iii. the tanks should be inspected and if necessary cleaned. 2. dehydrating breathers.1 STORAGE CONDITIONS i.POWERGRID PRESERVATION PROCEDURE DOC No : D-1-10-XX-01-02 The drums must be stored lying on their cylindrical surface on wooden sleeper and turned so that both caps lie on a horizontal line.e. 01-12-2004 .3 RUBBER AND RUBBER GOODS Rubber is a vegetable product and most articles made for it are subject to deterioration at a rate depending upon the climate condition under which they are stored. during the dry summer months.
