Seismic resistance

seismic qualification For correct and safe work of industrial and power facilities and its equipment, the government regularly monitors and checks the existence of seismic qualification. It represents certificate that has precise conformity of the facility, constructions and equipment to those standards which are described in GOSTs and design standards. To get such document, there should be experienced seismic qualification.

Particulars of seismic qualification

One of the laboratories in Moscow, which provides such services is «AtomSeismicProject».

Qualification is done by our specialists via following methods according to the types and forms of the equipment:

  • Calculations of seismic resistance;
  • Tests on seismic resistance;
  • Experimentally-calculated-assessment

The cost of the testing depends on the type of the facility for which seismic resistance, time frames and methods should be defined.

During conducting the qualification laboratory stuff makes reports in which there is all information about the tests and calculations: reaction on seismic load, maximum condition etc. These reports with other documents are submitted to government authorities for getting a certificate confirming seismic resistance of the building, construction or equipment.

According to the results of the studies obtained by specified methods, there is formed a Record of tests (qualification) containing method of qualification, results of the calculations and tests, recommendations and a report of seismic resistance.

We test and calculate the following types of industrial and civilian facilities including equipment for NPP I, II and III categories of seismic resistance:

Thermal and mechanical:

  • compressors, engines and pumps;
  • pipeline fittings and safety devices;
  • industrial pipelines;
  • systems of ventilation and air conditioning;
  • tanks and reservoirs with liquid;
  • heat exchangers and filters;
  • systems of water preparing and treatment;
  • automatic systems of fire fighting;
  • airtight valves;
  • diesel generators.

Electrotechnical equipment:

  • dry and oil transformers;
  • hard busbars;
  • low-voltage switchboards;
  • switch-gear cubicles;
  • inverters and rectifiers;
  • motors and electric devices;
  • soft starters;
  • control and protective systems for NPP;
  • operating current control devices;
  • high voltage circuit breakers;
  • cable penetrations, stalls;
  • distribution substations;
  • scaffoldings with batteries.

Building constructions and structures:

  • block modular unitized transformer substations;
  • mobile buildings and structures;
  • support structures of power lines;
  • truss constructions;
  • manholes.

You can find more about all the stages, methods and cost of qualification in the laboratory «AtomSeismicProject». Contact us to define the level of technical means and equipment immunity.
