1.4 MAINTENANCE (PRINCIPLES AND TERMS)

1.4.1 GENERAL

Maintenance is a significant factor to ensure the availability and reliability of the bogies. Thus
it is of utmost importance.

Maintenance includes:

preventive measure which can be planned, and

work which is necessary but cannot be planned.

It includes all necessary activities with the aim to maintain the desired state of all operating
means.

The modern concept to deal with the bogies is the planned condition-related maintenance of
components and sub-assemblies which forms the balanced relation of preventive works
which can be planned to those which cannot be planned ,but are necessary. Thus the
components can be used in a cost-saving way up to the limits of their expected service life.

In order to ensure the proper functioning of the bogies and their components or have the
right to raise guarantee claims, if any, all hints and instructions given in the data sheets and
the relevant documents of the sub-suppliers must be followed.

1.4.2 PLANNED MAINTENANCE

Planned (preventive) maintenance serves

to avoid damage

to reduce functional failures and

to ensure the availability of the vehicle.

Thus it limits costs of vehicle maintenance!

Sheet 16 of 22 abcd-No. 150696 H9030


General hints and structure of Alternation: 04/10.03
documentation File name: IH_B01_A04_E
Printing date: 15.10.03 07:58
MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE MANUAL
ABCD Indian Railways

Preventive maintenance activities include

visual checks and inspections

preventive maintenance and

planned servicing including the Revision of the sub-assemblies and of the whole
vehicle

The characteristics of planned maintenance include the planned and


systematic checks, maintenance and servicing work. The intervals for these
activities depend on the time or running capacity.

1.4.3 VISUAL INSPECTION AND SAFETY CHECKS

The visual inspections as part of the planned maintenance work are carried out primarily
to assess the technical condition of vehicles and components for use. Traditionally, the
visual inspection is carried out by the driver prior to the beginning of travel.

Primarily, the visual inspection is related to

functioning,

safety and

maintenance of value.

The results of the visual inspections are documented and evaluated as required. Corrections
are made immediately, if necessary. Comprehensive measures are planned and carried out
as soon as possible, if admissible.

Safety checks shall be carried out in order to detect damage to components, if any which
resulted from external influences during operation which might be the consequence of falling
rocks, collision with objects or wilful destruction.

From the technical point of view, safety checks are not required in any case, however, are
recommended as preventive measures. Visible damage to sub-assemblies and components
will thus be recognised early which might under certain circumstances result in serious
consequential damage to the equipment and in a multiple of the initial maintenance cost.
The relevant precautions thus limit unplanned failures and thus reduce cost.

Safety checks and visual inspections should be carried out daily.

MAINTENANCE AND SERVICE MANUAL
Indian Railways ABCD

1.4.4 MAINTENANANCE

Preventive maintenance includes:

the checking of functions,

measuring and comparing with specified reference values,

adjustment and optimisation,

proper cleaning and

lubricating the mechanical units.

Minor repair work and replacement of wearing parts is carried out during the maintenance
activities.

1.4.5 PLANNED REPAIRS

Planned repair work is done primarily according to the results of visual inspections or
analyses, refer to schedule of terms. Parts will be subject to preventive repair or are
replaced if functional troubles are expected prior to the next maintenance interval.

1.4.6 REVISION (OVERHAUL)

Revisions (overhauls) include basic checks and overhaul work at vehicle components
depending on the age, running capacity and specification of the owner.

The period of overhaul for the brake system depends on the conditions of operation of the
vehicle. Thus the final overhaul intervals should be determined in time on co-ordination with
the manufacturer.

1.4.7 ELIMINATION OF FAULTS (WHOLE VEHICLE )

All faults reported by the driving and operating personnel or recorded by the vehicles failure
recorder must be processed by the maintenance staff. A decision should be made here
between faults which affect the operation or represent a reduction in the operating
characteristics and must thus be eliminated immediately or those which can be eliminated
more conveniently during the next workshop stay of the vehicle concerned and which are
can planned accordingly. Comprehensive system knowledge both in the
electrical/electronical area and in the mechanical sector is required to eliminate failures.

ABCD Indian Railways

1.4.8 UNPLANNED SERVICING

During planned servicing work (refer to chapter 3.4), visible defects due to wear are
eliminated by replacing or renewing components. Even if these preventive measures are
carried out with utmost care it is not possible to prevent all failures of components due to
wear, ageing or loading. The functional and operating failures which occur due to these
influences require work and repairs which are called unplanned repair works.

1.4.8.1 REPAIR OF DAMAGE

This includes repairs of damage which result from external influences such as

accidents

falling rock and

vandalism

and which are not due to malfunctioning sub-assemblies of the vehicle. Depending on these
potential damage causes, repair work, above all, is related to the mechanical parts of the
vehicle. However, they can also result in the replacement of affected electrical equipment
parts

1.5 RECORDING OF THE MAINTENANCE MEASURES

To record the maintenance and servicing work carried out is an urgent requirement during
the whole period of operation of the bogies.

This facilitates the processing of guarantee claims. Conclusions can be drawn about the
provision of spare and wearing parts and for the future vehicle development.

The following data must be recorded during the maintenance and servicing measure:

Date, time, if necessary

Maintenance or repair carried out by: Works, responsible person, phone No.

Vehicle number/bogie number

Hours of operation/kilometre coverage

Measures initiated: Description of activity and fault elimination

In case of fault: Type of damage/place of installation/cause of damage, if known

Material used: Material description


Identification number of the new component installed.
