DETAILLED INVESTIGATIONS ARE THE KEY FOR A FULLY FUNCTIONAL BUILDING
For a proper designed building, many detailed infrastructure investigations are required as:
Extensive soil investigation consists of at least five boreholes down to a distance where a very stiff soil or rocks are. In addition, the ground water level has to be known and considered as well as the quality of the ground water. The quality of the soil, its different materials and their mechanical properties must be available. A detailed report must contain static and dynamic behaviour of the soil in the area where the foundation will be constructed.
Power supply. It is essential to know which power supply is available and to consider all necessary information concerning the local standards. If many power failures appear during the day it is highly recommended to install an independent and stabile power supply. This can be an uninterruptable power supply or in case of a high power demand with high peak power a flywheel solution.
For high quality data transmission without interferences from other power sources, it needs an excellent earthen system.
INVOLVMENT OF AMST SPECIALISTS ENSURE HIGH QUALITY
AMST has an extensive knowledge and experience how to design a proper infrastructure.
The benefits for the customer are:
The responsibility for a fully functional system remains with the OEM
Customer`s sub suppliers, which provide the infrastructure like power supply for the equipment, foundation, building, the inside installation of building infrastructure like power supply, sewage system, water supply and air condition, which normally do not have the experience, are supervised by AMST’s specialists.
AMST provides all necessary data and specifications for the sub suppliers.
In addition, important information must be available concerning the aerodynamic forces acting on doors, windows and ceiling of the room where the equipment will be installed. These data are important in terms of safety for the building, the personnel and the equipment.
For equipment like the centrifuge or the DESDEMONA, it is essential to perform an extensive soil investigation. The report must contain static and dynamic behaviour of the soil in the area where the foundation is constructed. The soil parameters have a strong influence on the natural frequencies of the machine, foundation and the equipment itself.
Inclusive lightning and radiation protection. A detailed plan and specification for the earthen system and how it will be connected between the foundation and the centrifuge building must be available also drawings and a specification for the lightning protection, a plan and specification for radiation protection to avoid influence of radio radiation to the equipment installed inside the building.
A proper designed power supply for the equipment is required especially concerning the stiffness of the network and the local regulations for flicker and voltage drops. AMST is able to provide as an alternative a flywheel solution to be independent from a public power supply.
