  • Trapped Key Interlocks for Ports

    Interlocks can be used in many process or procedural systems within Ports involving the transmission of electricity, including crane movement, Ship to Shore power, and local substations or backup generators. KIRK type DM locks with chain that are attached to medium voltage connectors located in quayside vaults ensure proper procedure is followed when connecting shore to ship power. These MV connectors feed the ships with crucial electricity, enabling diesel on-ship generators to be switched off whilst in dock, also known as cold ironing. The upstream breakers feeding the vaults are equipped with KIRK® type F locks, which are keyed to correspond to the interlocks on the vault cover or connectors. This ensures power is disconnected before the connectors can be engaged or disengaged, prohibiting operations under load.

    Air filtration and gas purification solutions for industries

    Within the industrial sector there are specific installations which should pay maximum attention to the protection of their control rooms against corrosion. This is because their activities generate highly corrosive gasses which need to be eliminated in case they affect the functioning of critical electrical equipment. This corrosion compromises the efficiency and safety and can affect the production process itself.

    Environmental testing & compliance screening for energy/environmental sector

    Compliance screening and testing is often carried out during the manufacturing phase of a product, and all the way through its disposal or recycling process. It ensures that products and materials meet specific standards or comply with international and local directives or regulations. These standards and regulations are introduced to ensure the quality and safety of a product, and to minimise or eliminate its negative impact on the environment and people. Examples of products or materials tested are: electrical and electronic equipment (for compliance with the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive), waste oils, soil (soil remediation depending on contents of toxic metals), children’s products (for compliance with Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008), etc.
