ASME B30.27-2005 pdf – Material Placement Systems.
(b) Control devices shall be designed to prevent unintentional operation.
(c) Control systems shall be designed so that they are nonfunctional when the equipment is locked out in accordance with ANSI Z244.1.
(d) All control devices shall be constructed, arranged, and marked so their function is indicated.
(e) Control devices that activate boom movements shall return to the neutral position when released.
27-1.7.4 Hour Meters
Hour meters shall be installed on any material placement system requiring maintenance based on hours.
SECTION 27-1.8: GUARDS
(a) Any hazard that is inaccessible is considered guarded by location.
(b) A fixed guard shall be installed for rotating shafts. The underside of a mobile truck chassis-mounted material placement system is considered guarded by location.
(c) A fixed guard shall be installed over V-belts, drive pulleys, chains, sprockets, gears, and other moving parts.
(d) All exhaust pipes shall be guarded or insulated to prevent contact with personnel when performing routine duties.
(e) Whenever guarding is impractical, prominent means such as safety signs or lights shall be provided at the point of hazard in lieu of guarding.
SECTION 27-1.9: MOBILE AND STATIONARY PLACING BOOMS
27-1.9.1 Placing Booms
(a) Mobile placing booms shall be equipped with a remote control with sufficient range to operate the material placement system from a distance equivalent to the boom length.
(b) The lifting and lowering speed at the end of the boom shall not exceed 3 ft/sec when activating any one section.
(c) The lifting and lowering speed at the end of the boom shall not exceed 10 ft/sec when activating any combination of boom functions.
(d) The horizontal slewing speed at the end of the boom shall not exceed 5 ft/sec.
(e) An integrally mounted holding device (such as a load hold check valve) shall be provided with each hydraulic cylinder on each boom section to prevent uncontrolled movement of the boom in the event of a hydraulic system failure (e.g., supply hose rupture).
27-1.9.2 Boom Tip Attachments
Provisions shall be made so that attachments suspended from the boom tip can be restrained.
SECTION 27-1.10: DELIVERY SYSTEMS
27-1.10.1 Delivery Line
Delivery system components supplied with a machine shall have a working pressure rating at least equal to the maximum pressure of the machine, as delivered.
27-1.10.2 Delivery System Components
Delivery system components shall meet the requirements of CPMA 27-2000.
SECTION 27-1.11: LOSS OF POWER
Interruption of power to the material placement system shall not cause a hazardous situation.
SECTION 27-1.12: REMOTE STARTING
A material placement system powered by the vehicle engine shall be designed so the engine cannot be started from a remote location unless the drive axles are disengaged.
SECTION 27-1.13: MANUALS
The manufacturer, supplier, or importer shall furnish with each material placement system information applicable to the following:
(c) lock-out / tag-out procedures
(j) wiring diagram (may be supplied separately)
(k) hydraulic diagram (may be supplied separately)
(1) safety sign ordering information and location guide (may be supplied separately)
(in) spare parts list containing relevant safety-related spare parts, such as relief valves, check valves, and guards, with part location
SECTION 27-1.14: FUEL AND EXHAUST SYSTEMS
(a) The material placement system’s fuel system components shall be compatible with the fuel used.
(b) The fuel system filling area shall be located away from potential fuel ignition sources on the machine.
(c) Engine exhaust gases shall be piped to the outside of the cab and discharged in a direction away from the operator and other locations where personnel would be performing routine duties.
