All safety recommendations must be followed.
A key item is the checking of the structural integrity
of the cylinders. The cylinders are pressure vessels that contain
up to 3000 psi of air and need to be checked periodically. HYGE
Inc recommends a hydrostatic pressure testing every 5 years
or after 2000 firings.
The best time to do this test is during an annual
maintenance overhaul. HYGE Inc. can do the maintenance
and coordinate the required tests. The hydrostatic tests are
performed by independent agencies that provide a written analysis.
A thorough mechanical overhaul and rebuilding of
the HYGETM cylinders and thrust column
is recommended every year 400 firings. This service includes
replacement of all seals, gaskets, bearings, and other wear
items. HYGE Inc. will inspect all parts
for excessive wear. The systemís brake mechanisms are very critical.

It is important to have a HYGETM engineer
on site during rail installation to make sure that the rails
and the reaction block are installed correctly. The critical
measurements are double checked by the HYGETM
service engineer to minimize wear of the HYGETM
