HRUBETZ PARATROOPER car attachment pin weld failure - NAFLIC Technical Bulletin N. 442
21014 dated 06.02.2018
Published by
A UK inspection body has recently been informed of a car attachment pin weld failure on a Lifting Paratrooper made by Hrubetz in 1979. Fortunately the failure occurred during the dismantling of the ride. It appears that the weld around the plate that holds the attachment bolt to the car frame failed and allowed the bolt to come away from the car frame. Special attention must be put on annual NDT inspection and routine checks.
