COMMON CHECKS AND CLEANING
Always keep the equipment clean. Remove dirt, sand, and debris from tent fabric and frame surfaces.
Clean all MCPS fabric components with a brush and mild soapy water. Let fabric components air dry.
Bolts, Nuts, and Screws
Check bolts, nuts, and screws for obvious looseness, missing, bent, or broken condition on equipment. If
you find a bolt, nut, or screw you think is loose, tighten it or report it to your supervisor.
CORROSION PREVENTION AND CONTROL
The MCPS tent system is designed to be corrosion resistant; however, tent components must never be
stored wet or soiled in order to prevent possible corrosive damage to metal parts.
LEAKAGE DEFINITION FOR PERFORMING PMCS
It is necessary for you to know how fluid leakage affects the status of the equipment. The following are
the types/classes of leakage an operator needs to know to be able to determine the status of the tent
system. Learn these leakage definitions and remember - when in doubt, notify your supervisor.
Equipment operation is allowable with minor leakages (Class I or II). Consideration
should be given to weather conditions, but when in doubt, notify your supervisor. Class
III leaks should be reported immediately to your supervisor.
Class I - Seepage of fluid (as indicated by wetness or discoloration) not great enough to form drops.
Class II - Leakage of fluid great enough to form drops but not enough to cause drops to drip from item
Class III - Leakage of fluid great enough to form drops that fall from items being checked/inspected.
