Cleaning and Inspection of Mechanical Parts.
Drycleaning solvent P-D-680 is toxic and flammable. Wear protective goggles and
gloves and use only in a well-ventilated area. Avoid contact with skin, eyes, and
clothes and don't breathe vapors. Do not use near open flame or excessive heat.
The flash point is 100 138° F (38 59° C). If you become dizzy while using cleaning
solvent, get fresh air immediately and get medical aid. If contact with eyes is
made, wash your eyes with water and get medical aid immediately.
Compressed air used for cleaning purposes will not exceed 30 psi (207 kPa). Use
only with effective chip-guarding and personal-protective equipment (goggles,
shield, gloves, etc.).
Clean metal parts in dry-cleaning solvent (Item 10, App C). Thoroughly dry the parts with compressed air,
observing all safety precautions.
Fibrous or rubber parts can generally be cleaned with warm, soapy water and dried with compressed air.
Inspect metal parts for cracks, breaks, bends, worn edges, and rough bearing surfaces. Damage that alters
the part or its function is cause for replacement of-that part.
Repair the laundry unit to normal operating condition by replacing or repairing a defective component
and/or by needed adjustments.
Cleaning and lubrication is sometimes all that is needed to return an item to operating condition.
Remove and replace only those items necessary to make repairs. After replacing the defective
components, ensure that the laundry operates correctly by making a visual inspection and by performing an
operational check. Refer to TM 10-3510-209-10.
