CONTAINERIZED SELF SERVICE LAUNDRY (CSSL) MODEL A
OPERATION UNDER USUAL CONDITIONS
The CSSL container weighs approximately 10,000 pounds when packed.
Lift and move the container only with material handling equipment of at
least 10,000 lbs capacity. Observe all safety precautions. Never stand
under a CSSL container when it is being lifted. Unpacking components
requires at least four persons.
This section outlines the siting requirements of the CSSL, and describes the assembly of its components.
It also provides procedures for the preparation, and operation of the CSSL under usual conditions. Refer
to work package 0006 00 for operation under unusual conditions. Refer to work package 0003 00 for a
summary of minimum CSSL employment conditions. Procedures in this work package require the use of
the general mechanics tool kit (Item #1, Table 2, Work Package 0045)
Unloading and moving the CSSL requires a forklift of at least 10,000 lbs capacity. Use the built-in forklift
pockets on the container to move the CSSL.
For storage, CSSL containers may be stacked six-high, as long as the bottom unit is positioned on a firm,
level surface. Hoisting requires 10,000 lbs minimum capacity hoists and slings connected to the corner
Read all warnings and cautions within this section and follow procedures outlined herein to ensure safe
operation of the CSSL and associated equipment.
The selected site should be large enough to accommodate the CSSL container with attached 8-ft
TEMPER Section. It should be within reasonable proximity to a freshwater source and wastewater
disposal facility. If 3,000 Gallon fabric tanks furnished with each CSSL are to be used for freshwater
storage and wastewater collection, sufficient space is needed to position the tanks as specified in work
package 0003 00. The selected site should be level and free of large holes, trees, rocks, and debris.
There should be sufficient drainage to prevent rainwater accumulation.
Proximity to a power source is also required. In addition, the power supply cables, the water supply, and
wastewater drain hoses should not be subjected to vehicular traffic and out of the way of facility users.
Vehicular access to the 3,000 Gallon tanks (if used) is required to frequently replenish freshwater and
drain the wastewater. Additional space is required to position a 30 kW (minimum) generator (if used) to
supply power to the CSSL and consideration for its refueling. Ideally, the container should be located
within the distance of the furnished utility cables and hoses as follows:
Freshwater Supply Hose
Wastewater Drain Hose
