CONTAINERIZED BATCH LAUNDRY (CBL)
This manual contains an equipment description and maintenance procedures for the Containerized Batch
Laundry (CBL) Model 1, Model 2, and Model 3, which is designed to accommodate general laundering
requirements as well as special laundering requirements of hospital units. This manual also includes
references to publications that contain information on separately documented components of the CBL.
MAINTENANCE FORMS, RECORDS, AND REPORTS
Department of the Army forms and procedures used for equipment maintenance will be those prescribed
by (as applicable) by DA PAM 750-8, The Army Maintenance Management System (TAMMS) Users
Manual; DA PAM 738-751, Functional Users Manual for the Army Maintenance Management System
Aviation (TAMMS-A); or AR 700-138, Army Logistics Readiness and Sustainability.
REPORTING EQUIPMENT IMPROVEMENT RECOMMENDATIONS (EIR)
If your CBL needs improvement, let us know. Send us an EIR. You, the user, are the only one who can
tell us what you don't like about your equipment. Let us know why you don't like the design or
performance. Put it on a SF 368 (Product Quality Deficiency Report). Mail it to the address specified in
DA PAM 750-8, The Army Maintenance Management System (TAMMS) Users Manual, or as specified by
the acquiring activity. We will send you a reply.
HAND RECEIPT (HR) INFORMATION
This manual has a companion document with a TM number followed by "-HR" (which stands for Hand
Receipt). TM 10-3510-226-10-HR consists of preprinted hand receipts that lists end item related
equipment (i.e., COEI, BII, and AAL) that must be accounted for. As an aid to property accountability,
additional HR manuals may be requisitioned through normal publication channels.
CORROSION PREVENTION AND CONTROL (CPC)
Corrosion Prevention and Control (CPC) of U.S. Army materiel is a continuing concern. It is important
that any corrosion problems with this item be reported so that the problem can be corrected and
improvements made to prevent the problem in future items.
Corrosion specifically occurs with metals. It is an electrochemical process that causes the degradation of
metals. It is commonly caused by exposure to moisture, acids, bases, or salts. An example is the rusting
of iron. Corrosion damage in metals can be seen, depending on the metal, as tarnishing, pitting, fogging,
Plastics, composites, and rubbers can also degrade. Degradation is caused by thermal (heat), oxidation
(oxygen), solvation (solvents) or photolytic (light, typically UV) processes. The most common exposures
are excessive heat or light. Damage from these processes will appear as cracking, softening, swelling,
The form should be submitted to the address specified in DA PAM 750-8, The Army Maintenance
Management System (TAMMS) Users Manual.
