Section IV. PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES (PMCS)
4-11 INTRODUCTION, INSPECTION. AND SERVICE.
a. Systematic, periodic Preventive Maintenance Checks and Services (PMCS) are essential to ensure
that the heater is ready for operation at all times. The purpose of a preventive maintenance program
is to discover and correct defects and deficiencies before they can cause serious damage or com-
plete failure of the equipment. Any effective preventive maintenance program must begin with the
indoctrination of operators to report all unusual conditions noted during daily checks or actual op-
eration to unit maintenance. All defects and deficiencies discovered during maintenance inspec-
tions must be recorded, together with corrective action taken, on DA Form 2404 (Equipment Inspec-
tion and Maintenance Worksheet).
b. A schedule for unit preventive maintenance inspection and service should be established immedi-
ately after installation of the heater.
