SITE REQUIREMENTS - Continued
FOR FUEL SPILLS, REFER TO FM 10-67-1, CONCEPTS AND EQUIPMENT OF PETROLEUM
Fuel is flammable and toxic to eyes, skin, and respiratory tract. Skin/eye protection is required. Avoid
repeated/prolonged contact. Use only in well-ventilated areas. Keep away from open flames or other
sources of ignition. Post FUEL FLAMMABLE/NO SMOKING signs around the area. Be sure a fire
extinguisher is available.
Fuel on clothing can be fatal if ignited by a static discharge. If fuel gets on clothes, leave the refueling area
as soon as possible, remove clothes, and wash skin with warm, soapy water before getting dressed.
Spilled fuel creates a flammable, vapor-air mixture and fire can take place. Improper positioning of
external fuel source can cause fuel tank to overflow. Stop refueling immediately if fuel spill occurs.
Stow wheel assemblies as follows:
Use care when using the jack assembly or when raising or lowering the wheel assemblies. Fingers or hands
may be pinched causing injury to personnel.
Do not set up the ASH on extremely unleveled terrain (greater than 10 degrees (178 mils)) from true
horizontal position). Improper operation or damage to equipment may result.
Do not overextend jack or damage to jack may result.
a. Raise front of ASH by extending attached jack assembly (1).
b. Remove wheel pin (2) and move wheels (3) up toward rear of ASH and install wheel pin.
c. Lower front of ASH.
Level ASH by adjusting front with attached jack assembly (1) so that it does not exceed 10 degree (178 mils) incline.
Area in front of ASH must be clear of objects that would interfere with proper positioning of supply and return air ducts
or airflow to fresh air damper.
Area around and above exhaust pipe (6 feet (1.83m) from ground level) must be clear of obstacles.
Area on right side of ASH must allow access to operate controls on control panel.
Terrain for external fuel source should be as level as possible. External fuel source must be placed not lower than 12
inches (30.5 cm) below base of ASH and not higher than 10 feet (3m) above ASH.
