OPERATION IN SALT WATER AREAS.
Operation in salt water areas accelerates corrosion on bare metal surfaces. Observe the following precautions
when operating the refrigerated container in saltwater areas:
(1) Carefully inspect container before use. If bare metal is found, notify unit maintenance to preserve or
paint the metal as required.
(2) Following operation in salt water areas, rinse outside of refrigerated container with clean fresh water to
remove salt spray and/or deposits. Use care not to get water in refrigeration unit, generator set, or
(3) Refer to TM 9-4110-258-13 for operation of the refrigeration unit in salt water areas.
(4) Refer to TM 5-6115-585-12/34 for operation of the generator set in salt water.
OPERATION IN HIGH ALTITUDES.
Elevations Up To 5.000 Feet (1,524 m). The refrigerated container and refrigeration unit are designed to
operate at elevations up to 5,000 feet (1,524 m) above sea level without special servicing or adjustments.
Elevations Above 5,000 Feet (1,524 m). At elevations greater than 5,000 feet (1,524 m) above sea level
output of the refrigeration unit will be reduced. The refrigeration unit will take longer to cool down the
container during startup, and it will run longer during each cooling cycle. Refer to TM 9-4110-258-13 for
operating the refrigeration unit at high altitudes.
If personnel are trapped in container use emergency hatch.
Shut down refrigeration unit and gen set if problems arise.
See Refrigeration Unit manual TM 9-4110-258-13 for additional emergency procedures.
See Gen Set manual TM 5-6115-585-12 for additional emergency procedures.
NUCLEAR, BIOLOGICAL, AND CHEMICAL (NBC) DECONTAMINATION PROCEDURES.
General Cleaning and Decontamination.
(1) Wash the exterior of the refrigerated container with any suitable detergent. Thoroughly rinse with fresh
water and allow to air dry.
Each deck stored container must be washed by using organization after each ocean voyage to
(2) For decontamination, procedures required by TM 743-200 and FM 3-5 shall apply.
