3. PPE training shall be included in all operator training courses, and
specifically in all MHE/WHE courses.

.9 Discuss SE custody control procedures. [ref. b, ch. 12]
1. Issue Procedures.
   All personnel shall have in their possession a valid USN Aviation
Support Equipment Operator's License (OPNAV 4790/102) for specific
equipment being checked out. A joint (issuing and receiving personnel)
preoperational inspection shall be performed, using the applicable MRCs
prior to issue. Personnel receiving the SE will sign the SE
Preoperational Record (OPNAV 4790/52) in the inspector's block. Issuing
personnel will sign the supervisor's block. The SE Preoperational
Record (OPNAV 4790/52) will accompany each item of SE. The Support
Equipment Transaction Report (OPNAV 4790/64) shall be signed in block
27f by the user to document SE issue. The white, green, and yellow
copies of the TR will be retained by the issuing activity for local
record keeping purposes. The pink copy will be retained by using
activity for its records.
2. Receipt Procedures.
   All persons shall have in their possession a valid OPNAV 4790/102
for specific equipment being returned. The applicable SE Preoperational
Record (OPNAV 4790/52) shall be returned with the SE. A joint (issuing
and receiving personnel) preoperational inspection will be performed by
the using and receiving personnel using the applicable MRCs. The SE
Preoperational Record (OPNAV 4790/52) will be annotated the same as
above. The TR shall be signed in block 28f by receiving personnel to
document SE return.
3. Discrepancy Identification.
   All discrepancies noted during issue/receipt or preoperational
inspections shall be annotated on a MAF by Production Control.

.10 Discuss scheduled and unscheduled maintenance on SE. [ref. b, ch.
1. DON’s three-level maintenance concept is applicable to SE. The
three-level maintenance concept provides classification and optimum
assignment    of   SE  maintenance    functions  consistent   with   an
organization's capability to perform these functions. SE maintenance
functions are classified and assigned to PMS for SE consists of the
maintenance functions per Volume V, Chapter 18.
    (1) Limited I-Level Maintenance. When an organization is deploying
to an operating environment without IMA capability, pre-deployment
planning shall include how accomplishment of scheduled maintenance of
SE is to be accommodated. If in theater afloat or ashore I-level
support non-availability is anticipated due to distance or time, the
deploying unit shall request all necessary I-level SE training from its
supporting IMA. Successful completion of this training will allow for
self sufficiency of scheduled SE maintenance for IMRL during deployment.
This authority for I-level detachment maintenance of SE excludes
maintenance of aircraft lifting devices that require a functional load
test, proofloading that uses a portable or stationary jack tester, when
NDI requirements exist, and in any situation where the appropriate
special tools or SE, consumable maintenance materials, or replacement
parts are unavailable. Maintenance documentation will be accomplished
per Volume III.
NOTE: SE shall not be transferred in a non-RFI status without prior
approval of the cognizant SECA.

123. I Level Support Equipment Fundamentals                  Page 5 of 13

   (2) Calibration. Calibration is a scheduled performance evaluation
and correction requirement for certain specified items of SE.
Calibration is the responsibility of the Avionics Division.
   (3)   Unscheduled  Maintenance.   Unscheduled   maintenance is   the
maintenance required due to SE failures or as a result of discrepancies
and deficiencies found during scheduled maintenance. Unscheduled
maintenance consists of fault isolation (troubleshooting), repair or
replacement, test, and calibration, if required.
   (4) Upon approval by the cognizant SECA, non-RFI SE being
transferred shall have all Supply documentation attached to the
appropriate SE Custody and Maintenance History Record (OPNAV 4790/51).
All parts removed for maintenance and all received parts not installed
shall be forwarded with the SE.
2. The MMCO shall ensure all SE maintenance is optimally scheduled.
This includes scheduled maintenance, unscheduled maintenance, and TD
compliance. Monthly scheduled maintenance plans will be developed
either manually from files, or by MIS procedures, and will project the
scheduled workload. If possible, SE on subcustody to user activities
shall be recalled at least 1 day prior to a scheduled inspection. When
operational requirements dictate, PM may deviate plus or minus 3 days
on calendar cycles and plus or minus 10 percent on meter times. The
next inspection will be due as if no deviation had occurred.
NOTE: When deviations described previously have been exceeded, the SE
item is restricted from further operation until completion of the
subject inspection, that is, after 3 days or 10 percent have passed.
When PM inspections are done earlier than 10 percent or 3 days, the
next inspection is due based on the date/hour/cycle the PM inspection
commenced. SE reporting custodians need no higher authority to perform
inspections outside authorized deviations.

.11 Discuss the proper routing and sign-off of an SE misuse/abuse
report concerning a supported activity. [ref. b, ch. 14]
1. Reporting SE misuse/abuse is an all hands responsibility. Procedures
are as follows:
   (1) Anyone witnessing SE misuse/abuse is expected to prepare and
forward an SE Misuse/Abuse Report (OPNAV 4790/108) to the activity with
IMRL reporting responsibilities for the SE item. Handwritten forms are
   (2) QA shall assign a control number and prepare an official
typewritten report for the MO’s signature. Forward the signed report to
the CO of the command which held custody of the item. Send a copy to
the CO of the command to which the offender is attached, if different.
   (3) QA of the command receiving the report shall conduct an
investigation and provide recommendations to the CO for corrective
action. A joint investigation shall be conducted with the offender’s
command, if different. During the investigation, an analysis of
licensing, training, certification, maintenance procedures, safety, and
related trends will be conducted. The CO shall return the report to
originator within 10 working days, with recommendations and action
taken described on the back of the form.
   (4) The originator will provide copies of the completed report to
all concerned activities.
2. If the offender and the witness of the misuse/abuse belong to the
command with custody of the item that was misused/abused, the report
stays within the command.
3. Procedures for SE license revocation and requalification are in
Volume V, Chapter 17.

.12 Discuss the Tire/Wheel Certification Program as it relates to SE.
[ref. a, ch. 7]
Read section 112

.13 Discuss requirements for load testing of slings. [ref. f]
1. General
   All aircraft support equipment slings shall be proofload tested at
new manufacture to verify the integrity of construction of the sling.
Proofload testing is also conducted by the IMA after all major repairs
including welding, significant structural repair, or replacement of
sling components with locally manufactured, untested parts. There is no
requirement for annual proofload testing of aircraft support equipment
slings. The following requirements are applicable to aircraft support
equipment slings.
   a. Slings shall be proofload tested and tagged at new manufacture. A
certificate of proofload test from the original manufacturer (OEM) or
the supplier of purchased equipment will satisfy this requirement,
provided the proofloads used meet or exceed the values specified in
applicable technical data. If newly manufactured slings are received
through the Navy supply system without proofload tags or certificate of
proofload test, initiate a Quality Deficiency Report (QDR) in
accordance with OPNAVINST 4790.2 to the appropriate sling CFA/FST and
the Navy Inventory Control Point (NAVICP).
   b. If slings are received from a Depot level maintenance activity
without proofload tags, initiate a QDR in accordance with OPNAVINST
4790.2 to the appropriate sling CFA/FST and the depot rework activity.
   c. Sling that have been repaired by welding or structural repair to
load bearing members shall be proofload tested.
   d. Sling components that are locally manufactured by the IMA shall
be proofload tested to the individual component proofload value, or the
sling assembly shall be tested following replacement with the untested
   e.    Sling  repaired   by    replacing   damaged   components   with
preproofloaded assemblies, such as wire rope cables or fabric webbing,
do not require proofload testing.
   f. Sling repaired by replacing common hard bolts, nuts, washers,
quick release pins, shackles, and other simple readily available
hardware with like items per applicable IPBs, do not require proofload

.14   Discuss   equipment   and  safety   requirements for   a  paint
booth/facility. [ref. g, ch. 8]
1. Paint Spray Booths.
    A paint spray booth is a ventilated structure that provides an
enclosed space for spraying operations. It confines and limits the
escape of sprays, vapors, and residues and directs them safely to an
exhaust system. Proper operation and maintenance of paint spray booth
equipment is essential to avoid the risk of fire.

2. Paint Spray Booth Types.
   The paint spray booth types installed at Navy aircraft intermediate
maintenance departments (AIMDs) include water-wash type, dry filter
type, and batch powder coating type.
   (a) Water-Wash Paint Spray Booth.
      The water-wash paint spray booth is equipped with a water-spray
system designed to minimize residue entering the exhaust system. The
system uses baffle plates and nozzles to maintain a water-spray curtain

Created by LTJG KyungNho "TACO" Kim                            9/27/2012
123. I Level Support Equipment Fundamentals                  Page 7 of 13

between the paint sprayer and the exhaust system. It is important that
the baffle plates and nozzles do not become covered or plugged with
residue. Clogged or plugged nozzles will decrease the efficiency of
residue collection and create open areas in the water-spray curtain.
The water-wash system also permits the recovery of over-spray finishing
material in a separation tank. This tank is normally installed in the
rear of the booth and is equipped with horizontal and vertical screens
to collect paint residue and sludge. Chemical additives in the water
form a low-density precipitate that can be skimmed off the water's
surface. Do not allow paint residue and sludge to accumulate. This
residue is highly flammable and should be stored in a closed metal
container until it can be disposed of properly.
   (b) Dry Filter Paint Spray Booth.
      The dry filter paint spray booth is equipped with disposable dry
filters to minimize the amount of residue entering the exhaust system.
The typical filter area is approximately 40 inches by 40 inches with
four dry filters-each 20 inches by 20 inches. Do not allow filters to
become paintloaded or paint may be forced back onto the operator and
out of the booth.
   (c) Batch Powder Coating Spray Booth.
      A powder booth is designed to contain over spray powder and allow
over spray powder collection for either re-use or disposal. Powder
containment is accomplished by drawing air produced by a fan with
sufficient velocity through all openings into the booth enclosure. The
over spray powder and air mixture in the booth enclosure is hen drawn
into the collector device where either a filter or cyclone separate the
powder from this containment air. The overspray powder collected is
then mixed with virgin powder, supplied directly to powder guns, or
disposed of. The powder collected for re-use should be sieved to remove
contamination and condition the powder for re-spraying onto the parts
to be coated.

3. Safety Features.
  (a) Exhaust System.
      Each booth has its own independent exhaust system that is
equipped with an explosion-proof fan motor. For safe operation of these
booths, the filtering medium must be maintained. If paint spray is not
filtered out, it will collect in the exhaust fan and ducts, creating a
fire hazard. It is highly important to maintain a minimal airflow of
150 feet per minute face velocity.
   (b) Filter System.
      In the dry filter booth described, replace filter pads when
visual examination indicates that the filters are loaded with paint. In
the water-wash booth, the baffle plates and nozzles should be examined
and stripped of paint when necessary. When the filters or baffles show
evidence of paint-loading, further inspection of the exhaust system,
including the exhaust fan, is required. In spray booths where touch-up
painting is conducted, inspect the filtering mechanisms every 3 months
for an accumulation of paint residues.
      For the powder coating spray booth above, filtration is
accomplished through either cartridge filtration. Cartridge filtration
systems typically use two sets of filters-primary filters and final
filters. Primary filters remove over spray from booth air, either for
recycling or disposal. Final filters capture any powder particulate
larger than 0.03 microns which is not removed through primary
filtration, ensuring that clean air is returned to the workplace. A
collector fan draws the powder laden contaminant/safety air through the

123. I Level Support Equipment Fundamentals                  Page 8 of 13

cartridge filters. Over time, collected powder builds up on the outside
of the cartridge. This "powder cake" enhances filter efficiency by
using the collected powder as additional filter material. Periodically,
powder is cleared from the filters by applying an intermittent back
pulse of compressed air to "shock" the powder free from the filter's
surface. The powder falls to the bottom of the collection unit and is
removed for re-use or disposal. The cartridge system tends to be highly
efficient for recovering large volumes of powder, with average recovery
rates ranging from 95-98%.
   (c) Air Filter Gauge (Dry Filter Paint Spray Booth).
      The dry filter paint spray booth is equipped with a flex tube
manometer that serves as an air filter gage. Newly purchased spray
booths are supplied with green and red stick-on markers in the shape of
an arrowhead. In accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations,
place the green arrow at the 1/4inch graduation mark on the manometer
water column and the red arrow at the 5/8-inch mark. The 1/4-inch mark
represents the static airflow condition, and the 5/8-inch mark
represents the point at which the filter should be replaced.

4. Safe Operation.
   Safe operation of a paint spray booth is following:
   (a) Physical Layout. No open flame, sparkproducing equipment,
incandescent lamps, or electrical receptacles should be used or
installed in the space extending 20 feet horizontally from the open
front of the spray booth and vertically from the deck to 3 feet above
the top of the booth.
   (b) Portable Equipment Restrictions. The use of portable equipment
is restricted during spraying operations. This includes the preparation
of material, spraying, and prescribed exhaust time.
   (c) Electrical Grounds. All metal parts of the spray booth,
including exhaust ducts and spray, must be electrically grounded.
   (d) Flammable Liquids. Only a 1 day or one shift supply of flammable
liquids may be present in the booth when the booth is in use.
   (e) Drying Spaces. Drying spaces must be adequately ventilated;
otherwise, they must be regulated as spraying areas.
   (f) Exhaust Fan. When paint spraying operations are completed, the
exhaust fan should be run a minimum of 3 minutes to purge vapors from
the booth.
   (g) Fire Extinguisher. Keep an 18pound, portable purple-k-powder
(PKP) fire extinguisher, or equivalent, within 5 feet of the booth's

document, the Table of Basic Allowance for P-3 Mobile Maintenance
support system/advanced base functional Component (MMSS/ABFC) Aviation
Activities with no aircraft assigned, NAVAIR 00-35-38-3 Part 4
   2. Inventory.
      Inventory reporting of in-use MF equipment will originate with
the reporting custodian. Annual inventory reports will be consolidated
by ACCs and COMMARFORs and then forwarded to NAVAIRHQ MFPST Leader(Air-
3.1). Records of in-use assets are required by NAVAIR for replenishment
planning and forwarding data to higher authority.
   3. Transfer/Receipt.
      Report Symbol NAVAIR 13670-4, Mobile Facility Transfer/Receipt
Report, applies to reporting transfers and receipts of MFs and MF
ancillary equipments. Equipment custodians will report by naval message
all transfers and receipts of MFs and MF Program major related
equipment. Submittal by message during minimize is not authorized.

c. Mobilization requirements [ref. j, encl. 1]
   Navy requirements for MFs and ancillary equipment are normally
developed on an individual weapon system basis and for specific
applications. Marine Corps requirements are generated from the Table of
Basic Allowance (TBA) provided by the Commandant of the Marine Corps to
support Marine Corps expeditionary deployment concepts.
   The leader will convene an MF program review meeting annually at
designated government activities.

d. PM requirements [ref. j, encl. 1]
   1. MF equipment will be maintained following applicable equipment
manuals and under maintenance management systems for SE.
   2. Corrosion Control and preservation will be accomplished.
   3. When not in use, jack assemblies, butting kits, ECU access panels,
and end doors will be removed, preserved, and stored in an area
protected from the weather. Also, mobilizers will be preserved and
properly stored when not in use. MF side opening panels will be
properly stored in the bracket assemblies provided unless MFs are not
to be stacked which will require storage with other removed equipment.
   4. Organization and intermediate level maintenance of MF equipment
will   be  accomplished   in  the   same  manner   prescribed   for  SE.
Organizational level maintenance of all MF Program equipment will be
the responsibility of the user. Intermediate level maintenance of MF
Program equipment used in support of aircraft / weapon system
maintenance is the responsibility of the supporting AIMD or Marine
Aviation Logistics Squadron (MALS). Scheduled maintenance will be
accomplished following the applicable Periodic Maintenance Requirements
Manual (PMRM) or appropriate maintenance manuals. Additionally, TYCOMs,
ACC, or COMMARFORs will establish a program for CSC recertification,
and ensure that no MF is transferred with less than sixty days
remaining before recertification is required.
   5. Depot level maintenance for all MF program ancillary equipment
will be accomplished under the guidelines established for SE. Budgeting
for depot level rework of generator sets is based on the assumption
that, during peacetime, generators are operated in garrison on ly for
emergencies, run up, periodic tests, and temporary deployments.

(PDB). The LIR will be initiated when an MF and PDB is internally
configured by the industrial configuration activity and will be
maintained by the LIR’s custodian. The LIR is similar to the Aircraft
Inventory   Record,   but  is  a   single  document.  Instructions  for
maintaining the LIR and OPNAV 4790/51, are contained in the LIR, and
will be included in ACC and COMMARFOR implementing directives. The LIR
is divided into to sections.
      a. Part I    OPNAV 4790/51, as a minimum, this form will be
maintained for the MF, Mobile facility Program (MFP) Tactical
Electrical Power Distribution system (TEPDS) and ECU. OPNAV 4790/51 is
also required to be maintained for generators, mibilizers, and mobile
frequency changers.
      b. Part II the inventory record section, MFs will no be
transferred   with   inventory   shortages  without  approval   of  the
appropriate ACC or COMMARFOR.

f. TD requirements (SEC/62, SEB/63) [ref. k]

g. Prime/ancillary equipment [ref. j, encl. 2]
1. Ancillary Equipment.
   Generators, mobilizers, spreader bars, mobile frequency converters,
lifting slings, jacks, ECUs, Solid state frequency converters,
grounding rods, butting kits, power bables, etc.
2. Prime Equipment.
   That equipment which the MF is designed specifically to contain.
This includes maintenance SE and material storage equipment as well as
administrative and operational support items.

Training Fact Sheet
CFC Refrigerant Recycling
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)


Sections 608 and 609 of the Clean Air Act Amendments (CAA), 1990, CFC Refrigerant
Recycling Requirements-Mandatory Technician Training, part of a comprehensive
program to limit release of ozone depleting substances.

Who is covered:

Servicing of Non-Motor Vehicle Appliances

Section 608 of CAA applies to personnel who evacuate and recover CFC's from non-
motor vehicle appliances or refrigeration systems. Appliance types are described in the
definitions section below. EPA has defined these categories of technicians:

      Type I technicians - persons who maintain, service or repair small appliances
      Type II technicians - persons who maintain, service, repair or dispose of high or
       very high pressure appliances, except small appliances and motor vehicle air-
       conditioning systems
      Type III technicians - persons who maintain, service, repair or dispose of low-
       pressure appliances
      Universal technicians - persons who maintain, service or repair low and high
       pressure equipment, including small appliances

Servicing of Motor Vehicle Air Conditioners

      Under Section 609 of CAA, personnel who service motor vehicle air conditioners
       were required to be properly trained and certified by August 13, 1992. This is a
       separate certification from non-automotive appliances. Personnel who are
       certified on automotive applications cannot work on non-automotive applications
       and vice versa without obtaining the appropriate certification.
      Persons who maintain, service or repair motor vehicle-like appliances (e.g. farm
       equipment and other non-road vehicles) must either be properly certified as Type
       II technicians or complete the training and certification test offered by a training
       and certification program approved under Section 609 (motor vehicle air

Training addresses service procedures, purity of recycled refrigerant, environmental
consequences of refrigerant release, adverse effects of stratospheric ozone layer depletion,
and EPA regulations. Under Section 608 EPA certifies only the tests which are
administered. Under Section 609, EPA certifies both the training programs and the tests.
This department has a list of such EPA technician certification programs for both types of

When training is required:

      Class I and II CFC's must be removed prior to disposal or recycling of appliances
       by technicians who have been certified in an EPA approved program. This
       requirement becomes effective November 14, 1994.
      In addition, sale of Class I and II CFC's will be restricted only to certified
       technicians, effective November 14, 1994.

      Technicians who service motor vehicle air conditioners must be certified before
       beginning this work.

Recordkeeping requirements:

Each department that has personnel who are certified should keep a record of that
certification in a department file. This may be required for purchase of CFC materials, or
may be requested during an inspection by an outside regulatory agency such as the
Minnesota Pollution Control Agency or EPA.

Chlorufluorocarbon (CFC) Recycling Definitions

Appliance means any device which contains and uses a class I (CFC) or class II (HCFC)
substance as a refrigerant and which is used for household or commercial purposes,
including any air conditioner, refrigerator, chiller or freezer. EPA interprets this
definition to include all air-conditioning and refrigeration equipment except that designed
and used exclusively for military purposes.

High pressure appliance means an appliance that uses a refrigerant with a boiling point
between - 50 and 10 degrees Centigrade at atmospheric pressure (29.9 inches of mercury).
This definition includes but is not limited to appliances using refrigerants -12, -22, -114, -
500, or -502.

Created by LTJG KyungNho "TACO" Kim                                               9/27/2012
123. I Level Support Equipment Fundamentals                                   Page 13 of 13

MVAC-like appliance means mechanical vapor compression, open-drive compressor
appliance used to cool the driver's or passenger's compartment of a non-road vehicle,
including agricultural and construction vehicles. This definition excludes appliances
using HCFC-22.

Motor vehicle air conditioner (MVAC) means any appliance that is a motor vehicle air
conditioner as defined in 40 CFR part 82, subpart B.

Recover means to remove refrigerant in any condition from an appliance and store it in an
external container without necessarily testing or processing it in any way.

Recycle means to extract refrigerant from an appliance and clean refrigerant for reuse
without meeting all of the requirements for reclamation. In general, recycled refrigerant is
refrigerant that is cleaned using oil separation and single or multiple passes through
devices, such as replaceable core filter-driers, which reduce moisture, acidity, and
particulate matter.

Small appliance means any of the following products that are fully manufactured,
charged, and hermetically sealed in a factory with five pounds or less of refrigerant:
refrigerators and freezers designed for home use, room air conditioners (including
window air conditioners and packaged terminal air conditioners), packaged terminal heat
pumps, dehumidifiers, under-the-counter-ice makers, vending machines, and drinking
water coolers.

Technician means any person who performs maintenance, service, or repair that could
reasonably be expected to release class I (CFC) or class II (HCFC) substances into the
atmosphere, including but not limited to installers, contractor employees, in-house
servicing personnel, and in some cases, owners. Technician also means any person
disposing of appliances except for small appliances.

Very high-pressure appliance means an appliance that uses a refrigerant with a boiling
point below - 50 degrees Centigrade at atmospheric pressure (29.9 inches of mercury).
This definition includes but is not limited to equipment utilizing refrigerants -13 and -503.
