Do not exceed the pressure prescribed to accomplish the relief valve test. Excessive
pressurization may cause catastrophic failure of the container and injury to personnel.
Pressurize Container. (Except main rotor blade containers and containers designed to MIL-D-6054).
Pressurize containers as follows:
For pressurized containers apply a maximum of 5 psig pressure.
For sealed containers equipped with low pressure two way relief valve pressurize to check proper operation
(1 to 1.5 psig) of relief valve (do not exceed 2 PSIG).
Replace defective pressure release valves.
Check containers for leaks by applying a soap and water solution to welds and sealing flanges.
For leaks found in sealing flanges. re-torque closure hardware or replace gaskets and seals as
necessary to eliminate leaks.
If leaks are found in welds, the container is unserviceable and must be repaired or replaced.
o. Marking. Replace markings which are incorrect, missing, or unreadable. Apply markings in accordance with MIL-
p. Historical Documentation. Seal component documentation as required by DA PAM 738-751 in a plastic bag and
place in records receptacle. Install receptacle cover.
Sealing. All serviceable (and unserviceable when possible) sealed containers will be stored sealed, with
the appropriate amount of dry desiccant.
