Table 4-1.  Unit Preventive Maintenance Checks and Services for Fire Suppression Equipment Trailer Set
TM 10-4210-235-13 Section IV.  UNIT PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES (PMCS) 4-6.  GENERAL. a. Systematic, periodic, preventive maintenance checks and services (PMCS) are essential to insure that the fire suppression equipment set 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   complete   failure   of   the equipment.  Any effective preventive maintenance program must begin with training the operators to report all unusual conditions that they note during their PMCS or actual operation. b. A  schedule  for  unit  preventive  maintenance  inspection  and  service  should  be  established  immediately  after installation of the fire suppression equipment set.  A quarterly interval, equal to three calendar months, is recommended for usual operating conditions.  When operating under unusual conditions, such as a very dusty, sandy, wet, or humid environment, It may be necessary to reduce the interval to monthly or even less If conditions are extreme. c. Table  4-1  lists  the  unit  preventive  maintenance  checks  and  services  that  should  be  performed  at  quarterly  (or otherwise established) intervals.  The PMCS items in the table have been arranged and numbered in a logical sequence to provide for greater personnel efficiency and least amount of required maintenance downtime The paragraph reference information    included    In    the    procedure    column    provides    the    paragraph    number    where    detailed,    step-by-step disassembly/reassembly maintenance procedures may be found. d. Be sure to perform your PMCS each time the Fire Suppression Equipment Set is used e. Use DA Form 2404 (Equipment Inspection and Maintenance Worksheet) to record any faults that you discover performing  your  PMCS  The  item  number  column  in  table  4-1  will  be  used  as  a  source  of  item  numbers  for  the  TM Number Column on this form.  You DO NOT need to record faults that you fix. 4-7.  PMCS PROCEDURES. a. The "INTERVAL" column of table 4-1 tells you when to do a certain check or service b. The "PROCEDURE" column of table 4-1 tells you how to do required checks and services. NOTE Terms  "ready/available"  and  "mission  capable"  refer  to  same  status:  Equipment  is  on  hand and ready to perform its mission.  (See DA Pam 738-750.) c. The  "NOT  FULLY  MISSION  CAPABLE  IF:"  column  in  table  4-1  tells  you  when  your  equipment  is  non-mission capable and why it cannot be used. 4-4
