GENERAL MAINTENANCE (Contd)
6. Aluminum Oxidation/Corrosion.
All parts subject to corrosion must be lightly oiled after
cleaning and prior to storage.
Remove all evidence of corrosion.
BEB unit(s) will require touch-up of painted surfaces periodically. The BEB is
Chemical Agent Resistant Coating (CARC) painted. Notify field maintenance if BEB
or IBC requires touch-up of painted surfaces.
LOADING AND MOVEMENT OF EQUIPMENT
Do not lift a load greater than the rated load capacity of
the crane or materiel handling equipment. Failure to
comply may result in damage to equipment or possible
injury or death to personnel.
All personnel must stand clear of equipment prior to
lifting operations or serious injury or death may result.
The BEB weighs 9,300 lb (4,218.5 kg). The BEB with IBC
weighs a minimum of 11,100 lb (5,035 kg).
1. Transportation Data Plate. The transportation data plate is located on the
port side of the forward cockpit, describes shipping data as capacities, center of
gravity, and lifting points.
2. Slinging Provisions. BEB slinging provisions enable lifting of BEB for both
normal lift and external lift by helicopter. To lift BEB, connect lifting sling to
shackles on helicopter lifting points, each located on four corners of BEB. To lift
IBC, with or without BEB, connect sling to lifting eyes on side of IBC frame.
When BEB is tied down with IBC, tiedowns are to be attached to BEB and not
IBC. Lift points are located in relationship to BEB's center of gravity.
3. Center of Gravity. Refer
to Shipping Data Plate, WP 0002 00.
