Repair Kit (Appendix C, Section II,
Emery Paper (Item 4, Appendix E)
Item 4 or 9) as applicable
(1) Minor leaks. (Figure 3-7)
Do not smoke, carry an open flame, or use any heat producing device near hose-
Iine during hoseline repair. Failure to observe this warning can result in fire, ex-
plosion, and death.
(a) Reduce pressure so that leak is diminished. Do not shutoff pressure completely or hose will flatten,
making repairs more difficult.
(b) Rotate damaged side (1) to top.
(c) Place support, planks or blocks (2) under hose (3) on both sides of damaged area. Leave about 6
inches (152.4 mm) clearance below damaged area.
Potential health hazards result from inhalation of petroleum solvent vapors and
from contact of solvent with skin. Use rubber gloves and hand cream for protec-
tion, and work with adequate ventilation
Dry cleaning solvent PD-680 used to clean parts is potentially dangerous to per-
sonnel and property. Avoid repeated and prolonged skin contact. Do not use near
open flame or excessive heat. Flash point of solvent is 100°F-138°F (38°C-60°C).
(d) Clean an area approximately 6 inches (0.52 mm) wide on either side of damaged area with dry clean-
(e) Apply a thin coat of rubber cement to cleaned area and allow it to become tacky. This will take approxi-
mately 5 minutes.
