specified coating procedures.
7.4.2.2 All connection points (screws, welding etc.) are to be checked visually and
rectified if necessary.
7.4.3 Fluid Reservoir
7.4.3.1 Drain the level of water-based fluid down to above the suction outlets of the
tank. The Oceanic EPF property to vaporize will take care of the preservation
of the rest of the tank.
7.4.3.2 Check the breather and make sure they are kept clean.

7.4.6 Suppressors
7.4.6.1 The suppressors need to be filled with preservation fluid, which will be taken
care of when preserving the HPU Unit.
7.4.6.2 Purge and precharge the bladder at 10 to 50 psi.
7.4.7 Filters
7.4.7.1 The unit is equipped with High-pressure filters and suction filters. The filter
elements should be removed from their bodies.
7.4.7.2 Further, the filter elements should be replaced if it is not possible to clean
them. If they can be cleaned, they should be dried and stored in a clean and
sealed container. All filters should be manufactured in order to recondition or
replace the filter elements. Ensure that there is no pressure at the filter prior to
unscrew the housing.
7.4.7.3 The unit is equipped with high-pressure filters and suction filters. The filter
components are made out of stainless steel meshes. It is recommended to
remove the filter element from its body. The filter elements then need to be
cleaned, dried and stored in a clean and sealed container
7.4.8 Strainer
The strainers need to be cleaned before storage
7.4.9 Flowmeter
Make sure the flowmeters are filled with preservation fluid. It is recommended to check
the inside of the flowmeter every six (6) months for internal component degradation.
7.4.10 Solenoid Valves
Before storage, all exhaust ports on the solenoid valves need to be plugged in order to
prevent from dust and humidity ingress.
7.4.11 Accumulators (Bladder/Piston)
7.4.11.1 All accumulators to be stored in a vertical position with between 10 and 50 PSI
pre-charge. They should be vented first then pre-charged at 10 to 50 PSI.
7.4.11.2 Accumulators need to be stored dry
7.4.11.3 Air accumulators/receivers must be vented and drained of water.
7.4.12 Air / Oil lubricator
Check oil level in the air lubricator and refill if needed.
7.4.13 Air Accumulator / Receiver
Air accumulators/receivers must be vented and drained of water.
7.4.14 Rubber Goods
7.4.14.1 Keep the rubber storage area as dark as possible and preferably indoors, away
from skylights or windows and with subdued or indirect artificial lighting.
7.4.14.2 Select the coolest location possible and be sure that no heaters or stoves are
nearby and particularly that the direct blast from a space heater does not blow
on the rubber parts.
7.4.14.3 Be sure that no electrical machinery (motors, switch gear, or any high voltage
equipment producing corona) is near the rubber goods and that drafts will not
carry the atmosphere from electrical machinery to the area in which the rubber
goods are stored.

7.4.14.4 The practice of first in - first out is essential with rubber goods. There is a
natural tendency to remove parts from the front of a bin and when stock is
replenished to leave the parts that are in the back in place, in which case years
might pass before these are finally pulled out for use.
7.4.14.5 Store rubber goods in a relaxed position. For example, do NOT hang o-rings on
nails. Where possible, do not keep assemblies in stock where the rubber goods
are stretched in order to assemble them on the part. For example, o-rings on
blanking plugs, tubing hangers and 'X' bushing. In some cases this is difficult as
it is with the aforementioned 'X' bushings. On these, periodic inspection should
be employed to detect any signs of aging as quickly as possible.
7.4.14.6 On parts, such as the 'X' bushing rings, where we know the rubber parts will be
stretched in storage, the best age-resistant compounds that are available, are
used.
7.4.14.7 Keep storage as dry as possible and remove any oil, gas, etc. of hydro-carbon
nature that may accidentally get on the rubber.
7.4.14.8 Do not store the rubber goods on top shelves near galvanized roofs. There are
several reasons for this; one is that heat is passed through galvanized roofing
and also there is some opinion that ozone may be generated in this area.
7.4.14.9 If possible, store rubber goods in buildings of wooden construction and wooden
shelves. Wood is believed to scavenger ozone quite effectively.
7.4.14.10 If storing for extended periods is unavoidable, sealed containers will aid
considerably; impervious surface coverings such as "Sea-Peel" or waxing will
help.
7.4.15 Hydraulic Hoses
7.4.15.1 Before placing a hose in storage, it should be completely drained.
7.4.15.2 Whenever feasible, store the hose in the original wooden shipping crate. This
will provide some protection against the deteriorating effects of solvents,
corrosive liquids, ozone and sunlight. Hose should be stored so that the coils
are in a horizontal plane.
7.4.15.3 Certain rodents and insects will damage the hose. Adequate protection from
them should be provided.
7.4.15.4 The ideal temperature for storing the hose ranges from 50°F (10°C) to 70°F
(21°C) with a maximum limit of 100°F (38°C). If stored below 32°F (0°C), the
hose will become stiff and would require warming before placed in service. The
hose should not be stored near sources of heat, such as radiators, base
heaters, etc., nor should the hose be stored under conditions of high or low
humidity.
7.4.15.5 To avoid the adverse effects of high ozone concentration, the hose should not
be stored near electrical equipment that may generate ozone or be stored for
any lengthy period in geographical areas of known high ozone concentration.
Exposure to direct or reflected sunlight - even through windows - should also be
avoided.
