AIR CLEANER ASSEMBLY CLEANING AND INSPECTION
Solvent cleaning compound MIL-PRF-680 Type III is an environmentally compliant and low toxic
material. However, it may be irritating to the eyes and skin. Use protective gloves and goggles. Use in
well-ventilated areas. Keep away from open flames and other sources of ignition.
Particles blown by compressed air are hazardous. DO NOT exceed 15 psi (103 kPa) nozzle pressure
when drying parts with compressed air. Use a maximum of 30 psi (207 kPa) when cleaning compo-
nents. DO NOT direct compressed air against human skin. Failure to follow this warning may result in
injury or death. Make sure air stream is directed away from user and other personnel in the area. To pre-
vent injury, user must wear eye protection.
When removing the filter elements, always check the sealing surfaces on the elements for dirt on the clean
side. This will reveal possible filtration problems such as damaged canisters, incorrect element fit, or the
need for cleaning and/or repair of gasket surfaces.
Remove all gasket material from mounting surfaces.
Clean metal all parts EXCEPT filter elements with solvent.
Dry all parts with compressed air.
Inspect all parts for damage and replace as necessary.
