Areas that will entrap contaminants, making efficient decontamination extremely difficult, include the following:
space behind knobs and switches on the control panel, exposed heads of screws, areas adjacent to and behind exposed
wiring conduits, hinged areas of access doors, spaces behind externally mounted equipment specification data plates,
areas around external oil drain valve, retaining chains for external receptacle covers, areas behind external receptacle
covers, access door locking mechanisms, recessed wells for access de-or handles, fuel caps, load output terminal board
access door, slave receptacles, frequency adjustment controls, areas around tie-down/lifting rings, crevices around ac-
cess doors, external screens covering ventilation areas, and areas adjacent to the external fuel drain valve. Replacement
of these items, if available, is the preferred method of decontamination. Conventional decontamination methods should
be used on these areas, while stressing the importance of thoroughness and the probability of some degree of continuing
contact and vapor hazard.
In an NBC contaminated environment, the generator set should be operated with all access doors closed to
reduce the effects of contamination.
The use of overhead shelters or chemical protective covers is recommended as an additional means of protec-
tion against contamination in accordance with FM 3-5. When using covers, care should be taken to provide adequate
space for air flow and exhaust.
For additional NBC information refer to FM 3-3 and 3-4. Other services use applicable publications for NBC.
