Drycleaning Solvent (P-D-680, Type III) is TOXIC and flammable. Wear protective
goggles and gloves; use only in a well-ventilated area; avoid contact with skin,
eyes, and clothes; and, do not breathe vapors. Keep away from heat or flame.
Never smoke when using solvent; the flashpoint for drycleaning solvent Type III
is 200° F (93° C). Failure to do so may result in injury or death to personnel.
If personnel become dizzy while using cleaning solvent, immediately get fresh air
and medical help. If solvent contacts skin or clothes, flush with cold water. If

Keep It Clean. Dirt, grease, oil, and debris only get in the way and may cover up a serious problem. Clean as
you work and as needed. Use drycleaning solvent (P-D-680, Type III) on all metal surfaces. Use soap and water when
you clean rubber or plastic material.
Rust and Corrosion. Check Roller body and frame for rust and corrosion. If any bare metal or corrosion
exists, clean and apply a thin coat of oil. Report it to your supervisor.
Bolts, Nuts, and Screws. Check all attaching hardware for obvious looseness, missing, bent, or broken
condition. You can't try them all with a tool, but look for chipped paint, bare metal, or rust around bolt heads. If you find a
bolt, nut, or screw you think is loose, tighten it or report it to your supervisor.
Welds. Look for loose or chipped paint, rust, or gaps where parts are welded together. If you find a bad
weld, report it to your supervisor.
Electric Wires and Connectors. Look for cracked, frayed, or broken insulation, bare wires, and loose or
broken connectors. Tighten loose connectors. Report any damaged wires to your supervisor.
Hoses and Fluid Lines. Look for chafing, wear, damage, and leaks, and make sure clamps and fittings are
tight. Wet spots show leaks, but a stain around a fitting or connector can also mean a leak. If a leak comes from a loose
fitting or connector, tighten it. If something is broken or worn out, report it to your supervisor.
When you check for "operating condition," look at the component to see if it's serviceable.
