Initial Inspection Disposal Criteria
- Visually inspect kit components. Kit component list is found in the NWCG National Fire Equipment System Catalog.
- Inspect for missing or damaged O-rings on faucet.
- Inspect for damage or cracking to hose line. Ensure that threaded pipe fittings inside the burner have been welded completely around. If not, have work done by a certified welder.
- Return to stock if kit is complete, has not been used or damaged, and is clean.
- Refurbish if initial inspection indicates kit was used or if components are missing or damaged.
- Dispose of bad hose lines, badly bent stove, urn, lid, and broken faucets.
- Clean heater components. Repaint if necessary with high-temperature paint.
- Clean with soap and water and disinfect urn, basket, bucket, lid, and faucets.
- All welding should be completed by a certified welder.
- Replace hose lines as necessary.
- Replace damaged or missing O-rings as necessary.
C. Testing for Performance
- Have a fire extinguisher in working area prior to testing burner performance.
- Connect stove and all fittings to propane source.
- Turn on tank with burner valve in “OFF” position.
- Check all fittings and connections for gas leaks using mild soap and water solution. NEVER INSPECT FOR LEAKS USING A MATCH OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF FLAME. Should a gas leak occur, shut off the gas supply to the burner immediately and wait a minimum of five minutes before repairing the leak.
- Once fuel line assembly is free of leaks, light burner and make sure it is operable.
- Reference the refurbishment standards for the inspection, testing and cleaning of propane tanks.
- Concerns and questions regarding propane fittings, regulators, and propane tanks should be directed to an authorized liquid propane gas service representative.
- Package one kit in NFES #000500 carton (22” x 22” x 36”).
