1-7. LOADING WATER PURIFICATION EQUIPMENT FOR SHIPMENT.
General. The water purification equipment shall be loaded and shipped in the van body and trailer. See
figure 1-8 for shipping dimension and clearance.
Loading by Lifting.
(1) If a crane with a lifting capacity in excess of 24,000 pounds (10,886 kilograms) is available, the
construction of a loading ramp is not necessary.
(2) Attach the sling assembly as illustrated in figures 4-4 through 4-7.
Before loading the equipment ensure there are no overhead wires and
cables in the way. Check for hoist and swing clearances.
(3) Lift unit a few inches off the ground to test for balance and crane capacity and operation.
(4) If balance is correct and crane is operating properly, continue to lift until unit is higher than height of
carrier. Swing unit over carrier and lower into place slowly.
(5) Remove slings and secure truck to carrier (para 1-7d).
Loading by Ramp.
(1) If a permanent ramp is not available a temporary ramp must be constructed from the ground to the
carrier. Use sufficiently heavy material. Make the incline angle as gradual as practicable and support the ramp planks
by blocking along their lengths to avoid sagging or slipping.
