REQUIREMENTS 3.1 Surface Finishing. All containers shall be glass bead blasted on exterior surfaces only to provide a uniform matte finish that will hide minor surface imperfections, such as scratches, weld irregularities, etc. Size #8 glass beads per MIL-G-9954 shall be used with direct air pressure ranging from 50 to 70 PSIG. A Separator shall be used to provide a reclaim efficiency of 90%, i.e., a minimum of 90% by weight of the original sized material shall be in the reclaim. The glass bead media shall be maintained in a condition free from contamination with other metals, i.e., The media shall not have been used to blast equipment containing other metals or alloys. 3.2 WELDING. (Aluminum). Proper controls shall be used to prevent melt through or burn through. Welder qualification shall be to MIL-STD-1595A. Filler for welding 6061 alloy shall be 4043. Filler for welding 5000 series alloys to themselves or to 6061 shall be 5356 or 5556. Welding and weld inspection shall be in accordance with MIL-W-22248, Class 4, except that: (A) visual inspection shall include 5X (5 power) magnification when a suspect condition is to be examined beyond the capability of normal vision. (B) critical and major welds may be subjected to further non-destructive testing (such as dye penetrant inspection) as prescribed by the buying activity. 3.3 WORK INSTRUCTIONS. Work instructions shall be posted at the operator's work station giving procedures to control the welding process, i.e., filler material, weld size, electrical and gas characteristics, including flow rate. 3.4 MATERIALS AND MATERIALS CONTROL. The quality program shall assure that the materials used in fabrication or processing, i.e., base metals and weld filler material, conform to the applicable physical, chemical and other technical requirements (supplier's certification is sufficient). 3.5 CONTROLS. Weld filler materials shall be clearly identified and segregated from each other both when in storage and at the work station. Work station environment shall be controlled to prevent conditions adverse to proper gas shielding. 3.6 CLEANING. Parts to be welded shall be chemically cleaned to remove surface soils such as oils, waxes, grease, inks, etc. except that uninhibited alkaline solutions such as sodium hydroxide shall NOT be used. 3.7 DEOXIDIZING. The cleaned parts shall be chemically deoxidized NO MORE THAN 10 DAYS PRIOR TO WELDING to remove thick surface oxide films. (If the material or work is exposed to an outdoor environment, this time limit shall be reduced to a maximum of 3 days, to account for atmospheric effects.) Mechanical cleaning methods shall be applied just prior to the actual start of welding, to remove any reoxidation or residual thin oxide films. 3.7.1 CHEMICAL TREATMENT. An acid deoxidizing treatment shall be applied by either immersion or brushing/wiping. Deoxidizers acceptable for use shall include nitric acid, sulfuric chromic, phosphoric chromic, or equivalent solutions. Sodium hydroxide solutions shall not be used. Care shall be taken to assure 100% solution coverage of the area to be welded. To allow an adequately sized deoxidized area for good welding, the solution shall be applied to an area extending at least 2 inches from the weld site, or ending at any closer adjacent edge. 3.7.2 MECHANICAL MEANS. Immediately prior to welding, mechanical cleaning methods shall be applied to the weld areas previously chemically treated to assure removal of residual or reformed oxides, if any. Acceptable methods of mechanical cleaning include stainless steel wire brushing, scraping, filing, or sanding. However, abrasives containing iron and its oxides, steel wool and wire, and copper alloy based wire, which may become embedded with galvanically active metals and accelerate corrosion of aluminum alloys shall NOT be used. Mechanical methods shall be vigorous enough to adequately remove any residual oxide films, but gentle enough to avoid forming an excessively rough surface in the comparatively soft metal underneath. 3.8 One third (1/3) unit of desiccant (MIL-D-3464, Type II nondusting) per cubic foot of container interior volume shall be placed in desiccant holder of each container at time of shipment. 3.9 At faying surfaces, discontinuous welds, or other areas where atmospheric liquids may be retained by capillary action, the crevice shall be sealed using Sealing Compound MIL-S-81733 or equivalent. 3.10 Reference to Cadmium plating shall be deleted and the following substituted: "Finish shall be electrodeposited alkaline Zinc-Nickel Alloy in accordance with ASTM B 841 Class 1, Type B, Grade 3." 3.11 The shock mount listed in the drawing package (whether identified as sole source, recommended, or suggested) has been tested and approved for the shock mitigation system of this container.

The contractor shall contact NAVICP code ;N241.17; or code 0771.10 for the alphanumeric sequential serial number group that makes up part of the UID. The UIDwill be included on the nameplate in data matrix format. 4. QUALITY ASSURANCE Contact the contracting officer listed in block 5 page one of the contract for first article location. 4.1 100% PRODUCTION LEAK TEST. Each container, uninstrumented and without dummy load, shall be raised to a height of 18 inches and allowed to fall freely to a concrete or similarly hard surface, landing flat on its base. The container shall then be prepared for testing by sealing all breathing devices and inserting suitable pressurized fittings and gauges. The container shall be closed and sealed in a normal manner. The pneumatic-pressure technique of method 5009 of Federal Test Method Standard No. 101C shall be used to detect leakage. An initial pressure setting equal to 1.0 + 0.1 - 0 PSIG shall be used. After stabilization, pressure shall be monitored for thirty minutes. Any loss in pressure in excess of 0.05 PSIG (adjusted for changes in temperature and barometric pressure) shall be cause for rejection.
