Presentation Transcript

  1. Storage and Handling

  2. Calculation of Storage Space Requirements Default distances from packages to walls and ceiling (or attachments on walls such as heaters): 500mm If 500mm is impractical, absolute minimum is: 150mm If less than 500mm, review periodically – aim to adjust stock to achieve a 500mm gap

  3. Calculation of Storage Space Requirements 100mm from the floor Aisles wide enough for handling (Usually 2m for MHE, 1m for a palletiser) 20mm air gap around each pallet

  4. Calculation of Storage Space Requirements - Example

  5. Calculation of Storage Space Requirements - Example

  6. Stacking

  7. Stacking Criteria • Storage surfaces should be firm and level • Packages dry, clean and serviceable • Stacked by Lot or batch numbers • Identification markings can be easily seen • Constraints stock marked and segregated • Spaces for easy extraction of single packages • Space for rapid evacuation of personnel • Wooden battens may be used to ensure stability

  8. Stacking Criteria (cont) • Stacks should be square or pyramidal in shape • The top of stacks should be easily reached by MHE with the minimum of stock movement. • The height of a stack should not prevent the free air circulation from another stack • Stacking requirements and heights may vary to suit individual ammunition nature requirements, restrictions and local conditions

  9. Racking • Sufficient load bearing capacity • Stable • Not present a trip hazard • Load from the bottom up • Risk to people reaching up high • Risk of dropping packages from a height • Non-flammable or fire retardant material

  11. Storage Temperatures • More than 1 temperature restriction: • Use the maximum restriction • Nitrate ester based propellants: • Do not store for over 1 month if temperature is likely to remain below 5ºC • Coolest temperature ESH for: • Ammonium Nitrate/TNT or TNT • Incendiary, White Phosphorous or tear-producing compositions • Propelling charges or items containing propellant
