Water containing CW agents in less than these concentrations is permissible
for short durations of no more than 7 days and no more than five quarts of
water per person per day.
Test colors show good or bad water (pass/faiI).
(c) As Iittle as 20 minutes are needed to test the water, depending
upon ambient weather conditions.
(d) Supplies are sufficient to run 25 tests for each agent from one full
(e) Simulant CW agents are included in the kit to practice on for
Kit material is disposable. No refilis or repairs are required.
(g) The overall carrying case approximate measurements are:
170 cubic inches
NOTE: The AN-M2 kit will be phased out and replaced by the AN-M272 kit.
(4) Refill Kit, Chemical Agent Detector, ABC/M30A. The M30A1 chemical
agent detector refiII kit is used to detect the presence of G and V agents (nerve agents)
by enzymatic methods in concentration s as low as 0.02 ppm. Like the AN-M2 kit, it is a
component of the water quality control set.
b. Nonstandard Equipment. The water chemistry kit shown in figure 4-6 is a
commercial, nonstandard item of equipment which is sometimes purchased by "
preventive medicine units or activities and by regional divisions of the US Army
Environmental Hygiene Agency to enhance their water testing capabiIities. The
manufacturer of an item of this type normally publishes a detailed instruction manual
that accompanies the kit and gives step-by-step instructions on the conduct of the tests
and maintenance of the equipment. The kit illustrated in figure 4-6 uses two principal
