The sink consists of three major components. The following paragraphs describe
the components. Refer to figure 2-3.
a. Base Section. The parts in the base section serve a dual purpose. The
pieces provide a carrying case for all the other components when the unit is transported
or stored. When the sink is assembled for use, these parts provide a base and
reservoir for the unit. A grounding strap and clamp, the knee controlled valve, and
related hoses and fittings are located in the base section. See item 13 in figure 2-3.
b. Sink Section. The parts in the sink section in figure 2-3 are the sink (item
14), a detergent dispenser (item 8), a faucet (item 6), and the necessary hoses and
c. Power Unit. The power unit is connected through wiring and hoses to the
sink and base sections. It is supported by extension rods. Located externally on the
power unit is an indicator light, the heat and pump controls, a fuse holder, a selector
valve handle, a demountable fan, and fittings for various connecting lines. Located
within the power unit is a water mode selector valve, a terminal block, a water heater,
water, and the necessary interconnecting plumbing fittings.
The sink is packed in a disassembled form within a field chest (item 13 in figure
2-3). The field chest provides a sturdy, reinforced carrying, shipping, and storage case.
If the case is in good condition, it is a water tight case. To assemble the sink, perform
the procedures in the following paragraphs.
a. Mechanical Assembly.
Place the field chest upside down (lid secured).
(2) Release the chest latches and lift the chest bottom from the lid. (The
scrub sink components remain with the lid.)
(3) Release the restraining strap from the power unit. Release the catches
and remove the power unit from the lid.
(4) Release the restraining strap from the sink assembly. Remove the sink
from the lid, exposing the remaining components.
(5) Release the straps retaining the sink components. Note the location of
these items for repacking purposes.
(6) Remove all components from the lid. Lay them on a clean surface.
