MIL-PRF-5606H Storage conditions
Prior to use in the intended equipment, the product may be stored under conditions of covered or uncovered storage in geographic areas that range in temperatures from -57°C to +49°C.
MIL-PRF-5606H InterchangeabilityThis fluid is completely compatible with:MIL-PRF-6083, MIL-PRF-46170 Type I,
MIL-PRF-87257, and MIL-PRF-83282 hydraulic fluids. It may be interchangeable with these fluids for some applications. The selection of the fluids to be used depends on the requirements of the operational system.
WARNING: This fluid may contain tricresyl phosphate (TCP) which may be absorbed through the skin and produce paralysis if taken internally. Appropriate protective measures should be taken to avoid such exposures. Decontaminate containers before reuse.
MIL-PRF-5606H Handling and safety precautions
Personnel should wear appropriate, impervious clothing when handling the product to prevent repeated or prolonged skin contact. Local appraisal is required to determine exact health and safety implications and to prescribe precise application of protective clothing. If skin or clothing becomes moistened with the product, personnel should promptly wash with soap or mild detergent and water. Respirators are not required unless there is an inhalation exposure to mists. Personnel should wear protective clothing when using the product and when cleaning up spills.
The accumulated waste fluid should be disposed of through a waste oil recovery program unless prohibited by local law. Otherwise, the product should be disposed of in accordance with local law and regulations promulgated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency under Public Law 94-580, Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976.
MIL-PRF-5606H Depot-type operations
Additionally, the used product, which has been drained from the hydraulic systems, should be combined with unused but contaminated fluid from partially full containers and then recycled. Fluid may be purified and reused in accordance with T.O. 42B2-1-3.
MIL-PRF-5606H Container disposal
Depending upon local regulations, tops from one-time-use containers may be discarded with ordinary refuse. Containers should be made as empty as possible using gravity draining, after which they are to be crushed and buried in a permitted sanitary landfill or incinerated with general refuse. No special decontamination procedures are required for empty containers or their lids.
