CHAPTER 3
MAINTENANCE OF HYPERBARIC FACILITIES
3.1 DEFINITION OF TYPES OF MAINTENANCE
Maintenance Types. Maintenance, in the most general
3.1.1
terms,  involves  all  actions  required  to  keep  the  hyperbaric
facility in a condition which will allow the safe operation of the
For  NAVFAC  man-rated
facility  for  all  mission  requirements.
hyperbaric  facilities,  maintenance  consists  of  the  following
maintenance types:
o
General Maintenance
o
Repairs
o
Alterations
o
Overhauls
Each of these maintenance types is defined in the paragraphs that
follow.
3.1.2
General Maintenance.  General maintenance includes
all  maintenance  that  is  routine  in  nature  and  which  does  not
involve  the  fabrication  of  materials.
Included  under  general
maintenance are actions such as calibration, replacement of soft
goods, lubricant renewal, painting, filter replacement, system and
component  inspections,  cleaning,  sampling of oil and air,  and
testing.
General maintenance consists of two sub-elements which are
addressed in detail under Section 3 of this chapter:
o
Scheduled  Maintenance
o
Unscheduled  Maintenance
3.1.3
Repairs.
Repairs  are  maintenance  actions  which
require the fabrication of piping or components, and for which
there is no deviation from the original design.
Included  under
repairs are actions such as:
replacement  of  piping,  component
replacement involving welding, machining of parts or components,
cladding, stud replacement and weld repairs. It is emphasized that
repairs  do  not  involve  deviation  from  the  original  design.
Therefore, the replacement of a valve with the valve of a different
manufacturer  which  meets  the  original  design  specifications,
constitutes a repair.
Should the replacement valve not meet the
original design specifications, or should such specifications not
exist as is the case with some older facilities, then the valve
change would be treated as an alteration.
