INSPECTING DEMOLITION MATERIALS
In this lesson, you will learn how to inspect the following demolition materials: M37 and M183 demolition charge
assemblies, the 40-lb. demolition cratering charge, the 15-lb. demolition shaped charge, time blasting fuse,
detonating cord, demolition firing devices, weatherproof time blasting fuse igniters, and blasting caps.
During an inspection, you must be able to identify and classify any defects that you find. In an actual inspection,
you would record defects and other information on an Ammunition Surveillance Inspection Report (ASIR). Use of
the ASIR is covered in another subcourse.
Before you begin an inspection of demolition materials, you will use Table 2-2 in SB 742-1 to determine the
correct sampling plan. Storage personnel will bring the samples to the inspection area and off-load them. Before
they do, you must determine which fire symbol to post. This information is contained in TM 9-1300-206.
