Abstract:

Eight unit containers stored outdoors at Erie Ordnance Depot for approximately three and a half years were opened, and the ordnance materiel stored in them was inspected. All containers had maintained satisfactory protective atmospheres, as evidenced by the good condition of the stored equipment. Some mechanical difficulties were observed, but these were not attributable to failures of either the storage methods or the containers. Deterioration of the materiel stored in these containers was no greater than that observed in an inspection conducted about two years ago.
