Technicians are testing pre-filter banks at the Blue Grass plant to ensure proper filtration and air flow.
Workers who will enter contaminated areas of the Blue Grass plant during operations are now training in suits designed specifically to protect them from exposure to chemical agent.
Technicians will use a purpose-built drilling device to access the cavity in 8-inch M426 projectiles to collect samples of GB agent to meet Blue Grass Laboratory needs.
Blue Grass monitoring and systemization personnel are checking filter-bank monitoring equipment to ensure chemical-agent vapors would be detected and prevented from being released into the atmosphere when the plant is in operations.
Blue Grass Chemical Agent-Destruction Pilot Plant (BGCAPP) technicians brought another piece of processing equipment online in March as they began testing the Rocket Shear Machine (RSM).
