SECTION III. PROCEDURES FOR THE TFPE
2.13 UNPACK TFPE CONTENTS.
The procedures for unpacking the TFPE are the same as the procedures for unpacking the
M300 FPE (see page 2-5) except that the foam packaging around the explosive containers will
be saved for repacking.
2.14 OPERATE TFPE.
The procedures for operating the TFPE are the same as the M300 FPE (see pages 2-7 thru 2-20)
a. The following components will be recovered for reuse instead of discarding:
(1) The black protective cover and the end cap on the inert explosive containers.
(2) The shipping tape securing the inert primaline around the inert explosive containers.
(3) The inert M81 and the weather-proofing plug on the inert M81.
b. When using the TFPE, the inert primaline may be damaged during recovery. It is not
necessary to cover inert explosive container with dirt after placing it in hole. If holes are
to be filled, first tie a strong cord (at least 6 feet in length) around neck of container to
assist in recovering the container. When lowering inert explosive container to bottom of
dug hole, hold on to free end of inert primaline and free end of cord.
