4-23. General

The replacement of optical components, or helical focusing mounts, is not authorized. Components are matched, and if damaged beyond repair, the entire lens must be returned to the manufacturer for replacement of parts and calibration.

4-24. Cleaning

CAUTION: Do not wipe or brush inside surfaces of lens elements. They are generally soft-coated and will be damaged. Remove foreign material from inner surfaces with a syringe or light force of compressed air.

The materials and methods for cleaning lenses are listed in TM 11-6720-244-12, paragraph 4-6. Fungus, which attacks some optical glasses in tropical environments, may be removed as follows:

a. Material

Hydrogen-peroxide, 3% solution Ammonia, 28% solution Alcohol, 180 proof Distilled water

b. Removing Fungus.

(1) Just prior to use, mix 10-parts hydrogen peroxide with 3-parts ammonia solution.

(2) Moisten the lens surface with the solution and allow it to stand for several minutes.

(3) Wipe the lens surface with a clean piece of lens tissue.

(4) Thoroughly clean the lens surface with distilled water.

(5) If additional cleaning is required, wipe the surface with alcohol and dry with clean lens tissue.

NOTE: Fungus which has remained on an optical surface for a prolonged period etches the glass. In this instance, the entire lens must be returned to the manufacturer for replacement of the damaged element.
