thermometer for recording daily magazine
temperatures. These cards are replaced on the first day
of each month. The completed cards are removed from
the magazine, and the temperatures for each month are
posted in a permanent log. The Magazine Temperature
Record Cards are retained on file for a period of 1 year.
When recording magazine temperatures in the
permanent log, record temperatures in excess of 100°F
so they stand out (use red ink). If the temperature
exceeds 110°F in smokeless powder, rocket motor, and
JATO magazines, check the temperature hourly and
record it in a separate notebook. Transfer these recorded
temperatures to the permanent log on a daily basis. Any
magazine with a temperature consistently above 100°F
is reported to NAVSEASYSCOM.
