Make sure all bed loading materials, supplies, equipment, and manpower are accounted for and ready to go ahead of the start date.Keep the sieve as dry as possible prior to loading by storing appropriately. In the field, stage the product for each bed so that all the materials to be loaded in a bed are present and ready to be loaded. Do not place packaging directly on the ground (keep on pallets) and cover with tarps when needed to keep packaging and the sieve dry. Maintained sealed packaging until time to loadinto the vessel or hopper (when applicable). Avoid loading in the rain whenever possible. Sieve readily adsorbs water from the air and the wetter the environment, the more water the sieve will adsorb during the loading.
