At 10:30 a.m. on September 17, 2018, a maintenance employee was servicing a rota ry airlock that was making noise and in need of lubrication. The employee operat ed an electrical disconnect to shut off the airlock before removing the airlock plug to apply the spray lubricant. He then replaced the plug and restarted the airlock, but the noise was still present.
