Section II. DESCRIPTION AND DATA
The petroleum base laboratory assembly (figs. 1-1 thru 1-5) is used at fixed installations to perform certain designated
tests on petroleum products, such as gasoline, diesel fuel, kerosene, lubricating oil and grease. The laboratory assembly
includes 26 cabinets and all of the laboratory apparatus and materials required to perform its assigned function. At the
rear of the cabinets, integral service lines for electricity, water, propane gas, compressed air, and drainage are mounted.
The working space necessary for conducting the required laboratory tests is provided by the tops of the cabinet units.
The units may be combined in various arrangements to fully utilize available floor space and to permit a compact and
efficient work area. After a suitable laboratory layout is selected, the cabinets are joined by coupling the service lines.
Laboratory apparatus and materials are listed in Appendix C.
