Section I. SERVICE UPON RECEIPT
Items must be uncrated carefully to prevent damage to either the container or the contents. The 26 cabinet units are
packed in fabricated cases of 1/2-inch plywood, bonded to 24-gage galvanized steel. The plywood is fastened around an
inner frame of spruce wood with the steel side of the plywood facing the container interior (figs. 2-1 and 2-2). All edges
are covered with 18-gage angles. Each case is provided with 6 recessed handles bolted to the armorply casing, and with
6 recessed locking fasteners that secure the casing to the case platform. The platform is constructed of 2-inch (50.8
mm) tongue and grooved spruce fastened to three 2- by 4-inch (50.8 mm by 101.60 mm) skids.
The case for the vapor pressure apparatus is similar to the case for the cabinet units, except that it is provided with 4
recessed handles and 4 locking fasteners. Equipment not contained in the cabinet units or armorply cases is packed in
wooden crates of varying sizes. All containers should be retained for future use in storing or shipping laboratory
Before proceeding, always keep in mind the WARNINGS listed in the front of this manual.
Upon receipt of the laboratory assembly, all containers must be checked by operating personnel to make certain that
every item is present and in condition for operation. Cabinet units should be checked to see that they are free of dents,
that doors and drawers are aligned and operable and that elevating platforms travel freely, lock in position as required,
and are free of excessive end or side play. Equipment mounted within the cabinets should be checked to see that it is
secure and that all fastening devices are present and snug. All other items of equipment, including glassware and
chemicals, should be inspected for breakage, cleanliness, and general serviceability.
