Section II. SETTING-UP PROCEDURES
2-4. ARRANGING UNITS.
When an acceptable layout for the base petroleum laboratory has been decided upon, the equipment is placed in
position. Before cabinets are positioned, the pipe rack of each cabinet is raised and locked. After cabinets are placed in
position, they are leveled by means of the four leveling bolts. The units must fit tightly against one another and their tops
must be flush. Proposed layouts for the base laboratory are described below.
a. Quonset Hut Layout. The proposed layout for the petroleum base laboratory within a Quonset hut (fig. 2-3)
provides for the laboratory proper, a supply room, a washroom and an octane room. In figure 2-3, item numbers 1
through 26 are identical with unit numbers 1 through 26 in paragraph 1-8. The cabinets, with their allied testing
equipment, are assembled along both side walls, the inside end wall, and along the center of the laboratory proper.
