OPERATOR/CREW MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
Section I. PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE CHECKS AND SERVICES
To ensure that the petroleum base laboratory assembly is ready for operation at all times, it must be inspected
systematically so that defects may be discovered and corrected before they result in serious damage or failure. The
necessary preventive maintenance checks and services to be performed are listed and described in paragraph 3-2.
Defects discovered during operation of the unit will be noted for future correction to be made as soon as operation has
ceased. Stop operation immediately if a deficiency is noted during operation which would damage the equipment if
operation were continued. All deficiencies and shortcomings will be recorded together with the corrective action taken on
DA Form 2404 (Equipment Inspection and Maintenance Worksheet) at the earliest possible opportunity.
