PART B - DEVELOPMENT AND IMPLEMENTATION OF SITE SELECTION
AND MOVEMENT CRITERIA DURING PRE-DEPLOYMENT
Select an appropriate site.
Select a site that has ample space for maneuvering the laboratory and all support equipment.
Avoid ground that is excessively sloped; excessive sloping could hamper leveling of the laboratory.
Verify that the site is firm, has well-drained terrain, and is relatively free of surface rocks and large
At least 500 feet away from other areas of operation and not uphill or upstream from other facilities which
might be in the path of escaping fuel or vapor.
Not adjacent to low areas where dangerous vapors might collect.
Near a stream or pond (minimum of 500 ft for environmental reasons) or an established water facility.
This provides an outside water source for the petroleum laboratory water system.
Easy access to road nets. At least one road should run in the vicinity of the petroleum laboratory.
Utilize GPS to coordinate movement to selected site IAW TM 11-5825-291-13.
Perform set-up on the E-A.
Obtain a position.
Enter a waypoint.
Navigate to a waypoint.
PART C - MOBILE PETROLEUM LABORATORY PMCS
General PMCS procedures verification. Ensure that the following general procedures are
accomplished by assigned personnel concerning PMCS of the mobile laboratory:
Inspect the petroleum lab body exterior starting at the rear to cover rear, curbside, roadside, front, top,
and bottom. Inspect for damage, tears, breaks, or corrosion.
Service petroleum laboratory exterior IAW TM 9-2330-362-14&P.
Inspect and service the Electronic Control Units (ECUs) in accordance with TM 5-4120-371-14.
Remove the overpack boxes.
Inspect laboratory for broken equipment or equipment that is loose and not secured.
Close doors and vents to determine if light leak exists.
Inspect doors for damaged or rotted seals and tightness of closure.
Inspect interior for evidence of water damage, fungi, mildew, or corrosion.
Inventory section contents against Components of End Item and Basic Issue Items Lists (TM 10-6640-
215-13, Appendix C).
Inventory consumable supplies contained in section (TM 10-6640-215-13, Appendix E).
Ensure that any damage or discrepancies are reported IAW AR 735-11 and AR 735-11-2.
Operational Checks. Set petroleum laboratory up and conduct operational checks (to include Set-up,
Power-up and Shut-down procedures) IAW Chapter 2 of TM 10-6640-215-13, when operators are available
and power can be safely provided to the van body. Ensure that any damage or discrepancies are reported
IAW AR 735-11 and AR 735-11-2.
PART D - VERIFYING THAT THE MOBILE LABORATORY HAS BEEN
PACKED AND SECURED IAW TM 10-6640-215-13
Chemical/Hazardous Waste Storage.
Loose Test/Support Equipment and Supplies.
Drain and Clean Laboratory Equipment.
Manometer, Recording Pressure Gage, and Barometer are properly secured.
