Shipment Delivery Date.
Acceptable Condition for Samples and Sample Containers.
Samples should be taken IAW the appropriate ASTM Test Method and MIL-HDBK-200.
Samples should be representative of the information on the sample tag.
Containers should be tightly closed, with no wax, paraffin, rubber gaskets, pressure sensitive tape, or
any other contaminating substances.
Kerosene, jet fuel, and gasoline should be stored in cans or brown bottles to protect the product from the
Aviation fuel samples should be stored in brown or clear glass bottles if they are to be submitted for
water and sediment tests.
Assign a laboratory number and enter it into the top section of the sample tag.
The following information is to be logged in the sample logbook adjacent to the laboratory number assigned:
grade of product
date test completed
source of sample
Blocks 9 through 11 are completed as work is done.
Determine Test Sequence and Type of Test to be Performed. The sequence of samples to be
tested will be first come, first serve in the following priority:
Samples for emergency vehicles and aircraft.
Samples for crashed aircraft.
Re-samples for off-specification products.
Type test to be performed will be determined from MIL-HDBK-200 and product specifications.
Determine Laboratory Test Capabilities. The senior laboratory technician will supervise all testing
and will assign all tests to technicians. This will allow performance of many different tests concurrently,
eliminating unnecessary man-hours.
Hours will vary depending on capability of performing lean and rich mixture rating. The number of hours
required for one technician to perform various types of tests is as follows:
MAN-HOURS PER TEST TYPE
