Testing Sequence. The sequence of samples to be tested will be FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE in the following
Samples for emergency vehicles and aircraft
Samples for crashed aircraft
Samples of stalled vehicles
Re-samples for off-specification products
Sample Out Processing: The laboratory NCOIC, after all test results are returned to the senior laboratory
technician, begins the processing. Worksheets are reviewed to identify test results, record results and
recommended disposition in the remarks section of the section of the worksheets by the laboratory NCOIC. DA
Form 2077 (Petroleum Products Laboratory Analysis Report is typed from the worksheet (1 original, 3 copies)
and then reviewed by the laboratory NCOIC and signed by the laboratory officer.
DA Form 2077 disposition
One original for the laboratory official result file. (filed in laboratory number sequence)
One copy to the laboratory higher command.
Two copies to the sample submitting unit.
PART B LABORATORY TERMINOLOGY
Some of the terms related to petroleum operations (laboratory and supply), are as follows:
additive An agent used for improving existing characteristics or for imparting new characteristics to certain
American Petroleum Institute (API) The institute represents and is supported by the petroleum industry. It
standardizes the tools and equipment used by the industry and promotes the advancement of research in the
American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) A national scientific technical organization formed for the
development of standards or characteristics performance of materials, products, systems, and services and the
promotion of related knowledge.
API Gravity An arbitrary scale expressing the gravity or density of liquid petroleum products. The measuring
scale is calibrated in terms of degrees API. The gravity of any petroleum product is corrected to 60 Fahrenheit
automotive gasoline (MOGAS)
A hydrocarbon fuel for use
in internal combustion engines and procured
military under two specifications. The specification for leaded and unleaded gasoline is VV-G-(K)1690.
Specification MIL-G-3056 specifies combat grade type 1 and 11.
aviation gasoline (AVGAS) A hydrocarbon fuel for use in reciprocating piston-type aircraft engines. AVGAS is
characterized by high vapor pressure and distillation range and high tetraethyIlead content. It is procured by the
military under specification MIL-G-5572.
barge A flat-bottomed vessel used to carry cargo on inland waters or as lighterage service. Barges are usually
towed. A petroleum barge has internal tanks to store liquid cargo.
bitumen A mixture of hydrocarbons of natural or pyrogenous origin, or both, which are frequently accompanied
by their nonmetallic derivatives and which are completely soluble in carbon disulfide.
bottoms In a distilling operation, the portion of the charge remaining in the still or flask at the end of a run, in
pipe stilling or distillation, the portion which does not vaporize.
calibration The graduation
of a measuring instrument. The determination
centrifugal pump An apparatus that builds up head pressure using centrifugal force as the principal means and
angular velocity as the secondary means.
contaminated product A product in which one or more grades or types of products have been inadvertently
mixed, or a product containing foreign matter, such as dust, dirt, rust water, or emulsions.
