OPERATING PROCEDURES.  - continued - TM-10-3835-231-13_80
TM 10-3835-231-13 (b) Close valve (1). (c) Place sample container, furnished with portable test kit, under the valve (1). (d) Open the valve partially to slowly fill the sample container.  Close drain valve when filled. (e) Properly dispose of waste fuel. g. Test Equipment. (1) Each TPT is furnished with a petroleum aviation fuel contamination testing kit. (a) See TM 10-6630-240-12&P or TM 10-6630-218-10 for use of this kit. (b) Instructions for using the kit are also on a placard attached inside the storage chest. (c) The  kit  is  capable  of  testing  for  particulate  contaminants  specific  gravity  (API  standard)  free  water content. (2) An  extra  set  of  hydrometers  in  ranges  from  API  Gravity  290  to  810  are  supplied  with  the  fuel  sampling assembly.  See TM 10-6630-240-12&P or TM 10-6630-218-10 for hydrometer use. (3) Laboratory  facilities  are  not  furnished  for  a  TPT.    The  following  laboratories  are  normally  furnished  to  the operating area:    Airmobile  Petroleum  Laboratory  (NSN  6640-00-902-9711)  On-site  portable  facility  used  to  analyze fuel and oil for aircraft.    Petroleum  Base  Laboratory  (NSN  6640-00-303-4940)  On-site  portable  facility  used  to  analyze  fuel and oil for ground equipment. h. Sampling and Test Frequency. Sampling  and  test  frequency  are  determined  by  the  service  mission  and  specific  operations  of  the  particular  TPT.    It  is recommended that a specific sampling and test program be set up for each particular TPT.  The following are guidelines to assist in determining the sampling and testing requirements. NOTE The  pipeline  feeding  the  TPT  may  be  used  for  multiple  fuel  service.    When  a  new batch  of  fuel  is  shipped  up  the  pipeline,  the  dispatcher  will  advise  the  operating supervision at the TPT of its estimated time of arrival.  Between these batches is a section of co-mingling called the "interface". (1) Sampling and Testing to Determine Cut.  Testing will determine when interface has arrived and passed. (a) Take samples at sampling assembly (figure 2-19) and test in accordance with portable test kit. (b) Samples will be taken 30 minutes before the interface is scheduled to arrive and then at decreasing intervals down to 30 seconds until the change in characteristics indicate the arrival of the interface. 2-45
