OPERATION IN EXTREME CLIMATES. The Petroleum Laboratory is insulated and weatherproofed for operation in hot, cold, or moderate climates.  The shelter facility   provides   complete   protection   from   the   elements   for   personnel   and   equipment;   however,   under   extreme conditions, the following precautions are necessary. a. Cold Climates.  Extreme cold causes cables and wires to become hard, brittle and difficult to handle.  Be careful when handling the cables and connecting them to the petroleum laboratory, so that kinks and unnecessary loops will not result in permanent damage.  Make sure that connectors in the entrance boxes are free of frost, snow, and ice. Replace connector covers on receptacles as soon as a cable is disconnected.  Never drag or place an open cable ccnnector in the snow. NOTE The  water  lines  shall  be  drained  when  operating  in  areas  where  the temperature   can   fall   below   the   freezing   point   (upon   completion   of operations,  initiation  of  overnight/down-time  or  temporary  storage/non- use).  Follow procedures in paragraph 3.11.b.  for draining water lines. b. Hot  Climates.    In  hot,  dry  climates,  connectors,  and  receptacles  are  subject  to  damage  from  dust  and  dirt. Replace connector covers on receptacles when they are not in use.  Never place an open cable connector on the ground. c. Warm, Damp Climates.  In warm, damp climates, the equipment is subject to damage from moisture and fungi. Wipe all moisture and fungi from the equipment with a lint-free cloth. 2-11.
