TM 10-6640-215-13 1-13. FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION OF PETROLEUM LABORATORY SUPPORT SYSTEMS - continued. i. Submersible Pump (Sump Pump).  The sump pump is constructed of high-impact, corrosion-resistant plastic with a built-in carrying handle.  A screened inlet prevents large solids from entering the pump.  It operates on I IOV, 60 Hz, single-phase power supplied from A1CB14 located in MAIN POWER PANEL NO. 1.  It pumps waste water from the drain tank to the forward deck drain. 1-14. FUNCTIONAL DESCRIPTION OF PETROLEUM LABORATORY UNIQUE EQUIPMENT. The  following  paragraphs  describe  some  of  the  equipment  mounted  or  stored  within  the  Petroleum  Laboratory.    For equipment not described in these paragraphs, refer to the appropriate equipment manual. a. Jet Fuel Thermal Oxidation Tester.    The  JFTOT  is  designed  to  fulfill  the  test  requirements  of  ASTM  test  D- 3241.  It operates on 110V, 60 Hz, single-phase power supplied by AICB3 located in the MAIN POWER PANEL.  It consists of a closed loop fuel system with a heater tube section, test filter and associated equipment for controlling and  measuring  the  heater  tube  temperature.    It  uses  water  for  bus  connector  and  fuel  cooling,  and  nitrogen  to pressurize the fuel system. b. Oxidation  Stability  Bath.    The  oxidation  stability  bath  is  designed  to  accomplish  the  requirements  of  ASTM tests D-525 and D-873.  It is mounted on the curbside countertop.  It operates on 110V, 60Hz, single-phase power supplied by AICB15 located in the MAIN POWER PANEL.  It consists of an electrically heated oxidation bath with a two-bomb capacity and a three-heat switch.  It is provided with a condenser to reduce evaporation of the bath water and two stainless steel bombs for conducting tests. c. Pressure Recording Gage.  The pressure recording gage is used to perform ASTM tests D-525 and D-873.  It is mounted   on   the   wall   adjacent   to   the   oxidation   stability   bath.      It   is   a   two-pen-type   recording   gage   with   clock mechanism.  It has a range of from 0 to 200 pounds (90.8 Kg/sq cm) in 2-pound divisions (.9 Kg/sq cm) recording charts and an ink set.  One complete revolution around the circular chart is equivalent to 24 hours.  The recording pressure gage is used to provide a continuous record of test results of the bombs under test in the oxidation stability bath. d. Reid Vapor Testing Bath.  The RVP bath is designed for ASTM tests D-323 and D-1267. It is mounted on the curbside countertop.  It operates on 110V, 60Hz, single-phase power supplied by A1CB16 located in MAIN POWER PANEL.    It  consists  of  the  bath,  a  rack  with  a  3-bomb  capacity,  a  1/30-hp  motor  and  stirrer,  a  thermometer,  an immersion  heater,  a  thermoregulator.    It  is  provided  with  bombs  for  testing  that  are  stored  in  a  rack  on  the  wall adjacent to the RVP bath and pressure gages which hang in brackets above the bomb rack. e. Manometer.    The  manometer  is  mounted  on  the  laboratory  curbside  wall,  above  the  RVP  bomb  bath.    The manometer provides the basic standard of pressure measurement.  It is used in the laboratory to calibrate the RVP gages.  It consists of a glass column supported within a frame and connected at the bottom by a U-shaped tube to the manometer fluid reservoir.  It has 1-30
