Contents

1112.1 Procedure

Samples of lubricating products are to be obtained by district Operations personnel when requested by the Director, General Services or the district General Services Manager.

If samples are taken, the sample size shall be as follows:

1112.1.1 Universal Hydraulic/Transmission Oil, Multi-Grade Lubricating Oil, Grade 15W-40, Multi-Purpose Gear Oil- Grade SAE 80W-90, Dexron II Transmission Fluid

Samples are to consist of one quart (1 liter) from each designated lot or blend. The samples are to be submitted to the Laboratory in one-quart (1 liter) screw top cans.

1112.1.2 Multi-Purpose Lithium Grease NLGI Grade 2

Samples are to consist of one gallon (4 liters) from each designated lot or blend. The samples are to be submitted to the Laboratory in one-gallon (4 liters) friction top cans.

Submit these samples to the Laboratory as directed in EPG 106.3.1.2 Submission of Laboratory Samples.

1112.2 Laboratory Testing Guidelines

This article establishes procedures for Laboratory testing and reporting samples of lubricating products. The requirements are set forth in a bid request.

1112.2.1 Procedure

1112.2.4 Sample Record

The sample record shall be completed in SiteManager, as described in Sample Record General Information , and shall indicate acceptance, qualified acceptance, or rejection. Appropriate remarks, as described in EPG 106.20 Reporting, are to be included in the remarks to clarify conditions of acceptance or rejection. Test results shall be reported on the appropriate templates under the Tests tab.
