PLTL-04 Workmanship and Texture
This test visually inspects oils or greases. For oils, we look for a clear and homogenous mixture with no suspended matter or sediment. For greases we look for a smooth homogenous mixture with no lumps or granular material. For both oils and grease, we also check for rancid, alcohol, perfume or other objectionable odors. Reported are our observations. If the sample is being tested for a military specification, we check for attributes listed in the specification and report our observations along with a “pass” or a “fail” rating.
