Water Separation characteristics of aviation turbine fuels

ASTM D8073

The WSI is a new water separation instrument which was developed in conjunction with industry stakeholders.

The water coalescing property of filter materials is reduced by surfactants which inhibit the ability of the filter to remove water droplets from the fuel - i.e wet fuel passing through the filter. The WSI is designed to predict filter coalescer failure. The instrument is fully automatic with simple touch screen operation and uses patented Sonic Mixing Technology which eliminates any variables with water droplet size and ensures the same amount of energy is applied to each sample.

The WSI provides a rapid screening process for marine and truck offloading, loading terminals and fixed based operators (Airports); it also allows pipeline distribution terminals to quickly test fuel to ensure smooth flowing distribution.
