Product Id: 10025
The Shell Water Detector
is a device for determining the presence of finely
dispersed undissolved water in jet fuels at
concentrations lower than those normally
detectable by visual examination. Water
dispersions of this type can result from the
emulsification of a water/fuel mixture during
pumping or from precipitation of dissolved water
due to a fail in fuel temperature.
