When trying to determine whether there's water in your fuel, sometimes a visual check just isn't enough. The Shell Water Detector is a device that can find even the most finely dispersed undissolved water in your jet fuel. It can be used in the following applications immediately after drawing jet fuel: A road vehicle or RTW sample before discharge into airport storage; Bottom samples from airport tanks immediately before release; Fueller and trailer compartment drain samples after each replenishment, hydrant dispenser filter drain samples after each aircraft fueling; Fueller filter drain samples after the first aircraft fueling, after filling or topping up either fueller or trailer; Drain samples from filtration equipment on hydrant delivery and refueller loading rack delivery.
You will need the following when testing your fuel:
- PVC gloves (gloves that are impervious to fuel)
- Safety Footwear
- Eye protection
- Anti-static clothing
- Clean glass jar or metal bucket with bonding cable attached
- Shell Water Detector capsule
- Record sheet
The detector consists of two parts:
a) A standard polythene or nylon hypodermic syringe of 5 ml capacity with a Record type nozzle fitting.
b) A plastic detector capsule in which is fitted a disc of filter paper treated with water sensitive chemicals.
