Worried that there may be water in your fuel system? When looking just isn't enough, Shell AER3019 Water Detector is here to help. The easy-to-use pill-based water detection system positively identifies whether or not there is water in your fuel system. Itís more accurate than a visual check alone and takes the guesswork out of inspecting your fuel. The Shell Water Detector is able to find even the most finely dispersed undissolved water in your jet fuel so you can set up your water removal system before you take off.

Shell AER3019 Water Detector 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.

Shell Water Detector is sold by the case. Each case contains eight tubes and each tube has 10 pills. You will need a few additional pieces of equipment in addition to the Shell jet fuel water test kit in order to test your fuel. The following equipment is recommended:

  • PVC gloves (gloves that are impervious to fuel)
  • Safety Footwear
  • Eye protection
  • Anti-static clothing

Required Equipment:

  • Clean glass jar or metal bucket with bonding cable attached
  • Shell Water Detector capsule
  • Syringe
  • 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.


Step 1: Check the equipment

  • Detector capsule: examine the bottom of the tube to ensure the capsules have not assed their expiry date.
  • 5 ml syringe (0.2 fl oz) ? the syringe operates freely and the nozzle is not damaged
  • Glass jar or closed circuit sample: ensure the sample jar is clean and free from water

Step 2: Fit the capsule

  • Remove a capsule from the tube. Handle carefully and do not touch or allow any moisture onto the yellow paper of the capsule
  • Close the tube to avoid contamination of other capsules at ambient humidity.
  • Check that paper is uniformly yellow, if it is not, discard an use another capsule
  • Fit the capsule to the syringe with the plunger in the depressed position

Step 3: Draw a sample

  • Use the sample from the visual check you have just completed
  • If you do not already have the sample, follow the task breakdown procedures from the Visual Clear and Bright Procedure

Step 4: Immersion

  • Immerse the capsule and approximately half of the syringe using a circular motion into the sample
  • Ensure you are using gloves that are impervious to fuel

Step 5: Sample

  • Pull the plunger to draw 5 ml of fuel sample into the syringe

Step 6: Examine the capsule color

  • Withdraw the syringe from the fuel and examine the capsule immediately for any change of color in the centre wetted area of the capsule

Step 7: Results

  • If there is no color change, the sample is acceptable
  • The color of the centre can change to slight yellow/ green at very low dispersed water concentrations with the change to green becoming progressively more noticeable with increasing water content
  • A few green speckles or a slight change in color would be recorder as a "trace," a distinct color change would be recorder as "suspended water."

Step 8: After sampling

  • Dispose of the used capsule safely. It can only be used ONCE.
  • Empty the contents of the syringe back into the sample container and return into recovery tank
  • Complete the documentation

Interpretation of Shell Water Detector Results

The presence of suspended water is indicated by a change in color of the centre portion of the detector capsule. It changes from faint yellow to green if water is detected.

Storage Life

The life for unused Shell Water Detector capsules is nine months from the time of manufacture. The expiry date month and year is marked on the bottom of each tube of capsules. Unused capsules should be stored in their container with the cap screwed tightly to prevent discoloration by humidity. Each capsule must only be used once.
