Abstract:

Tests were performed on military standard and commercial filtercoalescer elements to compare their ability to coalesce suspended water from hydrocarbon fuels at temperatures approximately 40 to 65 F. Test fuels were turbine fuel, JP-5, and diesel fuel, No. 2. Comparison tests of two manufacturers of water-in-fuel monitors turbidimeters were performed. Charts showing correlations were prepared and formulas were derived. Author
