Dieselcraft Fluid Engineering has developed a line of sensors to detect water at the bottom of tanks before if get dispensed, or for installation in water separators to alarm the user of water presence.

The Dieselcraft Model 06-5 and 06-6SP Sensors are a solid-state sending unit and a self-grounding stainless steel probe. The Model 06-5 unit is designed specifically to detect water in diesel fuel and gasoline but will also detect water in fluids less conductive than water. The 06-6SP is supplied with an addition output lead to use with a PCL control to send an alarm to shut down the equipment.

The ABS electronic enclosure houses two LED lights, the Green LED light indicates the sensor has power and is ready to work. The larger Red LED will illuminate when water is detected. The unit also incorporates an audible alarm, which sounds for five seconds.

The new Model FWS-HH portable water detector is a hand-held unit that can be used in conjunction with the tank dipping process. When attached to the dipping rod no paste is needed. Turn it on, dip it and if water is at the tank bottom the alarm sounds.
