WSI Water Separation Instrument
ASTM D8073

The WSI was developed in conjunction with industry stakeholders and an ASTM method is being developed by the water separation task group fuel cleanliness sub-committee D02.J0.05. The water coalescing property of filter materials is reduced by surfactants which inhibit the ability of the filter to remove water droplets from the fuel- i.e. wet fuel passing through the filter. The WSI is designed to predict
filter coalescer failure. The instrument is fully automatic with simple touch screen operation. The WSI features a patented Sonic Mixing Technology which eliminates any variables with water droplet size and
ensures the same amount of energy is applied to each sample.
Filter cartridges use API/EI 1581 5th edition filter material which is less sensitive to weak surfactants and eliminates uncertainty over static disippator additives, but is responsive to the presence of ester based additives.
