ASTM WK45832

    New Test Method for Determination of water separation characteristics of Aviation Turbine Fuel by Small Scale Water Separation Tester

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: D02.J0.05 | Committee D02 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    1.1 This method covers a procedure to rate the ability of aviation turbine fuels to release entrained and emulsified water when passed through a water coalescing filter. 1.2 Results are expressed as a Water Separation Index (WSI). Note 1Specifications falling within the scope of this test method are ASTM Specifications D1655 and D7566. 1.3 All stated values are in SI units.

    This is a new standard for assessing the ability of aviation fuel to release water during storage aand filtration which could be included in specifications for Aviation Fuel e.g ASTM D1655


    Water Seperation Index: Aviation Fuel

    The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
