Sensor Detects Fuel In Oil In Real Time

Suitable for detection chores involving virtually all types of lubricating oils, the VSI Fuel Detection Sensor [VSI-FDS] detects fuel (petroleum-based) contamination in crankcase oils and other machinery. The patented sensing system detects the presence of fuel in oil at a user defined, predetermined level in real time, equivalent to ASTM D3524. The sensor detects fuel levels from 0.02% to 10% of the volume of the oil and affords the user immediate feedback on the condition of their oil.
