Dieselcraft Fluid Engineering has developed a line of sensors to detect water at the bottom of a fuel tank before the fuel is dispensed. Sensors also can be installed in water separators to alarm the user of water presence. Dieselcraft Model 06-5 and 06-6SP are a solid-state sending unit and a self-grounding stainless steel probe, respectively. The 06-5 is designed to detect water in diesel fuel and gasoline but also will detect water in less conductive fluids. The 06-6SP is supplied with an additional output lead with a programmable control line that sends an alarm to shut down the equipment. The electronic enclosure houses green and red LED lights and an audible alarm that sounds when water is detected. A hand-held water detector is also available.
