Extended Description

In order to complement our research capability in keeping with the aviation fuel aviation characterisation requirements, we are looking to procure an Automated Water Solubility Test Device for precise and reliable aviation fuel testing in agreement with ASTM D6304.

This test method covers the direct determination of entrained water in petroleum products and hydrocarbons using automated instrumentation. This test method also covers the indirect analysis of water thermally removed from samples and swept with dry inert gas into the titration cell. The precision statement of this method covers the nominal range of 20 mg ⁄kg to 25 000 mg/kg.
