Water in Fuel Tank Sensor

05/13/2009 1:48 PM

Good day,

I have a request from a customer to put a machinery alarm point for "FUEL TANK WATER SENSOR". The fuel is commercial grade diesel. I can work with any output as this would be a PLC programmed system.

Best Regards,

Andre

I was going to give you a hard time, but these are actually hard to look up

Consumer version is called a WIF or water in fuel sensor

Industrial is called a "Level Sensor" measures / detects a level of interface between two layers

Here is a link to our host's catalog selections

If it didn't have to go in the bottom of the fuel filter I'd use the consumer version

$25 at every auto store
