OPERATING PROCEDURES (Continued)
Report the results to the nearest whole number as ppm by volume of undissolved water in fuel, and also the sample
volume used in the test. Report the temperature of the sample, if available.
Equipment cleaning and stowage
(1) Fill solvent dispenser bottle (19) from ether storage bottle (21). Disassemble the monitor housing assembly (23)
and flush with ether. Wipe all components with a clean rag or paper towel. Pour any unused ether into ether
storage bottle (21). Stow each item in the fuel contamination test kit.
(2) Verify the power selector on the water detector (8) is in the OFF position.
(3) Remove the instrument pack (7) from the water detector (8) and stow both items in the fuel contamination test
(4) Secure the fuel contamination test kit for transport.
13. Perform particulate contamination fuel test.
components are present during filtration since they concentrate and develop voltage sufficient to
cause static discharge within the test apparatus. This procedure requires that all metal parts and the
receiver must be electrically bonded together. The fuel test apparatus and receiver must be
grounded to a known ground. Death or personal injury may result from improperly grounded or
Place the fuel contamination test kit in the vicinity of the filtration module.
Attach the flexible extension tube (figure 7, 5) to the monitor housing assembly (23).
Verify the three position lever (figure 9, 1) on the monitor housing (2) is in the STOP position.
Separate the monitor housing (2).
To avoid extraneous contamination, monitor protective plugs must be removed only for
sampling and replaced immediately. The monitor must be opened in a laboratory.
Select a monitor (figure 7, 20). Use a contamination monitor (figure 9, 3) (blue and red protective plugs) for color
comparator testing or a matched-weight monitor (yellow and red protective plugs) for gravimetric testing.
Remove the bottom protective plug (4) (outlet) from the monitor (3) and place it in a clean, safe place.
Position the monitor (3) in the monitor housing (2).
Remove the other protective plug (5) (inlet), from the monitor (3) and place it in a clean, safe place.
Reassemble the monitor housing (2) hand tight only. Extreme force is both unnecessary and undesirable.
