Scope

1.1 This test method covers a rapid portable means for field and laboratory use to rate the ability of diesel fuels (both neat and those containing additives) to release entrained or emulsified water when passed through fiberglass coalescing material.

1.2 This test method is applicable to diesel fuels such as Specification D975 Grade No. 1-D and Grade No. 2-D of all sulfur levels, Specification D7467 biodiesel blends B6-B20, and MIL-DTL-16884, naval distillate fuel (NATO F-76).

Note 1: This test method is similar to Test Method D3948 which is applicable to aviation turbine fuels.
