Vecom Tube-Water Find Paste - 70 grams

PPE, Tools, Consumables

Vecom Water Finder Special Paste Vecom Genuine Water Finder Special Paste

For testing for the presence of water at the bottom of fuel storage tanks Suitable only for use with Petrol, Diesel, Kerosene, Gas Oil, Heating Oil, Heavy Oil, and Lubricating Oil

Applied to a rod / length of string with bottom weight, the pink paste changes colour to red where it comes into contact with water, giving you a visual indication as to the depth of the water present. The water can then be pumped out, and the test repeated until there is insufficient water to pump, at which point one of our Water-Soakers or Oilybits Water Absorbing Polymer can be used to absorb the last of it

To remove the bulk of the water we would first recommend pumping the water out with a simple self-priming waste oil/water pump, such as our Drill Powered, Flexible Impeller Pump, or Mains Powered Flexible Impeller Pump, and a length of Hose before using the absorbtion media as described above

In both the Energy Institute’s HM-28 page 26 5.1.9.1 and the IFIA Bulletin, both recommend that ‘two’ different water finding pastes are ‘initially’ used, so you may wish to select another water finding paste to use in conjunction with this paste, from our selection HERE

No expiry date, will keep best when stored between 31F and 115F
