At the invitation of Italian partners our laboratory conducted field tests. Muddy water- emulsion that consisted of 57% of diesel and 43% of moisture was presented for work.

After the separation at the test unit two fractions were obtained:

  • Refined diesel visually conforming to a sample of the standard commercial diesel . Laboratory analysis showed that moisture content in the was less than 1%. Method of the analysis that is used at the host enterprise can detect moisture only when its content in the is more than 1%. Thus, moisture was not detected.

  • Separated water.
