This is very similar in appearance to the Shell Water Detector and uses a syringe and capsule. A 5ml sample is sucked through the detector head into the syringe. An initial indication occurs at about 10ppm when the capsule turns from a pale yellow to a pale green colour. The colour deepens to a dark green-blue, indicating a water content of 30ppm.

The problem of water contamination in petroleum is widely prevalent during its manufacture, transport or storage. Intentionally or unintentionally, water may find its way into the petroleum reservoir and the direct height of the petroleum surface then is not the true measure of the amount of the product in the reservoir. The AQUADIS Water Finding Paste serves well the purpose of a water sensitive colour indicator on the dipping gadget to measure or detect the presence of water in the petroleum.
