Water Detection Probes
Stainless Steel Water In Fuel (WIF) Probe The new all-steel and ceramic water in fuel (WIF) probe was designed to meet new
IMO Marine Requirements. Racor’s new RK23191 water probe can be used with all of our American Bureau of Shipping (ABS) and Underwriters Laboratories- Inc. (UL)
Marine products. This passive probe design has a 303 stainless steel housing which captivates a ceramic insulator and stainless probe tip. The housing features a durable
plastic connector housing to attach to an external pigtail harness with yellow and black 18 AWG wires (no polarity).
Racor offers a wide selection of water-in-fuel (WIF) detection systems- each designed for specific
filter assemblies and installation requirements. Water probes simply provide metal pin tip entry into a water collection
bowl. Some contain no active electronics and require an external electronic detection module to detect water.
Electronic Detection Modules
Detection modules have internal electronics that pass a small current across special metal pins. When water
bridges the pin tips- a solid state switch is activated allowing a larger current to flow to drive a light or provide a signal
to an engine computer. Electronic detection modules will automatically reset once water is drained away from
the probe tips.
