Parker Hannifin’s Racor Division offers a wide selection of water-in-fuel Electronic Water Sensors that detect water in fuel at the sensor tips, then send a signal to a detection module that alerts the operator by a light or buzzer.

On some applications, WIF sensors are connected directly to engine computers and do not require a detection module. The electronic detection modules are designed to reset automatically once water is drained away from the sensor tips.
