K33850 Existent Gum Steam Generator


Test Method
Gum formed during fuel storage can deposit on induction system surfaces, intake valves, stems and guides. To test for gum content, a 50mL sample is evaporated in an aluminum block bath for a specified period under controlled conditions of temperature and flow of air (aviation and motor gasolines) or steam (aircraft turbine fuel).

Features and Benefits
• For steam-jet method testing of aircraft turbine fuels

• Meets output requirements of three-unit and six-unit evaporation baths

• Electrically heated for clean, efficient operation and ease of installation

• Meets applicable ASME, NEC standards; UL listed, CSA approved


K33850 Existent Gum Steam Generator
Electrically heated boiler provides instantaneous and reserve steam capacity for steam-jet evaporation tests.
