The desert engineering test of the Effluent Fuel Tester, Totamitor, (EFTT) 50 and 400 gallons per minute rated capacities, was conducted by and at Yuma Proving Ground. The purpose of the test was to determine the ability of the EFTT's to meet the approved military characteristics in the desert environment. It was recommended the test items, after redesign, and the maintenance package, after updating, be resubmitted for test.
An evaluation was made of the coalescence performance of new and used DOD field elements. Tests were made in a laboratory coalescer cell and in a single-element test stand. Dry red-oxide filtration tests were also made with new DOD elements. Good correlations were obtained between laboratory and single-elements test stand evaluations. (Author)
