Removes Water and Dirt from Jet Fuel and Avgas Outside-to-In Flow Cartridges
Patented (US Patent no. 4,242,206)
Filter Cartridges have a unique high-capacity inner filter media which removes all free and emulsified water from hydrocarbon fuels down to less than 5 ppm in the effluent. Absorbed water is chemically locked into this media.
When a cartridge reaches its water holding capacity, its accordion pleats swell and cause an increase in the differential pressure which signals the operator to change the cartridge.
Solid contaminants are removed by the cartridge’s two particulate filter media layers. The pleated accordion style design provides a large surface area for maximum dir t holding capacity. Models are offered for particulate filtration down to 1/2 micrometer size with 98% plus efficiency. Performance is not affected by the presence of common surface active agents.
Cartridges are quick and easy to install. Models are available to fit most existing standard housings.
Free and emulsified water to less than 5 ppm
1/2 micrometer particulate removal
Provides protection against “slugs” of water
Pressure increase signals cartridge change
Use with existing filter housings
1/2 micron rated
Cartridges are recommended for use with jet fuel and avgas. Effluent quality meets requirements for IP-1583.
Do not use with pre-mixed fuels containing ANTI-ICING ADDITIVES.
Use form for cartridge changeout at flowrates less than rated flow.
Maximum Flow Rate
Max. Operating Temperature
Fits VF-31E Housing
Maximum operating temperature is 160ºF.
Micron ratings are nominal at 98%+ efficiency.
Cartridges can significantly reduce flow when loaded with water or dirt. Appropriate precautions should be taken in applications where fuel flow must be maintained or where surge conditions can occur.
Replace the cartridge if the differential pressure exceeds 25 psid. For service life information, please refer to Operating Procedure or consult your company fuel handling procedures.
