Removes Water and Dirt from Jet Fuel and Avgas Outside-to-In Flow Cartridges
Patented (US Patent no. 4,242,206) Aquacon 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.
Compact Aquacon 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 Aquacon Cartridges are recommended for use with jet fuel and avgas. Effluent quality meets requirements for IP-1583 6th Edition.
Caution Do not use with pre-mixed fuels containing anti-icing additives.
Use form for cartridge changeout at flowrates less than rated flow.
