Aquacon® Cartridge - AD Series

AD Series cartridges were developed in cooperation with a major oil company for diesel fuel applications.

Balancing effective water and dirt removal with economical life, AD cartridges have become standard for most diesel users and can also be used with biodiesel.

The AD design also significantly restricts flow when a water slug is introduced.

Applications which can benefit from the AD series cartridges include motor gasoline, hydraulic and lube oils, diesel fuel, biodiesel blends and FAME.


Please contact us for more information on the AD Series cartridges and how they can benefit your application.
