Fuel / Diesel water and solid removal housings

We have a wide range of small housings perfect for removing water and solid particulate from your diesels and fuels.

We have outlined of some of our available products below;

 

VF-31E
The VF-31E is a versatile filter housing designed for use with several different high performance Aquacon filter cartridges.

Cartridges are offered for the optimum filtration of aviation fuel, gasoline, diesel fuel, oils, compressed air, and other gasses.

Aquacon filters eliminate water contamination problems by removing water from fuels, oils, and gasses. Filtered water is chemically locked into the cartridge’s inner super-absorbent media.

As a cartridge reaches its water holding limit, the media expands very rapidly and restricts the flow of unfiltered material. This causes an increase in the differential pressure which signals the operator to replace the cartridge. When filtering fuels or compressed air, a saturated Aquacon cartridge will completely block the flow until it is replaced.

Aquacon Cartridges are also excellent dirt filters. Silt, rust, and other particulates are removed by the cartridge’s outer filter media. One-half, five, and 25 micron rated cartridges are available for use with fuels and oils.

The ACA-210 cartridge, for use with compressed air and other gasses, has a 1 micron rating.

 

VF-609

The VF-609 can be fitted with either a high efficiency coalescer element or an absorption element that removes dissolved water down to 50ppm.

It is a versatile housing designed for use with several different high performance cartridges.

One of its important features is that water removal efficiency is not affected by surfactants or additives and, furthermore, water cannot be squeezed out.

The VF-609 is also designed to effectively filter out dirt, rust and other particulates

 

VF-61, VF-61E, VF-62

The VF-61, and VF-62 are versatile filter housings designed for use with several different high performance Aquacon filter cartridges, as well as a variety of paper filters and coalescer/separator cartridges. 

Aquacon cartridges filter out water by chemically locking it into layers of super-absorbent media. Water removal efficiency is not affected by common surfactants or additives. Water capacity is as much as 11/2 quarts, depending on the flow rate. These cartridges also effectively filter out dirt, rust and other particulates. 

As a cartridge reaches its water-holding limit, the media expands very rapidly and restricts the flow. For oils and other high viscosity liquids, the pressure drop will rapidly increase, signaling the need to change cartridges. 

The VF-61, with ACO series cartridges installed, has become the standard for low flow rate full flow aviation fuel monitor applications. 

The VF-61E can also be used with band clamp closure for areas with limited space. 

 

VF-71E

The VF71E is a perfect housing for a variety of applications, given its ability to take several cartridges.

It is able to remove water and dirt, acid and solids depending on the cartridge fitted.

No tools are required for changeout making it simple to use.
