The SNAPP™ Series is a compact, disposable fuel filter water separator with premium filtration capabilities. Unlike conventional small engine filters, which use a spin-on element that requires a strap wrench to service, the SNAPP™ filter features a patented bracket system and quick-connect fittings that eliminate the need for seals or threads. This allows change-outs to be performed quickly, easily, and without the use of tools. The filter only requires 2-1/2 inches front clearance for servicing, making it suitable for installation wherever you need it.
The SNAPP™ filter housing’s one-piece, high-impact nylon structure is coupled with a powder-coated or stainless steel (for marine use) mounting bracket to resist corrosion in all environments. The clear collection bowl allows for accurate inspection of fuel quality. A self-vent drain is also available for easy removal of collected water.
At the heart of the SNAPP™ fuel filter is Racor’s proprietary Aquabloc® technology. Aquabloc® is a unique engineered media that incorporates pleat-spacing corrugations and a graduated pore structure to increase dirt-holding capacity and extend filter life. The media is waterproof and rustproof, capturing contaminants while the specially treated surface separates and coalesces water from the fuel; causing the water to gather into large droplets that then fall into the clear collection bowl.
