No matter how carefully gasoline or diesel is handled, contamination in the form of dirt, sludge or water will always find its way into your fuel tank. With modern engines now injecting fuel at over 36,000 psi (2,500 bar) and injector tolerances measured in microns, even a small amount of dirt or water corrosion can cause damaged components, reduced engine efficiency, and in severe cases, complete injector break-down.
Racor Spin-on Series Fuel Filter Water Separators provide maximum protection of modern diesel and gasoline engines by effectively removing contaminants from fuel, such as water, silica, sand, dirt, and rust. The mounting head and filter body are protected with a durable electrostatically-applied powder coating for superior corrosion resistance. The unique spin-on filter design is easy to service and features a reusable clear plastic or metal contaminant collection bowl with a self-venting drain or metal plug.
An integral priming pump is available as an option for diesel filter models; but they are not recommended for gasoline models. The pump allows for easy priming and simplified service by eliminating messy filter pre-filling and engine hard starting. Diesel models are also available with optional fuel heaters to ensure performance in extremely cold environments.
All Spin-on Series Fuel Filter Water Separators utilize Racor’s high-efficiency Aquabloc® engineered media, which repels water and removes solid contaminants from fuel at 98% efficiency of their micron rating.
