Dirt and water are practically unavoidable in stored fuel. Their presence often leads to the formation of bacteria, corrosive acids, and rust, which can cause plugged filters, damaged components, decreased combustion efficiency, and, in severe cases, system failure.
The Racor Filter Funnel (RFF) Series is a line of heavy-duty, high-flow funnels that help protect engines by removing free water and contaminants that are often present in stored gasoline, diesel, heating oil, and kerosene. They feature a built-in DuPont Teflon®-coated stainless steel screen mesh filter, which utilizes surface tension to stop water, while allowing fuel to pass through the funnel and into the engine.
RFF Series funnels are capable of removing free water and solids down to 50 micron in size and allow users to visually inspect the cleanliness of their fuel supply during refueling. They are ideal for fueling lawnmowers, ATVs, chainsaws, snow machines, power generators, boats, recreational vehicles, motorhomes, motorcycles or any other type of engine that requires clean, dry fuel on the go.
How it works:
When properly used, the Racor Filter Funnel will separate free water from hydrocarbon fuels. As fuel is being filtered, heavier free water and contaminates (rust and grime) are stopped and collected on the bottom of the funnel. When you have a substantial amount of water (approximately 1 cup/250 ml), dispose of it properly and resume refueling.
