Small Filter Housings
VF-61, VF-61E, VF-62
Clean Dry Fuels with High Performance Aquacon®
- Free and emulsified water to less than 5 ppm
- 1/2 micrometer particulate removal
- Provides protection against “slugs” of water
- Pressure increase signals cartridge change
- Use with existing filter housings
- Jet Fuel
The VF-61, VF-61E, 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 1-½ quarts, depending on the flow rate. These cartridges also effectively filter out dirt, rust and other particulates.(See caution)
As a cartridge reaches its waterholding 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.
Use the VF-61E with band clamp closure for areas with limited space.NOTE:
For non-EI qualified applications. Housing does not meet EI1596 or EI1581 qualifications.
OVER PRESSURE PROTECTION
When exposed to a high concentration of water, the differential pressure across an absorbent cartridge (AC, ACO, AD, or ASL Series cartridges) will immediately increase. Pressure bypasses or other means to limit the inlet pressure to 75 psi (5 bar) should be installed to prevent cartridge from collapsing.
