Racor Offers Literature On High-Performance Fuel Filter/Water Separator

Racor Industries of Modesto, Calif., has introduced a new highperformance fuel filter / water separator that can be installed as standard equipment, yet accommodates a wide variety of engine applications and customer preferences.

Literature is available describing the separator.

The new Racor 220 Series is available for pressure or vacuum side mounting on diesel engines with flow rates up to 30 gallons per hour. The first of a series of multi-application "world" fuel filter water separators from Racor, the 220 has a die-cast aluminum head designed to fit virtually any mounting location in marine and other diesel engine applications. The 220's design accommodates three different replacement filter elements to suit specific user requirements.

The high-capacity filter element for vacuum side applications has both a water drain and separation filtration process to remove harmful water and solid contaminants. Also for vacuum side engine applications, the dualmedia filter element features a separation, coalescing, and dual stage filtration process for ultrafine diesel filtration and water separation. The third replacement filter, a coalescer element, effectively removes over 99 percent of free and emulsified water plus rust particles, dirt and other solid contaminants down to two microns in size. It is designed to be mounted on the pressure side of the fuel transfer pump.
