Fuel Water Separators
Engine filtration can be overwhelmed by large amounts of water or other contaminants. Water in emulsified form or free water is always present in fuel. Water is an eroding agent while fuel is a lubricant. Water removal from fuel has become very important and proper water separation of emulsified as well as free water is crucial for economic performance of any diesel engine.
Fleetguard's three stage fuel filter provides excellent water removal over the life of the filter. Use of patented StrataPoreTM media while combining/bonding together different micron rating filters can have this effect. For example, if the original equipment filter is of 10 microns, then placing a 25-micron StrataPore™ media filter upstream can as much as triple the service life.
