FEATURES

These filter housings are versatile housings designed for use with several different high performance Aquacon® and other filter cartridges. Refer to the cartridge selection table below for application and other details.

Aquacon® cartridges filter out water by chemically locking it into layers of super-absorbent media. Water capacity is as much as 1.5 quarts, depending on the specific vessel and cartridge. These cartridges also effectively filter out dirt, rust and other particulates. (See caution below)

As an Aquacon® cartridge reaches its water-holding limit, the media expands very rapidly and restricts the flow. The pressure drop will rapidly increase, signaling the need to change cartridges.

The VF-61, with Aquacon® ACO series cartridges installed, has become the standard for low flow rate full flow aviation fuel monitor applications.

(1) For aviation and diesel fuel applications, always install a differential pressure gauge or other means of determing differential pressure.
(2) See Data Sheet #1709 for absorbent cartridge (AC, AD) flow rates.
(3) See Data Sheet # 1532 for paper filter (FO) flow rates, see Data Sheet #1747 for synthetic filter (FOS) flow rates.
(4) For Aviation Fuels, if system pressure can exceed 25 psi, and for Diesel Fuel Systems, always install pressure gauge or other means of determining differential pressure.
(5) For Full Flow Fuel Monitor applications, the flow rate can be increased to 100 USGPM. This will result in a somewhat reduced cartridge life and higher initial pressure drop. In jet fuel with an ACO-52401P installed, the initial pressure drop is 6 psi at 50 USGPM, 10 psi at 75 USGPM.
