For maximum water removal, Solids holding capacity and shutdown protection to assure clean, Dry fuel.
The Facet Fuel-Gard monitor cartridge performs three jobs to assure clean, dry fuel. It absorbs free and emulsified water to less than 2 ppm, removes ultra fine solids even when surfactants and fuel additives are present and shuts down system flow when hit with a localized slug of water. It is designed to flow from the outside to inside at a rate of 1 gallon (3.79 liters) per lineal inch with 2 micron nominal filtration.
Fuel-Gard monitors meet the latest edition of the Institute of Petroleum (I.P.) Specifications and Qualification Procedures - Aviation Fuel Filter Monitors With Absorbent Type Elements.
Fuel-Gard monitors let you know when they need to be replaced. The presence of water or solids in the incoming fuel will be indicated by an increase in the pressure differential or a decrease in the flow rate as the monitor reaches its maximum capacity for solids, water or a combination of both.
Each monitor cartridge is constructed of various water absorbent media, plus fine filtration layers, wrapped around a molded center tube for balanced flow and structural strength - all encased in a protective outer sock.
The end cap material is of injection molded, glass filled nylon which provides superior strength and ease of maintenance. This material gives excellent support for the o-ring on the mounting/adaptor end.
