Aviation fuel, including jet fuel and avgas, needs to be extremely clean and dry as it is being loaded onto the aircraft. Depending on the flow rate, fuel type, and location in the fuel distribution system, you will need different filter cartridges. The closer the fuel is to being delivered to the aircraft, the cleaner and drier it must be. Velcon Filters is a reliable source of filter cartridges and filtration and separation vessels that provide high quality filtration for the fuel before and during the pumping of the fuel into the aircraft.
Velcon Filters manufactures hundreds of different fuel filter and oil filter cartridges, with a range of filtration efficiencies (micron ratings) in a variety of configurations, to meet specific industry filtration requirements. Filter cartridges qualified to military specifications are also offered.
Included is the industry’s most complete line of jet fuel filter cartridge sets qualified to test to the latest EI 1581 for use in Filter/Separators. CDF® monitor cartridges are qualified to the latest EI 1583 Monitor specifications. Also available are a line of filter cartridges qualified to EI 1590 Specification for prefilters.
Other cartridges are offered for the removal of granular and colloidal contaminants as well as surfactants. These cartridges provide optimum filtration performance when used in either Velcon filter vessels or in housings made by Quantek/Facet, Fram, Bendix, Bowser/Keene/Kaydon, Purolator, and numerous others.
