Portable Vessels Data Sheet

 

Velcon has received the following approvals for its products:

  • Navy MIL-PRF-32148
  • Army MIL-PRF-52308J
  • Army MIL-F-8901E
  • EI 1581 5th Edition, M100 & M Categories

For refuellers that had previously used 4” diameter DOD coalescers, Velcon has developed and qualified cartridges to meet the new EI 1581 5th Edition Specification.

This specification provides for two military categories - Category M for JP8 fuels, and Category M100 for JP8 fuels with thermal stability additive (Spec Aid 8Q462). Velcon has qualified:
• Category M - Models I-420MM & I- 440MM, as direct replacements for DOD-sized cartridges, and

• Category M100 Models I-420A4 & I- 44A4 are directly interchangeable with DOD-sized cartridges.

For refuellers with vessels containing 6” diameter coalescer cartridges, Velcon has developed and qualified coalescers to meet EI 1581 5th Edition, Category M - Model I-6xxMM, where “xx” represents the length of the cartridge. These coalescers can be supplied with threaded base mounting ends or with conventional flat caps.
