VFAP814150

EI1596 and EI1541 Qualified Vertical Filter Vessels

VFAP Series

VFAP Vertical Filter Vessels Data Sheet - See Catalog VEL2178

VFAP Series Aviation Filter Vessels differ from standard filter vessels. EI 1596 design requirements for jet fuel include: sloped deck plates, cartridge spacing, and spider plates. Consult our Micronic Filters for Aviation Fuel Handling catalog (VEL2159) to select the appropriate EI1590 cartridge for your application.

Filter vessels VFAP814 through VFAP844, such as the VFAP814150 shown at right, have throughbolt covers, NPT connections, and include fittings for drain, pressure gauge and air vent.

VFAP1614 and larger vessels, such as the VFAP2044150 shown at far right, are provided with swing bolt closure, RF flange connections and fittings for pressure gauge, air eliminator, pressure relief valve and drain valve.

  1. Flow rates are for pleated paper cartridges. For higher viscosity fluids, consult your Parker AFD Representative
  2. VFAP Series Filters are designed to accommodate our standard 6 in. O.D., 3 ½ in. I.D., 14 ½ in. long cartridges that are stacked one, two, or three high. Many cartridges are available in longer lengths that eliminate stacking. For example, a 44 inch long FO-644PLF1M could be used in place of three 14 ½ inch long cartridges. This makes for easier and less expensive changeouts
  3. A number of threaded base filter cartridges (e.g. FO-644PLF5TB) are available, which allow for easier cartridge changeout and removal of particulate matter from the deckplates. The threaded base cartridges mount on the 6000T Adapters.
  4. Dimensions shown are for estimating purposes only. For exact dimensions, obtain certified drawing
  5. VFAP16 and VFAP20 Series vessels have flat covers. VFAP16 Series vessels do not have hydraulic lift jacks
