KF1 - Replacement Element, 7 µm
Particulate & Coalescing for 160 gphManual Drain Housing Coalescing1 filtration can be a highly effective method to remove water from diesel fuels. Water is typically introduced into the fuel supply by condensation or water ingression during delivery or transfer. Water in a vehicle’s fuel system can reduce lubricity causing seizure of close tolerance parts, increased TAN, reduced lubricity at the injector, lower burn efficiency, reduced power or emissions violations and corrosion. Water in fuel storage tanks causes rust and promotes microbial growth. Microbial growth in fuel storage systems begins in free water at the tank bottom and can quickly migrate through the fuel. In warm weather, microbial “blooms” can quickly overwhelm and bypass fuel filters causing contamination to reach the fuel injectors. Today's high pressure 36,000+ psi (2,800bar) common-rail, Tier 4 fuel injection systems have tighter tolerances and require water removal, less than 200 ppm to minimize wear related failures.
