Turbine series filter assemblies are designed to be installed on the vacuum side of the fuel transfer pump for best efficiency and protect precision engine components from dirt, rust, algae, asphaltites, varnishes, and especially water. They remove contaminates from fuel using the following three stage process:
Stage one: Separation as fuel enters the filter assembly, it moves through the centrifuge and spins off large solids & water droplets which fall to the bottom of the bowl.
Stage Two: Coalescing small water droplets bead-up on the surface of the conical baffle and cartridge element. When heavy enough, they fall to the bottom of bowl.
Stage Three: Filtration proprietary Aquabloc® II cartridge elements repel water and remove contaminants from fuel down to two micron (nominal). They are waterproof and effective longer then water absorbing elements.
Easy to service, rated for 25 psi max pressure, and feature a self-venting water drain. MA models are UL Listed and Coast Guard approved for use on boats for hire and commercial applications and use a metal bowl.
