PETRO | Filter Element - Water

  • Are your bulk fluids passing large amounts of free water downstream – contaminating vehicles and equipment?
  • PETRO’s water absorbing filter with super absorbent polymer media, DBB0248, will stop flow if large amounts of free water are detected in your ethanol-free fluids.
  • Designing systems with water absorbing filters requires careful sizing considerations.
  • A specialist will assist in configuring a system that meets your specific needs for flow and pressure drop.


  • PETRO’s DBB0248 free water detection filter has been constructed with super absorbent media to remove water efficiently at high flow rates blocking the passage of free water in ethanol free fluids.
  • PETRO spin-on elements enable fast, simple and clean servicing, without the requirement of specialised tooling, lifting devices or elevated work platforms. The filter media has greater protection from environmental contamination during service and installation than common cartridge style elements, further enhancing PETRO’s high initial efficiency.
  • Contaminant loaded media is disposed of with the replaceable can, eliminating the need for manual cleaning of fixed infrastructure or direct handling of concentrated contaminants.
  • The DBB0248 spin-on elements can be configured for high flow rates with minimal pressure drop.
