VELCON 1" VF31E Aviation Filter Housing and Element

These filter housings are versatile housings designed for use with several different high performance Aquacon® and other filter cartridges. Refer to the cartridge selection table below for application and other details.

Aquacon® cartridges filter out water by chemically locking it into layers of super-absorbent media. Water capacity is as much as 1.5 quarts, depending on the specific vessel and cartridge. These cartridges also effectively filter out dirt, rust and other particulates.

As an Aquacon® cartridge reaches its water-holding limit, the media expands very rapidly and restricts the flow. The pressure drop will rapidly increase, signaling the need to change cartridges.

FEATURES:

  • Designed for use with Jet A1 and Avgas Aviation Fuels.
  • Free and emulsified water to less than 5 ppm.
  • 1/2 micron particulate removal.
  • Provides protection against “slugs” of water.
  • Pressure increase signals cartridge change.
  • 1” NPT Threaded Female.
  • Up to 60lpm flow rate.
