The Racor Turbine Series 500FG30 is the most trusted fuel filtration water separator available in the market and the Parker global support and distribution network ensures that you can find our product where ever you are in the world.
The design and manufacturing team at Racor developed a unique engineered media that incorporates a graduated pore structure to increase the dirt holding capacity and extend filter life.
The waterproof, rustproof and dirt proof Aquabloc media undergoes a water repelling treatment process that simultaneously separates and coalesces, forming heavy water droplets that collect into the filter bowl.
The Racor Turbine series 500FG30 has a wide range of flow rates starting from 60 gph on a single 500FG Series up to 540 gph on 1000FH series installed in the triplex formation.
Duplex and Triplex Turbine units offers safety by having a clean filter in reserve. With Racor Turbine Series 500FG30, a simple turn of a valve puts a clean filter back on-line. Servicing of the clogged filter can then be performed even with the engine running.
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, asphaltines, varnishes, and especially water which is prevalent in engine fuels. They remove contaminates from fuel using the following legendary three stage process.
Stage One: Water Separation: As fuel enters the filter assembly, it moves through the centrifuge and spins off large solids and water droplets which fall to the bottom of the collection bowl.
Stage Two: Coalescing: Small water droplets bead-up on the surface of the conical baffle and cartridge element. When heavy enough, they too fall to the bottom of the 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.
Racor Turbine Series 500FG30 Elements:
Racor 500FG30 elements are available in different lengths for various flow rates and color coded 2, 10 and 30 micron. The lower the micron rating the finer the filtration. Lower micron ratings should be considered when there is no additional downstream filtration. Ultimately, the micron rating preferred will be a function of fuel quality, operating climates and maintenance schedules.
Contamination either as particulate or water can cause considerable system damage such as:
Water enter the system through condensation in the fuel tank
Any water present will cause components to rust and ferrous material will then be apparent in the system causing erosion of valuable parts.
Utilizing a Racor fuel filter prevents costly injector damage by the elimination of water and contaminants present in the fuel
Engine components are protected when a fuel filter water separator is installed
Any additional contaminants of free water will reduce the fuel efficiency and engine performance
Not installing a Racor fuel filter water separator can lead to engine failure especially when you cannot be sure that the fuel is clean and dry
Save time and money by eliminating unplanned maintenance and unscheduled downtime from system component failure by protecting your engine with a reliable Racor fuel filter water separator.
