- A 10 micron element from the 120A and 140R series. The Racor Spin-On Series is the available in a wide range of size and flow rate capabilities, using engineered media incorporated into graduated pore structure to increase the dirt holding capacity and extend filter life. The Racor Spin-On Series is the available in a wide range of size and flow rate capabilities, using engineered media incorporated into 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 Spin on Series has standard primer pumps that tops the list of extensive options that allows bus fleets, truck fleets, RV owners and others to tailor a fuel filter water separator system specifically to their operating requirements These options include a choice of three micron ratings for the Aquabloc filter element, 300 watt in head PTC (positive temperature coefficient heater) water sensor and flow rates up to 600 l/hr (160 US gph).
Fuel Contamination, either in the form of dirt or water will find its way into your fuel system however careful you are. With modern engines now injecting fuel at anything up to 2000 bar, and injector tolerances being measured in microns, it is hardly surprising that even a small amount of dirt or water corrosion can start a problem. Water or particulate can cause microscopic surface damage which is then focused on by the high pressure flow, to cause significant wear which will eventually lead to reduced efficiency and complete break-down. Racor offer what is widely accepted as the industry bench mark premium product, leading global engine manufacturers recommend Racor to protect their engines, why risk anything less.
At the heart of the filter is the filter paper or media, which is constructed from a special blend of mixed fiber sizes, to achieve the highest possible efficiency whilst maximizing capacity and life. The media is impregnated with special resins to ensure durability and separation performance. Product is built in an ISO TS 16949 quality system environment to ISO 14001 Environmental requirements.
The Parker global support and distribution network ensures that you can find our product where ever you are in the world.
Unlike unauthorised copies Racor Spin on Filters comprise of only the best quality components:
Pump Diaphragm: Racor use high quality support laminated high grade rubber fit for life diaphragms. Poor quality pump diaphragms will swell in the fuel, and leak in cold conditions, and eventually wear out under even mild Pressure pulsation/vibration
Seal Materials: Crucial in a modern fuel filter, Racor use high quality automotive grade materials in all seals and valves. Poor quality seals will swell excessively in the fuel, and leak in cold conditions
Filter Media: The true heart of the filter- Racor develop proprietary semi synthetic Aquabloc media to meet the exacting specifications of injection system OEMs. These meet critical water removal and particle efficiency requirements. Copy cats regularly save cost on low quality media which do not perform, and block up to 70% sooner.
Accessories: Racor have a wide range of heater and sensor accessories all validated for integrity, EMC Compatibility and safety.
Head casting: Racor validate castings under extreme vibration and climatic conditions to meet chassis and engine specifications.
Filter Canister Components: Racor validate canisters under extreme vibration and climatic conditions to meet chassis and engine specifications.
Coatings and plating: Racor validate canisters under extreme salt spray and climatic conditions to meet OEM specifications and environmental requirements and are free from banned substances.
Clear Bowl: Racor use a unique and durable clear plastic bowl material with high clarity, excellent UV, Low temp/high temp resistance, impact resistant and impervious to all fuel types. Racor bowls are validated under extreme vibration and climatic conditions to meet strict OEM specifications. Copies often use more economical materials.
Racor Spin-On Series Elements:
Racor elements are available in different lengths for various flow rates and colour 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.
Racor Spin on Series of fuel filter water separators can be utilised in the following applications:-
On and off Highway applications including:
o Truck and Bus
