Maximum water removal, solids holding capacity and shutdown protection assures clean, dry fuel

The Facet 2" (51 mm.) nominal outside diameter FG Series Fuel-Gard monitor cartridges perform three jobs - they absorb free and emulsified water to less than 5 ppm; remove ultra-fine solids even when surfactants and fuel additives are present; and shut down system flow when hit with a localized slug of water, giving you clean, dry fuel. The FG Series Fuel- Gard monitor cartridges are designed to flow from the outside to inside at a rate of 1 gallon (3.79 liters) per inch of length.

Fuel-Gard monitor cartridges meet the 4th edition of IP 1583 Specifications and Qualification Procedures - Aviation Fuel Filter Monitors With Absorbent Type Elements including the following optional tests:

  • 50 PPMV Water Test Short Element
  • 50 PPMV Sea Water Test
  • Tested using JP-8 Jet Fuel (Military) Static
    Dissipator, Corrosion Inhibitor, Petronate L and FSII Anti-Icing Agent Diegme, MIL-PRF-81380D

    The presence of water or solids in the incoming fuel will be indicated by an increase in the pressure differential or a decrease in the flow rate as the cartridges reach their maximum capacity for solids, water or a combination of both. When either happens, the cartridges should be replaced.

    Each FG Series Fuel-Gard monitor cartridge is constructed of various water absorbent media, plus fine filtration layers wrapped around a molded center tube for balanced flow and structural strength - all encased in a protective outer sock material. The end cap material is of injection molded, glass-filled nylon which provides superior strength and ease of maintenance. This material gives excellent support for the o-ring on the mounting/adaptor end.
