Velcon Aviation Filter Vessels


API/EI 1581 5th Ed. ATA 103 Updates 2009 ATA 103 Notice
In the latest revision of ATA 103 (ATA Spec 103 Revision 2009), many of the changes directly impact fuel filtration. This link provides some of the major changes and what they mean for those in the fuel handling industry.

 

Velcon VF-31 Filter VesselDESCRIPTION
The VF-31E is a versatile filter housing designed for use with several different high performance Aquacon filter cartridges. Cartridges are offered for the optimum filtration of aviation fuel (see caution on reverse side), gasoline, diesel fuel, oils, compressed air, and other gasses. Refer to the Cartridge Selection Table on the reverse side of this sheet for details. Aquacon filters eliminate water contamination problems by removing water from fuels, oils, and gasses. Filtered water is chemically locked into the cartridge’s inner super-absorbent media and cannot be squeezed out. As a cartridge reaches its water holding limit, the media expands very rapidly and restricts the flow of unfiltered material. This causes an increase in the differential pressure which signals the operator to replace the cartridge. When filtering fuels or compressed air, a saturated Aquacon cartridge will completely block the flow until it is replaced.

Velcon Fleet & Fuel Filter VesselDESCRIPTION
The VF-61EP1/2 is a versatile filter housing designed for use with several different high performance Aquacon filter cartridges. Refer to the cartridge selection table on the reverse side. Aquacon cartridges filter out water by chemically locking it into layers of super-absorbent media. Water removal efficiency is not affected by surfactants or additives, and once captured, the water cannot be squeezed out. Water capacity is as much as 1 1 /2 quarts, depending on the flow rate. These cartridges also effectively filter out dirt, rust and other particulates. (caution)

As a cartridge reaches its water-holding limit, the media expands very rapidly and restricts the flow. For fuels, the flow will completely stop, giving positive shut-off and guaranteeing water will not get downstream. For oils and other high viscosity liquids, the pressure drop will rapidly increase, signaling the need to change cartridges. The VF-61EP1/2, with ACO series cartridges installed, has become the standard for low flow rate full flow aviation fuel monitor applications.

Velcon VF-609 Filter HousingDESCRIPTION
The VF-609 is a versatile filter housing with bolted cover, designed for use with several different high performance Aquacon filter cartridges. Refer to the cartridge selection table on the reverse side. Aquacon cartridges filter out water by chemically locking it into layers of super-absorbent media. Water removal efficiency is not affected by surfactants or additives, and once captured, the water cannot be squeezed out. Water capacity is as much as 11/2 quarts, depending on the flow rate. These cartridges also effectively filter out dirt, rust and other particulates. As a cartridge reaches its water-holding limit, the media expands very rapidly and restricts the flow. For fuels, the flow will completely stop, giving positive shut-off and guaranteeing water will not get downstream. For oils and other high viscosity liquids, the pressure drop will rapidly increase, signaling the need to change cartridges.

Velcon CDF Monitor Filter Vessel
DESCRIPTION
The Velcon CDF Monitor Vessels, equipped with the CDF-K Series Cartridges, provide superior performance and reliability for assuring clean, dry fuel. These vessels are for use downstream of filter/separators or on refueler trucks. The presence of water and/or dirt in the influent fuel is indicated by an increase in the pressure differential (or a decrease in flow rate if the monitor housing is not equipped with a differential pressure gauge). These changes are the result of flow restriction caused by dirt filtration or water absorption in the media. The rapidity of these changes will depend on the quantity of water or contaminant present.

Velcon Clay Element Filter Vessels
VC SERIES STANDARD DESIGN FEATURES
VC Series are for use with Velcon clay elements in applications such as removing surfactants from jet fuel and acids or products of oxidation from lube and hydraulic oils. The standard design is fitted for canister type cartridges with knife seal mounting hardware. Velcon recommends our standard canister design because it offers you the following advantages over the bag type:
1. Positive Cartridge End Seal – prevents contaminated liquid bypass
2. Lower Purchase Price – the canister design eliminates the need for costly element standpipes
3. Easier, Faster Element Changes – with simple hand tools
