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

Sump Recovery System:
The Sump Recovery System is a
closed circuit system for clean and bright fuel testing that allows the tested fuel to be
conserved, filtered, and circulated back into the fuel supply. Velcons Sump Recovery
System is designed to enable operators to re-claim fuel when sumping filter/separators,
monitors and other vessels under pressure that may have water in the bottom of the vessel,
per ATA 103 The system can also be used to re-claim fuel during filter change out with
API Qualified V and VV-Series
Compact VV Series
Filter/Separators comply fully with API/EI 1581, Fifth Edition, requirements for Category
C equipment. Units are designed for ease of maintenance with one piece threaded base
C5 Series Coalescer Elements and reusable one-piece Teflon ® coated screen
V5 Series Separator Elements (see Velcon Form 1923).
Filter Separator Vessels
Velcons AVV Series
portable fi lter/separator vessels are designed to remove water and solids from jet fuel,
military fuels, and diesel fuel. The units can be deployed rapidly in the fi eld to remote
sites to ensure clean dry fuel. The vessels are built and qualifi ed to ATPD 2320A for fl
ow rates up to 350 USGPM and the cartridges have been tested and qualifi ed to
Horizontal Filter/Separators HV Series
Easier cartridge change:
The horizontal filter/separator
design provides more convenient access to the cartridges than the vertical design.
A horizontal filter/separator
must be drained to change the elements. This prevents the possibility of getting dirt in
the effluent that can occur if the operator does not fully drain a vertical vessel when
changing elements. The separator mounting holes on a horizontal vessel are in a vertical
plane at the top of the vessel so it is nearly impossible to get dirt in the effluent when
cartridges are being changed.
A horizontal filter/separator
will normally cost less than a vertical filter/separator of the same rated flow, for the
Velcon HV Series Horizontal
Filter/Separators are qualified to API Bulletin 1581. These units incorporate one piece
threaded base coalescer elements for easy, reliable installation and reusable one piece
Teflon ® coated screen separators.

Horizontal Filter/Separator Vessels for Fixed Installations at Military Facilities
USAF Filter/Separator Specifications
Velcon HV-xxxx225 Series
Horizontal Filter/Separators are qualified to USAF Specification 15880. This speci
fication is similar to API/EI 1581, Fifth Edition, Category M. These vessels incorporate
one piece threaded base coalescer elements for easy, reliable installation and reusable
one piece Teflon® coated screen separators.

Compact Side and End Opening Horizontal
Filter/Separator Vessels for Mobile Fueling Equipment
Reduced Weight is
vital in the manufacture of refuelers and hydrant carts. Velcon Filter/Separators
drastically reduce the weight of the vessel. Reduced Size, is another
important factor in designing refuelers and hydrant carts. Velcon Filter/Separators reduce
the size of the vessel by up to 50%. Easier Maintenance, One piece cartridge
design provides faster changeout and fewer potential gasket leaks than stacked
cartridges. Industry Qualified, Velcon HV and HVS Series Horizontal
Filters/Separators are fully qualified to API Publication 1581, Third Edition, Groups I
and II, Class C (mobile installations). These units incorporate one piece threaded base
coalescer elements for easy, reliable installation and reusable one piece Teflon® coated
screen separators. ... 1214.pdf
Aquacon® Filter Vessels For Aircraft Fueling Trucks, Hydrant Carts and Cabinets
Positive protection against
water and dirt is provided by Aquacon elements in a manner that solves many problems
inherent in other aircraft fueling filters.
In fuels containing anti-icing additive (Di-EGME, FSII, Prist® ), stagnant water
bottoms can absorb large amounts of the anti-icing additive. This water/FSII solution can
disarm water absorbing elements allowing water to pass down-stream. Daily draining of the
monitor vessel and of water bottoms upstream of the elements is IMPERATIVE. Also,
changeout @ 15 psid.

Threaded Base Coalescer
Pleated Paper Separator Elements
150 psi ASME Code Construction
RF Flanged Connections
Swing Bolt Closure with O-ring Seal
Epoxy-Coated Interior, Primed Exterior
Pleated paper second stage cartridges are
standard in V series Filter/Separators for Diesel Grade Fuels and alsofor Jet Fuel
installations where this type of cartridge is specified.
Compact Design Simplified Maintenance
The compact VV-1033 is suitable for use where
the performance requirements of Group II, Class C of API Publication 1581 must be met.
This filter/separator can be used on mobile refueling equipment and in fueling cabinets.
The unit is designed for easy maintenance with a one-piece threaded base coalescer inside
a reusable Teflon® coated screen separator canister.
Low cost protection against dirt and water
contamination of jet, gasoline, and diesel fuels.
The Velcon V818 series
is designed for assuring CLEAN and DRY FUEL delivery at smaller installations. This
compact unit will meet the effluent clarity requirement of MIL-F-8901 when operated and
drained properly. Positive protection against water transmission when the filter/separator
is overloaded can be achieved by use of the Velcon CDF® Series elements option inside a
Teflon® coated screen second stage. This option provides in a single vessel the
performance which normally requires both a filter/separator vessel and a monitor vessel,
and effluent clarity will meet API/IP-1583 Monitor Specs. Installation is easy using
standard pipe couplings. Male and female pipe union is available as an accessory for
connection to the outlet to facilitate the installation and provide for quick cartridge
