The installation of an additional fuel water separator is the number one investment serious common rail diesel owners install to additional ‘pre-fuel filter’ protection for standard fuel filters in the diesel delivery systems.
Fuel water separators are particularly important for today’s common rail diesel vehicles that typically have a high-pressure pump installed between the low pressure or delivery pump and the fuel injectors. These components require an extreme level of protection to avoid blockage or abrasions damaging performance.
The first line of defence against water and contaminants from contaminated diesel.
Larger particles and moisture are more effectively removed.
Prevents bacteria and algae growth or corrosion of the filter media.
Prevents emulsified water from entering the standard fuel filter media
Visual inspection of the water trap for water build up then drainage.
Additional injector and fuel pump protection.
Utilises a finer micron, high efficiency filter for contaminant capture.
Greater standard fuel filter efficiency avoiding premature replacement
