This special filter gascolator has been designed for RV style application, but can be installed in several other aircraft.
The main goal is to have a filter gascolator easily
accessible and serviceable from outside the aircraft, without loosing/tightening the AN fitting of the fuel system.
The diameter of the cap is 2-1/2"
Total weight of the unit is 0.683 Lb/310 g
This filter gascolator can be installed on each of the lines coming from the wing fuel tank (double filter installation) or installed just before the electric fuel pump (single filter installation).
Since the unit has been pressure tested up to 100 PSI (0,7 MPA) will be no problem when installed in a pressurized section of the fuel system.
The fuel filter is a 75 mesh stainless steel screen, and it can be easily serviced, cleaned and, if necessary, replaced.
A locking button (red) prevents the inadvertent opening or loss of the cap in flight.
A dedicated valve is designed to interrupt the flow of the fuel from the tank (s) when servicing the filter.
A drain valve is installed in the cap.
