RACOR–75500FGX2 Turbine Series Fuel Filter/Water Separator, 120 GPH
75500FGX2 Turbine Series Fuel Filter/Water Separator, 120 GPH
Have a fuel filter on “stand-by” to restore fuel flow. For installations outside of engine rooms.
It’s hard to predict when a fuel filter will be fouled by water or debris; it can happen at the worst time and render your boat inoperable until the fuel supply is restored. The Racor MAX Turbine Series fuel filter/water separators are designed to get the fuel system back up and running as quickly as possible just by switching a valve. The MAX Turbine assemblies feature two filters with a valve to direct fuel flow. Users can divert fuel from the clogged filter and direct it to the fresh one in seconds. Once the fuel is flowing through the clean filter, the clogged filter can be removed and replaced while the engine is running.
This assembly provides two 500 series Turbine filters. These filter/water separators have become the industry standard for water and debris removal. The mounting bracket and filter bodies are constructed of powder coated aluminum alloy to resist corrosion and feature the same top-loading access to elements for easy service and replacement. A front mounted valve provides easy access to re-direct fuel in the event of a clog. A pre-installed vacuum gauge helps to monitor filter life and indicate when the element needs to be replaced.
The Turbine design removes the bulk of the water in the fuel using centrifugal force. Remaining water beads up on conical baffle and drops to the bowl or is filtered by the Aquabloc® media in the elements. Deep pleats in the media trap particulate debris and provide an extended service life. Water and debris can be safely removed through a drain in each bowl.
It is always good to have a spare fuel filter element aboard to save the day. It’s even better to have a filter on stand-by that is ready in seconds to save the moment.
Note bowls do not include heat deflectors and do not meet ABYC and USCG heat test requirements for installation within engine rooms and other high heat locations (use Model 2666790 Racor 75500MAX2 for engine room installations)
