Fuel-Gard® Monitor Housings

The Facet VF-21SB/22SB, when configured as a monitor, is an economical, compact housing designed to remove water and solids from fuels.

Eliminate the need for other water defense devices and receive maximum water removal, solids holding capacity and shutdown protection to assure clean, dry fuel delivery while meeting the effluent fuel requirements of the latest Energy Institute (EI) specifications.

The Facet VF-21SB/22SB are versatile, compact, light-weight housings and provide superior in-line filtration protection.  Both interior and exterior surfaces of the carbon steel body are epoxy coated to protect against corrosion. This sturdy, single cartridge housing is easy to maintain and requires only 2” (51 mm) base clearance for cartridge change out.

These housings installed with one Fuel-Gard® monitor cartridge, will continually check the entire flow of fuel, not just mere samples, for water or solids contamination. By performing three jobs, this small compact monitor assures clean, dry fuel. It absorbs free and emulsified water, removes ultra-fine solids, and shuts down system flow when hit with a localized slug of water. Both interior and exterior surfaces of the carbon steel body are epoxy coated to protect against corrosion. This sturdy, single cartridge housing is easy to maintain and requires only 2" (51 mm) base clearance for cartridge change out.

  • Sturdy single cartridge housing.
  • Vent and drain connections with brass petcocks provided.
  • Carbon steel body.
  • Optional bonding kit available.
  • Optional mounting bracket available.

ACCORDING TO THE REQUIREMENTS OF EUROPEAN PRESSURE EQUIPMENT DIRECTIVE (PED) 2014/68/EU ART. 4.3, WITHIN THE OPERATING LIMITS PROVIDED ON VESSEL NAMEPLATE AND SUMMARIZED BELOW, THESE FILTERS ARE DESIGNED AND MANUFACTURED IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE SOUND ENGINEERING PRACTICE AND EXEMPT FROM CE MARKING AND CERTIFICATION: 10 BAR(G) @ 35°C FOR AV-GAS AND JET FUEL

WARNING: MONITOR CARTRIDGES SHOULD NEVER BE USED WITH FUELS CONTAINING ANTI-ICING ADDITIVES SUCH AS FSII, PRIST AND DIEGME. THIS INCLUDES PRE-MIXED AND MILITARY FUELS CONTAINING THESE ADDITIVES. THE USE OF MONITOR CARTRIDGES WITH FUELS CONTAINING ANTI-ICING ADDITIVES MAY RESULT IN (1) A FAILURE OF THE MONITOR CARTRIDGE AND/OR (2) MIGRATION OF FILTRATION MEDIA INTO THE FUEL STREAM, EITHER OF WHICH COULD POTENTIALLY CAUSE DAMAGE TO OR SUDDEN FAILURE OF THE CORRESPONDING ENGINE.

Differential Pressure Gauge - The piston-type differential pressure gauge provides a simple visual warning. When 15 psi (1.03) differential pressure is reached, the gauge indicator moves from green to red zone. This warning will prevent premature cartridge change-out.
