VFGM Series SuperFlex™ Monitor Housings

Facet VFGM Series SuperFlex™ monitor housings, equipped with FG-O Series 6” (152 mm.) OD cartridges, continually check for the entire flow of fuel, not just mere samples, for water or solids contamination. By performing three jobs, the monitors assure clean, dry fuel. They absorb free and emulsified water, remove ultra-fine solids, and shut down system flow when hit with a localized slug of water. They are designed to flow from the outside to inside.

Facet’s VFGM Series SuperFlex™ monitor housings are built to ASME Code, constructed of carbon steel. Stainless steel  construction is available. Contact your Facet Representative for details. They are furnished with FG-O Series 6” monitor cartridges that meet the latest edition of EI specification 1583 Aviation Fuel Filter Monitors with Absorbent Type Elements.
