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.
