When you’re looking for a fuel-air separator for your car, you should know a few things:
- First, it works by separating water and fuel.
- The water will fall to the bottom of the filter while the power will rise through the treated surface.
- The lighter fuel will pass through the next stage.
Inline air separators
Inline fuel-air separators work by isolating air from a fluid flowing through a vehicle. The air separates from the liquid and moves to an air vent. It then sends dissolved air to a compression tank.
Fuel air separators have many advantages. They reduce fuel consumption, prevent exhaust emissions, and extend injector life. In addition, they increase fuel economy, boost power output, and improve your vehicle’s smooth idle. Add fuel into your vehicle’s tank to maximize the benefits of inline fuel-air separators.
An inline fuel air separation system will improve your vehicle’s fuel economy and performance. It will also improve throttle response. In addition, the system will remove entrained air and water vapor from the fuel.
Types of fuel-air separator
There are two types of fuel-air separators: the 300 and 600WP models. The separators are relatively small and made of welded aluminum. You’ll need a special Y-pipe for installation.
The fuel-air separator works by sucking the oil and water out of the engine’s fuel. This makes the engine burn cleaner, resulting in more efficient fuel consumption. This is also an environmentally friendly solution. The separator also helps keep engines clean since it reduces their oil.
The fuel-air separators are compatible with most diesel engines. The separator chamber can be angled, so fumes enter the bottom and filtered air rises. The drive mechanism 56 can be mounted beneath the separator chamber or under the filter.
Turbine Series System
An inline solution air separator captures air and returns it to the tank, thereby preventing spills. Its unique design allows air to pass through and traps fuel, ensuring fuel does not spill out and ruin expensive finishes.
It has an integrated filter header and a small mounting bracket. The aluminum filter header has large 3/4″ SAE priming/air purging ports and fuel ports that are 7/8″-14 UNF in size. In addition, a spin-on filter element with a 10-micron filtration rate fits inside the filter head.
The Turbine Series system is the most popular fuel filter water separator. It features an ultra-efficient filter with a graduated pore structure and pleat-spacing corrugations for a higher dirt-holding capacity. The filter elements are also water and rustproof.
Wet vacuum pump
A wet vacuum pump is an excellent choice for fuel-air separator applications. The pipe’s diameter should be at least C-2, and the maximum air flow should be 3,000 fpm. In addition, the pipe should not have U-shaped loops, and the discharge manifold must be level with the inlet flange of the discharge separator.
Plunger pumps are an excellent choice for fuel-air separator applications. Scroll vacuum pumps feature a cylinder made of solid, long-spiral material. The plunger is stationary, which allows the pump to use a complicated sealing system.
Wet vacuum pumps are generally cheaper than dry vacuum pumps. This is because they are lubricated with a small volume of engine oil routed through the pump during operation. However, the downside of a wet pump is that oil can mix with the fuel and get in the way of filtration.
