    Fuel contamination, either in the form of dirt, sludge or water will always find its way into your fuel system. With modern engines now injecting fuel over 2500 bar/36000 psi, and injector tolerances measured in microns, it’s not surprising that even a small amount of dirt or water corrosion can start a major problem. Water or particulates can cause microscopic surface damage, which is then focused on by the high pressure flow, to cause significant wear which will eventually lead to reduced efficiency and complete injector break-down.

    Every time you squeeze the fuel dispensing trigger, you threaten your engine’s life. No matter how carefully fuel is handled or stored, dirt, rust, gums, algae, and water are going to find their way in; and a bad load of fuel can leave you dead in the water. Racor marine fuel filter/water separators with Aquabloc® media effectively removes damaging water and solids, allowing engines to run with more power and greater efficiency. Install a Racor mounting head, and spin-on a Racor fuel filter/water separator, for the life of your engine.

    How It Works:

    Racor Marine Spin-on Series filters use Aquabloc® media to reliably remove dirt and water from diesel and gasoline fuels. Aquabloc® media is pleated, corrugated, and arranged for optimum water rejection and longest service life. Fuel entering the filter head is diverted downward past the vertical media pleats, allowing larger water droplets and contamination particles to fall directly to the collection bowl. Smaller water droplets converge and coalesce on the specially treated media surface until they are large enough to also drop to the collection bowl. Small contamination particles are stopped at the surface of the Aquabloc® media, while even smaller particles are held deeper in the media layers. The result is the driest, cleanest motor fuel available for your marine engine.

    Gasoline Spin-on Series:

    These fuel filter/water separators are designed for high performance applications, and will help your marine gasoline engine perform better than ever with clean, water-free fuel. The mounting head and filter body are protected with a durable electrostatically applied powder coating for superior corrosion resistance. This spin-on filter design is simple to service, and the reusable clear engineering plastic or metal contaminant collection bowls feature a self-venting drain or metal plug, for draining out unwanted muck and water.

    Features:

    Being on the water is fun, having water in your fuel is not. And more than ever today’s high-performance gasoline inboard and outboard engines require clean, dry fuel. Racor filters offer the improved features and peace-of-mind that come with our quality fuel filter/water separators.

    • Corrosion-resistant coatings and construction
    • Ports available: ¼”-18 NPTF, 3/8”-18 NPTF, ½”-14 NPTF
    • 10 micron Aquabloc® media is standard; 98% efficient at 10 micron per SAE test procedures
    • Meets ABYC standard for gasoline-powered vessels
    • 2 micron Aquabloc® media option
    • Hand primer available on the 490-RAC-01 (outboards only)
    • Gasket and o-ring materials designed for gasoline use
    • The Parker global support and distribution network ensures that you can find our products where ever you are in the world
    • Note: Clear bowls are a fuel system inspection item: Inspect for damage, deformation, and discoloration often, and replace as necessary

    Diesel Spin-on Series:

    These fuel filter/water separators are designed for high performance applications, and will help your marine diesel engine perform better than ever with clean, water-free fuel. The mounting head, filter body, and bowl are protected with a durable electrostatically applied powder coating for superior corrosion resistance. This spin-on filter design is simple to service, and the reusable metal contaminant collection bowls feature a metal plug for draining out unwanted muck and water.

    These cost-effective filters are for on-engine or remote mounting, and come with hand-operated fuel priming pumps, a feature that allows for easy filter replacement and air purge. When it’s time for service, only the filter element is replaced—the bowl and drain plug are reused. Water-in-fuel (WIF) sensor upgrades are available to alert operators to drain accumulated water from the bowl.

    Features:

    Corrosion-resistant construction means bowls will not deteriorate from water collection, alcohol blended fuels, exposure to harsh additives, salt spray, or UV light. Racor’s UL-listed filters meet ABYC, ASTM, ISO, and many other global standards for filters used in marine engine rooms.
