Velcon VF Performance Filter Housings

Velcon Aquacon Filter Cartridge Housings
Clean Dry Fuels and Oils with High Performance Aquacon® Filter Cartridges

The VF-61, and VF-62 are versatile filter housings designed for use with several different high performance Aquacon filter cartridges, as well as a variety of paper filters and coalescer/separator cartridges.

Aquacon cartridges filter out water by chemically locking it into layers of super-absorbent media. Common surfactants or additives do not affect water removal efficiency. Water capacity is as much as 11/2 quarts, depending on the flow rate. These cartridges also effectively filter out dirt, rust and other particulates. As a cartridge reaches its water-holding limit, the media expands very rapidly and restricts the flow. For oils and other high viscosity liquids, the pressure drop will rapidly increase, signaling the need to change cartridges.

The VF-61, with ACO series cartridges installed, has become the standard for low flow rate full flow aviation fuel monitor applications. Use the VF-61E with band clamp closure for areas with
limited space.
