Parker Velcon ACO Aquacon® Water Absorbing Filter Cartridge

EI 1583 6th Edition Aviation Fuel Monitor Remove Water and Dirt from Jet Fuel and Avgas Outside-to-In Flow Cartridges

Parker Velcon ACO Aquacon® Water Absorbing Filter Cartridge
Patented Aquacon® Filter Cartridges have a unique high-capacity inner absorbent medium which removes all free and emulsified water from hydrocarbon fuels down to less than 5 ppm in the effluent. Absorbed water is chemically locked into this medium.

When a cartridge reaches its water holding capacity, its accordion pleats swell and cause an increase in the differential pressure which signals the operator to change the cartridge.

Solid contaminants are removed by the cartridge’s particulate filter media layers. The pleated accordion style design provides a large surface area for maximum dirt holding capacity. Models are offered for particle filtration down to 1/2 micrometer size with 98% plus efficiency. Performance is not affected by the presence of common surface active agents.

Compact Aquacon Cartridges are quick and easy to install. Models are available to fit most existing standard housings. Refer to Cartridge Selection Table on reverse side.

Use Form 1846 for cartridge changeout recommendations at flowrates less than rated flow.


  • Free and emulsified water removal to less than 5 ppm

Technical Information

  1. Max. operating temp.: 160°F (71.1°C)
  2. Micron ratings are nominal at 98%+ efficiency
  3. Aquacon Cartridges can significantly reduce flow when loaded with water or dirt. Appropriate precautions should be taken in applications where fuel flow must be maintained or where surge conditions can occur
  4. Replace the cartridge if the differential pressure exceeds 25 psid. For service life information, please refer to Operating Procedure #1839 or consult your company fuel handling procedures.
  5. Typical water holding capacity for ACO-61401P is 700-800 ml.
