fuel filter cartridges – replaceable elements with pleated partition, providing effective filtration surface, assembled on a rigid central core, resistant to high pressure,
screwed-on box filters – cartridges integrated with metal housing.
In case of heavy goods vehicles, being driven on long distances, they are exposed to temperature changes, moist and humidity and other difficult weather conditions, that may cause paraffin wax precipitation or water collection. Fuel filter is used for stopping all types of impurities, protecting modern fuel systems, which are really sensitive to any particles of dirt, providing long-term, trouble-free operation of the whole system.
Worn-out filter may cause problem with smooth engine operation, lower engine performance, and also influence cranking the engine and starting system. Because of the above, regular, frequent replacement is recommended, protecting the engine from serious damages that may result improper maintenance.
Fuel, like every type of liquid that is used in a car, is exposed to numerous different impurities. Starting from the process of production, through transportation, storage, and the whole fuel system of a heavy goods vehicle, fuel collects dust, metal file-dust and rust.
