Cartridges Elements, Vessels, Housings and Condition Monitoring Solutions for Ground Fuel Handling Filtration.
Parker Velcon Industrial/Utility Systems, Housings and Filtration Cartridges are designed for clarification of industrial fluids and insulating oil used in the electric utility. Product lines include mobile carts and fix installation filtration systems.
Parker CLEANDiesel® filtration solutions are uniquely designed for diesel fuel filtration from refinery to dispensing and every transfer and storage points in between. Fuel may leave the refinery clean but as it is transfer from one storage location to another contaminants are introduced to levels that may overload filtration systems for today's Tier 4F and Stage IV high pressure common rail engines. Ensuring fuel meets ISO4406 cleanliness requirements specify by original equipment manufactures allows for increase period between maintenance and on-board filtration systems to efficiently focus on filtration of ultra-fine solid and liquid contaminants that can create costly download and unplanned maintenance.
For military fuel handling and filtration, Parker AFD has developed & supplied Parker Velcon coalescers & separator cartridges for vessels qualified to stringent specifications for military fuel filtration, specifically EI 1581 Specification and qualification procedures for aviation jet fuel filter/separators, Category M and M100.

For refuellers that had previously used 4” diameter DOD coalescers, Parker AFD has developed and qualified cartridges to meet the new EI 1581 6th Edition Specification.
This specification provides for two military categories - Category M for JP8 fuels, and Category M100 for JP8 fuels with thermal stability additive (Spec Aid 8Q462). Velcon has qualified:
• Category M - Models I-420MM & I- 440MM, as direct replacements for DOD-sized cartridges, and
• Category M100 Models I-420A4 & I- 44A4 are directly interchangeable with DOD-sized cartridges.
For refuellers with vessels containing 6” diameter coalescer cartridges, Velcon has developed and qualified coalescers to meet EI 1581 5th Edition, Category M - Model I-6xxMM, where “xx” represents the length of the cartridge. These coalescers can be supplied with threaded base mounting ends or with conventional flat caps.
