FBO-10 Marine Fuel Filter/Water Separator - Replacement Elements
Select the replacement FBO element for your 10" or 14" FBO system. Replacement elements are available in 1, 5, 10, and 25 microns.The FBO assembly is used as a primary fuel filter/water separator on large diesel applications, as well as on mobile refuelers and re-fueling pumps. In engine applications, it is specifically designed as a primary fuel filter/water separator for today's high pressure common rail diesel injection systems.
The FBO assembly can flow from 5 gpm to 75 gpm, depending on the model, element, and type/viscosity of fuel to be filtered. Common applications include marine vessels, diesel locomotives, mining trucks, mobile refuelers, fuel dispensing pumps, fuel docks, etc.
Three element options are available to meet various requirements: 1) Fuel/water separators (coalescers) are the most commonly used elements - especially for single filter installations - as they both filter particles and contaminants, and separate water from the fuel. Today's sophisticated diesels are particularly susceptible to damage from water and particulates, so ultra-fine 1 and 5 micron elements are commonly used for this function. 2) Silicone-treated particulate pre-filters (also called microfilters) are most often used as primary filters to extend the life of filters further downstream. 3) Water absorber elements are most commonly used on fleet fuel dispensing pumps.
