Stage One - Magnetic Filtration
Fuel system corrosion caused by ethanol-blended fuels can release ferrous contaminants that can destroy expensive fuel injectors and pumps. Stage one filtration traps these contaminants with a 35mm neodymium magnet. The magnet is placed at the filter inlet, which maximizes contact with incoming fuel and creates zero flow restriction.
Stage Two – Mechanical Filtration
Non-ferrous material makes up the majority of fuel system contaminates and are trapped in stage two. This stage utilizes conventional and proven mechanical filtration methods. All DW filters feature serviceable pleated 304-series stainless steel elements, which provide large surface area for maximum filtration capacity and minimum flow restriction. The filters are compatible with a wide range of fuels including pump gas, race gas, MTBE, ethanol, methanol, and diesel. Superior life span, maximum fuel compatibility, and high temperature tolerance give DW stainless filter elements a distinct advantage over competitors’ glass and paper filter elements.
The DW fuel filters are available in 2 pore sizes and 3 housing sizes. All housings are anodized T6061 aluminum with -8 AN ORB inlets and outlets. DW also offers a unique surge tank fuel filter that fits directly onto their popular 250iL and 350iL pumps. The new filters have been thoroughly bench tested and track tested over the past year in preparation for release.
