Portable filter trolleys cut operating costs & extend service life
Published:  05 August, 2010

The Racor Division of Parker Hannifin, has launched its latest range of portable purification systems designed to remove water and particulate contamination from diesel efficiently and automatically, significantly improving the performance and service life of a wide range of diesel driven machinery. Developed for use on cleaning fuel tanks, drums, bowsers and power generator and marine applications, the new filter trolleys allow maintenance to be reduced considerably, while also eliminating expensive downtime costs.

These latest fuel filtration trolley units are ideal for use as part of regular maintenance schedules, removing 100% of free water and between 80 and 90% of dissolved water from fluid systems through filtering of the diesel, eliminating the problems associated with water contamination including corrosion, dirt, particulate and bug growth. Filtration is carried out by the integrated Parker Racor FBO filters, through which diesel is automatically circulated to remove water, moisture and particles effectively.  

The filter trolleys have been designed for automatic operation, increasing running time and cutting labour costs, with a built-in automatic shutdown and alarm system to protect against engine damage from particulate and water contamination.

The self contained units are just 1m high and weigh around 45kg (not including delivery and suction hoses), with caster wheels, making it easy to move and transport. They have been designed specifically to withstand operation within a demanding industrial environment and feature a robust steel construction. Furthermore, the compact dimensions of the unit enables them to be moved quickly and simply to wherever they are needed.
