The PetroClear model 40530WA is a particulate and water sensing spin-on filter. This filter is designed to sense water, both free and emulsified, and slow flow as an indicator of the presence of water in neat gasoline and diesel fuels. This filter will not sense nor react to water in Ethanol blended gasoline. (Reaction known as phase separation)
Once the 40530WA has absorbed 5.9 ounces (175 mil) of water in neat gasoline or diesel fuels, flow will be slow and will be noticeable.
The 40530WA filter utilizes a standard 1.375" – 12 UNF mounting thread ref. (1" flow ) required for most spin-on filter Adapters used in agricultural applications.
Adapters are available for models 40510WA and 40530WA in cast iron. These single Adapters are available in 1" NPT inlet/outlet threads.
