Stage 1: Prefiltration and Coalescence
The hydrocarbon and water mixture enters the coalescing element and flows inside to
outside. It is recommended that the particulate matter is removed using a 2m absolute
pre-filter. The small droplets of dispersed phase liquid come together, or coalesce, as the
mixture moves through the depth of specially formulated coalescer medium.
Stage 2: Separation
In separating water from fuel, water free fuel and large water droplets flow toward the
separator located directly below the coalescer stage. The separator medium is hydropho-
bic, which prevents water from entering the separator. Only water-free fuel flows through
the separator. Water and fuel are removed by separate drain connections.
