Parker Hannifin Corp.’s Racor Division says its R125 Fuel Filter/Water Separator Replacement Element is designed to be a direct replacement for the 300, 400, 600 and 700 Series Racor Fuel Filters in both the threads for the fuel filter head and for the collection bowl. If an engine is running an R45, R60 or R90 element, it now can be upgraded to a R125 without the need to purchase a new bowl, according to the company.

The R125P (30 micron), a larger filter with more capacity, is suited for biodiesel applications. A larger filter adds more filtration media surface area, which lowers the flow velocity going through each square inch of the media, extending filter life and increasing water removal efficiency. All filter materials and seals are compatible with ultra-low-sulfur diesel fuel and B2 to B20 biodiesel, Racor says.

The R125 is available for order with 2-, 10- or 30-micron Aquabloc II media. Benefits, according to the company, include optimum engine protection with Aquabloc II media, high capacity, high flow of 120 gph and easy changeout with existing Racor parts. For more information, go to www.parker.com.
