Originally developed for the US Air Force for refueling B-1 Bombers, the coalesce is capable of reducing water in fuel from ½% or 5000 ppm to under 10 ppm at 71 GPM per cartridge with inhibited jet fuel. This cartridge also works in No. 2 diesel at a flow rate of 35 GPM and on light oils up to ISO 32 in viscosity, flowing at 4 GPM per cartridge.
The coalescer will extend coolant life by removing oil and solids that promote bio growth. Tramp oil causes smoke when it contacts hot-machined parts. Processing with the coolant coalescer removes the tramp oil and thus reduces the amount of smoke in the machine shop atmosphere. In addition, when the separator is used on oil-contaminated water, it can lower oil content to an acceptable limit for legal disposal. Local ordinances need to be reviewed to define acceptable levels.
