if water has been seperated. how do I know ? is any fluid in the plastic bowl water?

Asked on 06/10/2018 by nope from ri

Top Answer

These filters are set up so any water will settle on the bottom (more dense than gas so it settles). Not all fluid in the bowl is water, but you will distinctly see a clear layer on the bottom of the clear bowl if water is present. The black drain plug on the bottom of the bowl allows you to drain off any of this water before it fills the filter completely, creating engine problems.

Answer Question


can the 490-RAC-01 be used with diesel fuel?

Asked on 09/17/2014 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

While the 490R series Filter/Water separator is suitable for diesel applications, you should consult Parker for your particular application, as there are add on features you may be interested in such as a water sensor and fuel pre-heater element as well as differing filter media types. I have contacted the manufacturer in the past and received a friendly informative response the same day. Good luck and happy sailing!
