F Series – Clay Treater Housings
Clay treaters are usually placed upstream of a coalescer separator system to remove surface active agents (surfactants), color and additives from jet fuel. These unwanted contaminants may be present in fuel at the processing and refining levels or picked up from various transportation methods such as trucks, ships and pipelines that carry several types of petroleum products in addition to jet fuel. The contaminant compounds will accumulate and disarm the coalescer cartridge and reduce the water coalescing efficiency of the coalescer separator. Clay treatment removes the surfactant compounds, color and additives by adsorption and delivers treated fuel to the coalescer separator while prolonging the life of the coalescer cartridges.
