Today we are announcing the release of its line of high flow fuel filters. Our fuel filters feature an industry first dual-stage magneto-mechanical filter element, which provides an extra layer of protection for e85 and other ethanol-blended fuel users.
Stage One - Magnetic Filtration –
Fuel system corrosion caused by ethanol-blended fuels can release ferrous contaminants that can destroy expensive fuel injectors and pumps. Stage one filtration traps these contaminants with a 35mm neodymium magnet. The magnet is placed at the filter inlet, which maximizes contact with incoming fuel and creates zero flow restriction.
Stage Two – Mechanical Filtration – Non-ferrous material makes up the majority of fuel system contaminates and are trapped in stage two. This stage utilizes conventional and proven mechanical filtration methods. All DW filters feature serviceable pleated 304-series stainless steel elements, which provide large surface area for maximum filtration capacity and minimum flow restriction. The filters are compatible with a wide range of fuels including pump gas, race gas, MTBE, ethanol, methanol, and diesel. Superior life span, maximum fuel compatibility, and high temperature tolerance give DW stainless filter elements a distinct advantage over competitors’ glass and paper filter elements.
Comprehensive Options – The DW fuel filters are available in 2 pore sizes and 3 housing sizes. All housings are anodized T6061 aluminum with -8 AN ORB inlets and outlets. DW also offers a unique surge tank fuel filter that fits directly onto their popular 250iL and 350iL pumps. The new filters have been thoroughly bench tested and track tested over the past year in preparation for release.
Faruk Kugay has been using 2 DW Fuel Filters in the PRO 2 Division of Formula Drift. Utilizing two DWFF160 housings with the 10 and 100 micron filter elements pre and post in-line pump. The filters have been subject to the very corrosive e85 throughout the year with 100% success in a motorsport setting.
