Fuel filter

Fuel filter

The fuel filter is a filter placed in the fuel line, which basically cleans dirt and rust particles contained in the fuel. Usually it is made of filtration paper which is inside a metal body. These filters are used in most internal combustion engines.

Unfiltered fuel may contain other contaminants such as particles of paint, dirt, which can be introduced into the tank while filling, or rust caused by moisture in a steel tank. If these substances are not removed before the fuel enters into the injection system, this will lead to rapid wear and failure of the fuel pump and injectors, due to the effect of particles on the high-precision components used in modern injection systems. 

 
VeGa filters are:
 
Made of high quality materials
Very good filtration to reduce engine wear
Cover the requirements of automobile manufacturers
 
 
 
Fuel filters are used in all combustion systems, but especially in diesel engines they have certain characteristics. They are produced in such shape so that they can separate water from diesel. Water can be drained by opening a valve at the bottom of the filter and to be allowed to run until the filter contains only diesel. Many fuel filters contain a water sensor to signal to the engine control unit or directly to the driver (lamp on the dashboard), if the water reaches the warning level. It is a serious problem if water is introduced into the diesel fuel system, as the system relies on lubrication of moving parts, and if water gets into the moving parts that require constant lubrication (e.g. injector valve), it will quickly cause overheating and unnecessary wear. Near the diesel fuel filter there may be a fuel heater to prevent the formation of wax (in the case of low temperatures) inside the filter element which can stop the flow of fuel to the engine. 
 
 
 
Fuel filters should be replaced at regular intervals. This is simple procedure, usually just disconnecting the old fuel filter and replacing it with a new one. If the filter is not replaced regularly it can be clogged by contaminants and cause a limitation in fuel flow, causing noticeable drop in engine performance as engine struggles to draw enough fuel to continue to operate normally.
