The Radium Engineering high flow fuel filter has a 3 piece body that is CNC machined from 6061 aluminum and Type-II anodized for maximum corrosion resistance. Both removable end caps feature large -10AN ORB female threaded ports for high flow plumbing.
The fuel filter comes preassembled with Viton O-ring seals for all fuel types including gasoline, diesel, methanol, ethanol, and alcohol blends such as E85. High fuel pressures < 150psi can safely be used with negligible pressure drop.
The filter features a large 4.2″x1.75″ element maximizing flow without sacrificing filtration. The large elements also hold a lot of contaminants without becoming a restriction, resulting in a very long service life.
The Radium High Flow Fuel Filter is available with different filtration elements. Each option is discussed below.
The BOSCH fuel filtration specification states:
“Recommended filter quality: nominal rating 5um, minimum 82% capture efficiency according to ISO/TR 19438; dirt particles > 35um are not permissible.”
The Radium Engineering 18-0025-05 element (from 20-0220-05 filter) has a capture efficiency of 99.9% at 6 micron.
The chart belows shows the results of Radium’s in-house flow testing of the fuel filters. The pressure drop was found by measuring the inlet and outlet pressures at different flow rates.
