Separ 2000/18GD with Glass Bowl, Metal Shield (U.S.C.G. and R.I.N.S. Approved), and Vacuum Gauge
Water and solid contaminants displace the fuel's lubricative coating on the high precision injection components. The loss of this protection results in wear, erosion, surface pitting and eventual pressure loss.
Many existing fuel filters aren't designed to remove significant amounts of water. They are designed to do their job in a single step. The Separ 2000 offers a compact design, high efficiency, low flow restriction, a long life filter element, easy installation, and simple maintenance.
Available with various flow rates from 1 to 260 I/min. Thereby offering fuel filters for an engine performance range of 5 to 10,000 kw.
Compact size, various ports, simple installation.
Manufactured from high quality non-corroding aluminum alloy casting, heavy polycarbonate or metal bowls and stainless steel hardware
High separation efficiency of water which is contained in the fuel.
Extended service time of the filter elements.
Protects the injection pump and injection nozzles.
Automotive industry - trucks, busses, mobile cranes, municipality vehicles, etc.
Construction equipment, compressor sets, agricultural equipment, fork lifts, etc.
Stationary engines - generators, welding and pumping installations, etc.
Marine Propulsion - for this purpose switchable filters are available. A water level indication can be supplied optionally.

About The Separ 2000:
SEPAR 2000 is a water separator and light diesel fuel filter. It is a completely new, multiple centrifugal system that provides a 100% solution to the problems of water and dirt.
FEATURES OF THE SEPAR 2000:
1. Small physical size in comparison to flow rate.
2. High performance.
3. Low restriction (delta P)
4. Long-life filter element.
5. Easy installation.
6. Simple in operation.

Sizing the Separ 2000 Filter:
The flow rate l/min. must be higher than the maximum capacity of engine mounted fuel lift pump. For Example: maximum flow rate of the fuel lift pump is 8 l/min. - corresponding filter SWK 2000/10 with a maximum flow rate of 10 l/min.
The Separ 2000/5/50 is 1.38 inch taller than the 2000/5 in the body to accommodate a slightly taller filer element. Flow rate and most other characteristics of the two models are otherwise the same.
Separ filters with other Option Combinations are available but must be special ordered. Please contact us for price and availability.
The "G" option of a vacuum gauge to determine when filters need back-flushed or replaced may be added to any configuration. Adding to any single filter purchase adds one gauge (part #30652), and adding the "G" option to any duplex filter purchase adds two gauges (part #30652), one to each filter. See shopping cart for price. Thread tap in lid is included in price with purchase of filter with "G" option (not purchase of gauge alone).
Separ 2000 Replacement Filters:
For replacement filter information for Separ 2000 Fuel Filter/Water Separators, see the Filters page.
Fuel is sucked into the filter by the action of the lift pump via either port A or B. Plug off the port that is not being used. The filter is designed for the suction side of the engine.
Fuel enters through port A or B where it will then enter the centrifuge, separating larger particles of dirt and droplets of water down to 30 microns. The centrifuge does not spin. The first vane system spins the diesel fuel in a circular motion as it passes through the channels of the centrifuge.
As the fuel comes out of the centrifuge it will then hit the side of the bowl and the fuel continues to spin allowing the heavier particulates and water to separate from the fuel and settle to the bottom of the bowl.
The fuel flows through the second vane centrifuge stage forcing the fuel to spin in a different direction and passes on the outside of the centrifuge. At this point the small droplets of water and dirt particles are thrown to the center of the bowl, moving around and forming larger droplets of water. There the larger vane will catch the particles and bring them down through the vane. This is produced by the vacuum on the lowest part of the second vane.
With the continuous circular motion of the fuel, the dirt and water droplets continue to grow together; becoming heavier and falling back into the bowl again.
Specially treated water resistant paper element will filter out all remaining finer dirt and water. The element slows down fuel to allow more contamiants to settle into the bowl.
