Freefall Posted January 27, 2012 Report Share Posted January 27, 2012 I am curious what you or your employers have chosen for a filter set up for light/intermediate refueling gear, and how happy you are with it? We are currently using a wix filter bowl with a "go-nogo" water filter after it.It is the set up northern mountain used years ago. The biggest drawback I find is that if something is clogged, you don't necessarily know which filter it is, plus pushing the fuel through two filters is slower for the GPI pumps. I know some people use just the wix filters alone. Is it as effective as other water blocking filters? My old employer used the Velcon Spin on filters by themselves which seemed to work well. The downsides are the filters cost like 80 dollars each, so its expensive if you have to change them, plus you can't visually see the fuel which you can do with the wix bowls. Also if you get any concentrated fsii in them, the filter breaks down and the pulpy mess goes into your helicopter. What do you guys think is the best filter set up?
