Selecting the correct replacement element:
Use the links below to purchase the filter with the proper micron for your Racor filtration system.
How to select the correct micron rating for your application:
30 micron: This is always considered a primary filter. It is the first filter in line as fuel travels toward your engine. It is used to filter raw fuel or fuel that is known to be of a poor or questionable quality. This size filter is used before the fuel is passed on for futher filteration by either a 10 or 2 micron filter.
10 micron: The 10 micron filter is usually used as a primary filter where the fuel is known to be of a good quality. The position of this filter is flexible. It can be used as a primary or secondary filter. In most cases this filter is used as a primary filter before the fuel is passed on to the engine's secondary filtering system which is usually a 2 micron final filter.
2 micron: The two micron filter is always used as secondary (or final) filtration. It follows either a 30 or 10 micron primary filtration unit.
A simple rule to remember is that the finer the filtration, the more frequent the filter change. No matter what micron filters you use in your system you should always have spare filters on board your vessel.
