Fuel Filters & Water Separators
Today’s enhanced design and more precise engineering leaves less room between Cat® engine components than before, so using the right filter is more important than ever. Without a proper fuel filter your engine can become clogged with unwanted debris, such as dust and rust, restricting fuel flow and diminishing performance as your engine struggles to draw ample fuel to continue operating.
Cat Fuel Filters are specifically designed to capture the smaller particles that do the most damage to fuel injectors, fuel pumps and other engine parts.
Cat Fuel Water Separators provide the best protection for your critical fuel system components by removing large particles, all free water and 90 percent of emulsified water, to extend the life of your Secondary Fuel Filter.
Our highly differentiated design allows engine parts to function properly and avoid premature efficiency losses and failures because:
- Acrylic beads prevent bunching
- Spiral roving provides greater pleat stability
- A nylon center tube prevents metal contamination
- Molded end caps prevent leaks
We offer Standard, Advanced, and UHE filters to best meet machine and application needs:
- Standard Efficiency Filters are largely for older machines, where tolerances were more forgiving
- Advanced Efficiency Filters have increased contamination control without giving up dirt-holding capacity for stricter component and emission requirements in newer machines. It is also available as an upgrade from standard filters to provide an increased level of protection
- Ultra High Efficiency Filters provide optimum contamination control in all applications while still maintaining capacity. Recommended as a clean-out filter for use after any service work
