Parker Hannifin has launched high-performance duplex filters that extend its range of Fuel Filter Water Separators to meet SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea) requirements in heavy-duty marine applications.

The current Turbine Series is an aluminium product certified to meet the requirements of UL and the Small Craft directive (vessels up to 24M in length and weighing less than 500 tonnes).

The new DFBO units will be qualified to DNV, GL and LR.

They will be constructed wholly of steel/cast iron in order to meet SOLAS requirements.

The DFBO also utilises an advanced multi-stage filter separator similar to that supplied by the company in its API/IP approved aviation fuel coalescers, allowing extremely high flow rates in a small package space while maintaining the high water separation performance.

By separating fuel from water and particulate contamination, the DFBO Series of filters allow vessel operators to boost productivity by reducing the risk of contamination-related problems.

According to Parker, these duplex filters enable maintenance requirements and costs to be further reduced.

The DFBO duplex filters have been manufactured to ensure continuous and efficient fuel filtration for a range of marine applications, including fuel systems on diesel engines, marine fuel docks and diesel fuel dispensing systems.

Each filter features a durable cast-iron head and steel bowl construction, allowing it to provide a long service life.

The units can be fitted quickly and maintenance can be carried out without wrenches or special tools.

The DFBO filters are available in two bowl lengths and can be used at nominal flow rates of up to 90 litres/min, system pressures of up to seven bar and operating temperatures of between 0 and +80C.

The units are compatible with a wide range of filter elements with micron ratings of 10um and 25um, enabling them to be used as either a pre-filter or a water separator and particle filter, as well as a water absorptive filter.
