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.

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.
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.
For replacement filter information for Separ 2000 Fuel Filter/Water Separators, see the Filters page.
For replacement lid gaskets or bowl gaskets for Separ 2000 Filter/Water Separators, see the Filters page for the specific Separ model unit for which you need gaskets.
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.
Available in 10 or 30 micron rating (60 micron stainless steel cleanable filters also available). Filters can be cleaned - please see backflushing procedures. Fuel then leaves the filter through port C or D. Plug off the port that is not being used. A vacuum gauge kit is available for installation.
Backflushing is required when dirt and water block the filter element. The following signs will indicate this procedure is necessary:
Loss of engine power
Black smoke may exhaust from the engine
Vacuum gauge will indicate a high restriction reading on the element of the filter.
Stop the engine or switch over to the spare filter on the switchable units
Open the bleed screw
This introduces atmospheric pressure into the filter
The dirt particles and larger droplets of water will release from the bottom of the filter element
Gravity will assist the dirt particles as they slowly fall to the bottom of the bowl
Open the drain valve (PUSH IN AND TURN)
The clean fuel above the filter will backflush through the filter element. This will release the smaller dirt and water particles.
Drain the fuel until the dirt and water are removed from the filter and the bowl. Close the drain valve.
Close the bleed screw (DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN)
You may now start your engine or switch back to the clean filter. If the engine still lacks power, try backflushing the filter again. If restriction is still too high, change the filter element.
