15 Dec Monitoring Filter Status on Fuel Filter Carts
Do you know when to change the filter on you fuel filtration cart? Chances are you simply follow a time schedule, wait till the fuel doesn’t flow as quickly, or use a standard pressure gauge. The truth is, all of these methods have flaws that are easily addressed by using a differential pressure gauge. Our filter indicators can cost as little as $15 and tell you exactly when to change the filter. As a result, you never change too early and waste a perfectly usable cartridge and never change too late, risking a damaged system. Our gauges are simple, cost effective, and take the guess work out. Standard pressure gauges fail to do so because they are based on the general system pressure. Because every cartridge is different and every plumbing arrangement is different, system pressures can vary widely. A differential pressure gauge doesn’t care what the system pressure is and only cares about the drop accross the filter itself.
