Installation Instructions for Separ 2000
The SEPAR 2000 should be installed on the suction side of the fuel system, between the fuel feed tank and the engine mounted fuel-priming pump.
Install the filter in an accessible position to allow water and particulate removal and filter element change (a minimum of 24” is required for element change).
The filter housing has two inlet and two outlet ports to give options on installation position.
The ideal position for the filter is at the same height as the lift pump. However if the top of the fuel tank is above this position a ”full flow” ball valve should be fitted, before, the filter so that the fuel flow can be shut off to allow filter maintenance.
In application where the fuel level is below the filter it is still advisable to install a ”full flow” ball valve to prevent fuel draining back into the fuel tank.
After filter installation on system without a positive head of fuel, remove the filter lid and fill with fuel to assist in priming the system.
Avoid sharp 90-degree bends on the fuel system piping as these increase system pressure drop, as does any reduction in the internal diameter of fuel piping.
Check all fittings are tight and free from leaks.
For cold ambient temperatures SEPAR 2000 filters are available with an effective heating system.
