Transportation & Fuel Dispensing Filtration: 690R, 4120R, and FBO-14 For Fuel Distribution Company
Poor fuel quality was shortening the life of engine fuel filters on distribution trucks used by the customer. This created an assortment of problems, ranging from worn piston rings to destroyed injectors, increasing down-time and repair costs. With re-fueling stations in remote locations, and extreme conditions affecting fuel quality and delivery, Petrocity needed a reliable filtration system to address these problems.
Transportation Filtration: CNG Fuel Filter For Natural Gas Truck
The customer, who is the leader of Russian truck manufacturers, increased the amount of CNG powered vehicles due to the Russian Government program promoting natural gas vehicles. The challenge was to create a new low pressure CNG module for a V8-engine with two outlet ports and integrated ports for both a fuel temperature and pressure sensor. Additionally, higher flow rates were required all in a smaller footprint.
Transportation Filtration: Diesel Spin-on Series 660R30 for Nissan Navara Truck
The Racor distributor located in Nairobi, Kenya, service their customers light duty diesel trucks that operate all over Kenya and experience many different qualities of fuel. The on-engine fuel filtration system was inadequate and often bypassed water and particulate to the engine injectors.
PFL33770 Oil Filter Kit For Motorhome Application
A motorhome with a diesel engine has very little room for external components on the engine. The original equipment (OE) installed oil filter caused the cab to bump against it. In order to avoid costly body damage and improve service access, the
customer needed a remote oil filter to mount elsewhere on the chassis.
Direct Injection Thermal Valve For Engine & Chassis Mounted Filtration
Racor’s Direct Injection Thermal Valve uses warm fuel leaving the engine to heat the fuel on the upstream side of the filter. The valve, when activated by cold temperatures, diverts warm fuel from the engine outlet into the upstream side of the filter. The smart technology of the thermal valve activates and deactivates automatically allowing it to respond to unexpected cold weather without
overheating the fuel.

An LTL carrier located in Scottsbluff, NE., needed a filtration solution that would prevent cold fuel gelling and remove water during the cold winter months on the Great Plains. A Racor 4400R10 GreenMAX fuel filter/water separator was installed on a 2002 Freightliner truck with Detroit Series 60 Engine.
