All-metal gascolator with S.S. screen, 1-7/8" dia. cadmium plated steel bowl w/quick drain. Top is CNC machined from 6061-T6 aluminum. Top has 1/4" pipe ports for 3/8" fuel line and one 1/8" pipe port for primer fitting. Wt: 8 oz. May be used with aviation and / or auto fuel. Screen size is 122 microns. Replacement gasket for auto fuel is p/n 06-00441.
Made in USA
Note: for use with aviation fuel and standard auto fuel. Do not use with fuel injectors because it cannot stand up to the pressure.
Unit leaks on the fittings, In the description online it states NPT fittings which I bought, I cannot seem to get it fuel tight, It would be nice if the correct fittings would be linked in the spruce website so these can be ordered together.
While this seems to be a great filter for applications below 10GPH, at flow rates higher than that, such at the Rotax 912iS (with the fuel return), the filter area is too small, and the pressure drop is too high especially with the 74 Micron screen. It takes only a small amount of contamination on the 74 micron screen to create a large pressure drop. Would not recommend this for flow rates higher than 10GPH.
quality workmanship Missed ordering mounting bracket when placing order.
I have used these on several home-built projects and they have performed flawlessly. I have used these with the bracket for mounting and makes installation a breeze.
Perfect fit and replacement for my 7AC.
I second previous comments and add that P/N 05-00907 brilliantly solves the problem of the lack of a mounting bracket.
I installed this as a replacement on an experimental light sport plane. The quality of the gascolator and screen is great. The only down side I experienced is that there are no provisions for mounting the unit, so it must be supported by the fuel lines.
The screen size for this ACS Gascolator is 122 microns.
This particular gascolator is not recommended for use with fuel injected systems. However, ACS does manufacture part number 05-04248 (ACS HIGH PRESSURE GASCOLATOR). The high pressure gascolator is rated for use in systems up to 50 PSI.
Approximate height is 4-1/2". Approximate diameter of cylinder is 2-1/4".
Use part # 06-00441. See Accessories.
The unit has an 1/8" NPT threaded drain valve.
The max continuous fuel pressure would be 3lbs for part # 10580. If you are looking for a gascolator with a higher fuel pressure, take a look at P/N# 05-04248, this would have a 40lb continuous fuel pressure.
The diameter of where the inlet and outlet ports is 1" and the top port is .8". The diameter of the gascolator bowl is 1.875".
Maximum capacity of the bowl is 3.3 oz
Maximum capacity of bowl: 3.3 OZ
The fuel inlet and outlet are 1/4" NPT, and the primer and drain ports are 1/8" NPT.
