New ACS high pressure gascolator. Lighter weight and simpler design than the ACS "classic" gascolator. Bailwire and attaching hardware have been eliminated. Threaded collar secures bowl to top. Tested to 50lbs. Bowl is cadmium plated and top and collar are anodized for corrosion protection. Top has 1/4" pipe ports for 3/8" fuel line and one 1/8" pipe port for primer fitting.
Made in USA
Very high quality fit and finish. I would have given 5 stars but the design provides no positive provisions for mounting it. Other than suspending it from the fittings (generally a poor way to go) theres no threaded bosses or tabs to attach a good mount to.

Q: Are there any mounting provisions for the ACS high pressure gascolator?
Per the manufacturer, the high pressure unit (part # 05-04248) does not use the same bracket as the regular unit. It uses the Gascolator Mounting Flange found in the "Accessories" tab (part # 05-00907).
Q: While Gascolator (Part # 05-04248) specifies that it is high pressure, does it still work properly in a low pressure situation? I would like to use it downstream of a Facet pump (part # 40108) that will be used for boost/prime/backup to a mechanical pump. The configuration will be: Tank- Inline Filter-Shut-off Valve-Facet Pump-Gascolator-Engine driven pump. This is a carbureted engine.
Yes, it works in low and high pressure applications.
Q: Is the ACS High Pressure Pressure Gascolator a FAA approved for use in certified aircraft?
No, this gascolator is not FAA Approved. It is intended for use in experimental aircraft only.
Q: What are the fitting sizes? What is the maximum fuel flow?
Per the supplier: Top has 1/4" pipe ports for 3/8" fuel line and one 1/8" pipe port for primer fitting.It is tested to 50 PSI, but we do not have a fuel flow rate.
Q: I have your classic mounted on my plane. Does the ACS HP gascolator top have the same dimensions as the classic? If so, then I can easily replace my old one for this newer style. I hate the bailing wire style.
Yes, they both share the same dimensions.
Q: Can the ACS high pressure gascolator be installed with AN840-6D fitting?
Yes, this will work as this will have 1/4" NPT ports and AN840-6D has a 1/4" NPT thread.
Q: What is the weight of the ACS high pressure gasoclator (plus firewall fitting)?
