Company Profile


    Electronic sensor for detection of free water in aviation fuel according to specification EI 1598, 2nd Edition. The AFGUARD® sensor is qualified for use as an alternative to Chemical Water Detectors (CWD) by Joint Inspection Group (JIG). The AFGUARD® is regarded as fail safe and fully hazardous-area (ATEX and IECEx) approved. Sensor System conforms to ISO 13849 standard.

    Application area (with reference to individual EI standard):

    • EI 1598 2nd Edition sensor can/shall be used in conjunction with EI 1581 filter/water separators, EI 1583 filter monitors, EI 1599 dirt defence filter as well as other technologies

    Technical Data:

    • Measurement range: 0 – 50 ppm
    • Linear analog output signal: 4 to 20 mA
    • Operating temperature: -30°C (-22°F) to +60°C (140°F)
    • Contact Load DC: 16 – 30 V DC

  • FW24-H-T Series

    FAUDI Aviation FW-24-H-T series are exclusively designed for mobile filtration of aviation fuel, where small amounts of water and/or solids may be present. Vessel type is qualified under witness testing according to specification EI 1581, 6th Edition, Category C, Type S-M.
    The filter/water separator is designed and constructed according to engineering guidelines and pressure vessel regulation AD-2000. Design and construction according to ASME Code is available if required.

    Application area:

    • EI 1581 6th edition, Category C, Type S-M, applies to mobile horizontal filtration in civil aircraft refuelling

    Technical Data:

    • Design & Construction: EI 1596, 2nd Edition
    • Design pressure: 10 bar (145 psi)
    • Maximum flow rate: 4.180 l/min (1.104 US gpm)
    • Equipped with: Coalescer Element P2.1-770-6, qual. to EI 1581 6th Edition, Category C, Type S-M & Separator Element 60.4C4-754-DV (Teflon® coated), qual. to EI 1581 6th Edition,Category C, Type S-M.
  • Dirt Defence Filter

    Dirt defence filters are designed to remove fine solids such as rust, sand and other particulates efficiently and continuously from aviation fuel.

    FAUDI Aviation dirt defence filters, both 2in and 6in, are qualified according to specification EI 1599, 2nd Edition. They are an economical and reliable alternative to filter monitor elements eliminating the associated SAP* (Super Absorbent Polymer) problem. They are intended specifically for retrofit into filter monitor vessels. Dirt defence filter must be used in conjunction with a qualified EI 1598 water sensor, e.g. AFGUARD®.

    Application areas:

    • Refuellers
    • Hydrant dispensers
    • Other mobile refuelling units

    Technical Data:

    • Nominal filtration: Acc. EI 1599, 2nd Ed.
    • Flow direction: Out-to-in
    • Change-out differential pressure: 1,5 bar (22 psi)
    • Maximum pressure differential rating: 12 bar (175 psi)
    • Service time (max.): Max. 60 months
    • Operating temperature: -30 °C (-22°F) to +80 °C (+176°F)
  • VFH Series

    The Vertical Filter Housing (VFH) assembly provides three element options to meet the requirements in the aviation fuel filtration industry: Coalescer/Separator Element, Filter Monitor, Microfilter (Prefilter)

    The VFH system fascinates by high economic efficiency as well as an easy installation. It is designed and constructed for easy element change-out. For use with JET Fuel, AVGAS, Diesel and MoGas.
