Parker Velcon's Aquacon® cartridges, with water absorptive media, chemically traps the water within its structure while also filtering particulates from the fuel. Parker Velcon’s Aquacon Diesel (AD) filters can remove both particulate and water contaminants in fuels to meet stringent downstream ISO 4406 and ASTM D975 cleanliness standards for both diesel or biodiesel fuels. The AD design incorporates multiple layers of both high efficiency long-life particulate retention and water absorbing media.


  • Parker Velcon’s 5 micron rated AD Series filters are excellent solutions for delivering fuel ready for dispensing while assuring both ISO 4406 and ASTM D975 cleanliness levels are consistently met.
  • Provides more reliable fuel injector performance by reducing particulate which can cause cascading damages
  • Reduces operating costs due to repair of equipment damaged by particulate and water contaminants
  • Reduces engine maintenance due to fewer components being damaged by contaminats
  • Provides more efficient fuel consumption due to fewer inhibiting particulate and water contaminants
  • Removes free aqueous contaminants from fuel
  • Aquacon - AD series elements are recommended for Biodisel blends over 5% (B5)


  • All filter components are compatible with diesel and biodiesel blends
  • Recommended change out pressure: 25 psid (1.7 bar)
  • Water absorbance and particulate retention will increase differential pressure to the change out pressure
  • Nitrile Rubber sealing materials are standard
  • Max. Op. Temp: 150°F (65°C)
  • Maximum burst pressure: 75 psi (5.2 bar)
  • pH range (continuous operation): 5-9
  • Inside Diameter: 3.5 in.
  • Outside Diameter: 6 in.
  • Length: 44 in.
  • Micron Rating: 5
  • End Cap Configuration: Open End
  • All AD products will remove free and emulsified water from both diesel and biodiesel fuels to levels below 50 ppm
  • The water absorbing technology used in AD filters is not effective in the presence of fuels containing high concentrations of alcohol
