Anyone who has ever changed a fuel filter while offshore in the rough can take one look at the Racor SNAPP disposable fuel filter / water separator kit and immediately see its advantages. The Racor SNAPP boasts all of Racor’s advances earned over years of filtering water and debris from gasoline, bio-diesel and diesel fuels plus the new and innovative design that enables boat owners to change a filter without any tools. New Aquabloc filter media separates fuel from water with time tested, pleated, high-grade cellulous that actually attracts water and sends it to the bottom of the clear bowl enclosure. Racor makes certain that small-engine owners (up to 40 GPH) can see any debris in the bowl – just like the big bore filters! And changing the filter is so easy and cost effective there is no need to attempt to diagnose a water separation issue – just change the filter and go.
With Racor’s SNAPP technology, the whole filter assembly (filter and bowl with water and debris) is self-contained and can easily be removed from the SNAPP bracket. Changing the filter is so easy it can be done with one hand: just pinch the filter near the mounting bracket and pull. The SNAPP in-line system is easy to retrofit as well. The filter assembly bracket attaches to the bulkhead with screws, and simple fittings connect the fuel line on either side of the new filter system. The Racor SNAPP fuel filter system is designed for small gasoline and diesel motors (up to 40GPH) and filters are so cost effective that keeping a few on hand won’t break the bank.
No mess, no stress, no problems – even in the rough!
