VC - Clay Treater Engineered Products and Packages

The VC Series Clay Treater provides removal of surfactants from liquid hydrocarbon fuels, as well as removal of acids or oxidation products from lubrication or hydraulic oils. It is commonly installed upstream of filter separators to remove surfactants that can disarm filter separators. The VC uses clay canister filtration media to absorb surfactants, often as a pre-filter.
