Fuel Filters

Fuel filters prevent harmful particles from damaging your engine & fuel system. Baldwin and Fleetguard® fuel filters are available for sale throughout Africa from Hytec Fluid Technology (HFT), a Bosch Rexroth Africa Group company!

 

Why use our fuel filters?

  • Protect your engine from contaminants
  • Effectively separate and remove water/moisture from fuel
  • Filter and hold both organic and inorganic debris
  • Prolong service intervals and engine life
  • Suitable for all types of engines and equipment

Fuel filters form part of the fuel system, designed to eliminate contaminations and impurities before they reach the engine. They prevent harmful particles like rust and dirt from entering the engine and damaging it.

Fuel filter types

Generally, there are two types of fuel filters – spin-on filters and cartridge filters. These house a range of products including engine filters, fuel filtration systems, and mobile filtration products, all designed to protect and prolong the life of your fuel system, fuel injectors, and fuel dispensers.

Spin-on fuel filters are installed in the fuel line found between the engine and the fuel tank. Cartridge fuel filters are designed for easy replacement because of a filter element (cartridge) installed into a housing, enabling you to only remove the cartridge during a replacement.

Protect your engine with our fuel filters

Your engine is protected from:

  • Water – Water destroys lubricative properties of your fuel, damaging fuel system components which results in fuel flow stoppage in cold temperatures.
  • Fungus and bacteria – They feed on hydrocarbons and spread rapidly in the presence of moisture.
  • Precipitates (non-combustible materials) – These particles collect at the bottom of fuel systems.
  • Particulates (black, tar-like contaminants) – Solid contaminants such as carbon particles can accumulate in fuel over time, leading to fuel injectors clogging and decreased engine performance.
  • Thick, viscous fuel components – Dense substances like heavy oils and bitumen can settle at the bottom of your storage tank, allowing slime and sludge to enter the fuel pick-up line and accumulate over time. This results in long-term fuel contamination, damaged fuel injectors, reduced performance, and increased maintenance.

Frequently asked questions:

What are fuel filters?
Fuel filters eliminate contaminations and impurities before they reach the engine. They function as a filtration system preventing harmful particles like rust and dirt from entering the engine and causing damage.
What do fuel filters do?
Fuel filters keep the fuel running smoothly in the engine. They help produce a stream of fuel that does not completely ignite, which is achieved by creating a fine spray of fuel that burns completely. Fuel filters must be regularly changed to keep the fuel injectors cleaner for longer. This, ultimately, translates to more power and more kilometres.
What are the different types of fuel filters?
Generally, there are 2 types of fuel filters – spin-on filters and cartridge filters. These house a range of products that includes engine filters, fuel filtration systems, and mobile filtration, all designed to protect and prolong the life of your fuel system, diesel filters, and fuel dispensers.

Spin-on fuel filters are installed in the fuel line found between the engine and the fuel tank.
Cartridge fuel filters are designed for easy replacement because of a filter element (cartridge) installed into a housing, which means you only remove the cartridge during a replacement.
Why are fuel filters important?
Fuel filters are a filtration system designed to eliminate contaminants in your fuel system and prevent harmful particles from damaging sensitive engine components. They increase your engine’s life by keeping your fuel clean, allowing your engine to function effectively. By preventing contaminated fuel from entering your fuel system and damaging your engine, they enable your engine to perform at an optimal level.
What are the signs of a bad fuel filter?
  • Difficulty in starting the engine
  • Misfire or rough idling
  • Vehicle stalling
  • Fuel system component failure
  • Fuel system component failure
  • Noises from the fuel pump
  • Overheating fuel pump
  • Reduced power and performance
All of these challenges are easily overcome by using a brand-recognised fuel filter, like Fleetguard and Baldwin Filters from HFT.
