|Please note: the main filter unit is temporarily backordered. At this time (May 29, 2018), the filter units are in process at the machine shop and moving along. I do not have a definite delivery date, as there are many steps in the manufacturing process with uncertain timelines, but our current estimate would expect delivery around the end of July 2018. If you would like to be notified of updates and availability, please contact email@example.com. Accessory parts are in stock and available to order.
Flyboy Accessories is proud to be the exclusive distributor for the Aerolab Filter Gascolator. This new, top-quality, flush-mounted filter assembly, made by Aerolab in Italy, has been designed to be installed inside the fuselage, flush mounted in the belly skin. It can also be flush mounted in other convenient places, like inside the wing or under the cowling.The Aerolab Filter Gascolator is designed to be an easily serviceable fuel filter, with gascolator functionality built in. The unit mounts flush on the belly of the airplane. You can install a single Aerolab Filter Gascolator just before the electric fuel pump or set up the system to use two filters, one in each fuel supply line.
The Aerolab Filter Gascolator is easily
sumped with a standard fuel tester, and it's easily serviced from the outside of the aircraft where there's no risk of a smelly fuel spill ruining your interior like a can style filter might do.
The unit has a stainless steel pleated filter to catch even the finest debris, a positively locking cap, a flush sump drain in a streamlined housing, and readily available O-rings should you ever need one. The units have been pressure tested up to 100 PSI (0.7 MPA) and may be installed in the pressurized section of the fuel system.
It is our opinion that the Aerolab Gascolator is far superior to any other fuel filtration device found on any light aircraft. We also believe that it should easily meet the Canadian requirement to have a
gascolator installed on the aircraft.
