Flyboy Accessories is proud to be the exclusive distributor for the Aerolab Gascolator. This new, top-quality, flush-mounted Filter Gascolator, 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 Gascolator combines the best features of a standard
gascolator with the full filtration of a can style filter, all in one unit. Since the Aerolab Gascolator can be belly mounted, it really can be at the low point of your fuel system too. You can install a single Aerolab Gascolator just before the electric fuel pump or install an Aerolab Gascolator in each fuel supply line if you prefer.
The Aerolab 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.
