Parker Velcon Clarifier update on WBF

Please see the attached Clarifier from Parker Velcon. Here are some highlights:
  1. Parker Velcon introduces the use of ACOX water barrier filters for their smaller VF-6series of filter housings for general aviation use.
  2. The CDFX water barrier filter does not require corrected dP because they do not capture water like SAP monitors. The requirement for a minimum 50% of maximum achievable flow rates are not applicable. Simply record the actual dP reading and stay within the 22 psi.

Our Founder, Sam Ngiam, has passed away…

It is with great sadness and regret for us to announce the passing of our beloved company founder, Sam Ngiam. 

Sam started Haneflex more than 40 years ago back in 1980. The company started as a small workshop providing maintenance services for petrol station equipment and have since grown to be one of the most established distributor of aviation fueling components in Asia today. 

He was greatly respected by his peers in the industry and he continued to come into the office daily up to the very end.  

Haneflex will continue to be managed by his son, David Ngiam.

Sam

CDFX Water Barrier Filters accepted by JIG!

We are pleased to announce that The Joint Inspection Group has announced that they have completed their final round of field trials of the Parker Velcon Water Barrier Filter and have written CDFX into their operating standards! Please see the attached bulletin.

  • CDFX is the latest technology in aviation fuel filtration.
  • CDFX is a Water Barrier Filter; IT REPELS WATER IN AVIATION FUEL SO IT DOES NOT GO ON-BOARD AIRCRAFT.
  • CDFX is qualified to EI-1588 2nd Edition.
  • CDFX has been approved for use by A4A, CSA and now JIG
  • CDFX is ready to install before the JIG deadline of July

Parker Velcon CDFX Water Barrier Filters requalified to the 2nd Edition of EI-1588

Parker Velcon is pleased to announce that the CDFX Water Barrier Filters have been requalified to the 2nd Edition of EI-1588. Parker is now working closely with JIG to move forward on the CDFX Water Barrier Filter acceptance into their operating standards.

In anticipation of JIG acceptance, Parker has built thousands of CDFX-230B elements for stock and will ramp up production as soon as they get the JIG approval. The outer sleeve of the CDFX has also been changed to black to help differentiate it from 2” monitor cartridges and dirt defense filters.

Parker Velcon CDFX Update – JIG TN #11

Following JIG Technical Newsletter 11, Parker Velcon has released a Clarifier to address this matter. Please download the attached documents below.
In summary:
  1. JIG delays the acceptance of the current CDFX due to inconsistencies in the adhesion of the end cap on a limited number of trial elements.
  2. Regardless, none of the end caps were ever dislodged, and downstream fuel quality for all trial elements continues to be on-specification.
  3. Parker Velcon has developed a new manufacturing process to make the end caps more robust and have requested EI to partially requialify to EI 1588 by the end of June 2022.
