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.

Parker Velcon Clarifier – CDFX Update

CDF-X Update: Our Water Barrier Filter, CDF-X is now adopted in the A4A Operating Standard ATA-103 A4A Bulletin 2022.1: Bulletin 2022.1and CSA B836:22! In mid-January, A4A issued Bulletin 2022. 1 Water Barrier Filtration, January 2022 – the last step needed for full acceptance at airports that adhere to ATA-103. The next stage is acceptance by JIG and IATA.

A4A approves the use of Parker Velcon CDFX Water Barrier Filter

Following the IATA Super Absorbent Polymer (SAP) Special Interest Group report, the aviation fuel industry has collaborated to evaluate alternative technologies that can be fitted into existing fueling equipment. After rigorous evaluation, ATA103 is being modified to incorporate the second of these replacement technologies: the water barrier filter. Airlines for America (A4A) will continue working together with the International Air Transport Association (IATA) and the Joint Inspection Group (JIG) to assess other replacement technologies for potential inclusion in ATA103.

Transition Plan for Monitor Filter Replacement & WIF Sensor

With the recent clarification in JIG Technical Newsletter 9 (24 Feb 2021), it is clear that operators are now able to include new filter technologies yet to be included in the JIG standards, such as the Parker Velcon CDFX water barrier filter, as part of their Transition Plan which JIG members are encouraged to develop by the end of March 2021. Monitors can still be used up to 31 July 2023 so this will allow operators to fully evaluate the effectiveness of the CDFX for themselves. An excerpt from JIG TN9 is shown below:

Parker Velcon CDFX Water Barrier Filter is now available!

Please see attached announcement and datasheet regarding the Parker Velcon CDFX Water Barrier Filter which is designed to be a drop-in replacement for the 2″ monitors.

Parker Velcon CDFX elements are 100% qualified to EI 1588 1st Edition and can be installed at fueling locations not required to meet A4A or JIG operating standards; including General/Business/ Private Aviation as well as Military Aviation.

For commercial applications, the CDFX is currently undergoing JIPL field trials and it is highly expected to become a part of the operating manuals for both A4A and JIG in 2021.

Filter Monitors Withdrawn From JIG only from 1 July 2023, A4A phase-out to be determined.

JIG has announced in Bulletin No. 132 that Filter Monitors will be withdrawn from the JIG Standards with effect from 1st July 2023. This will allow sufficient time for drop-in replacements such as Parker Velcon’s CDFX Water Barrier Filter to complete its field trials which are expected to be completed before the end of 2021. The availability of the CDFX filter elements is expected to be made available shortly thereafter, well before the date 2023 dateline.

The CDFX Water Barrier Filter is a true drop-in Filter Monitor replacement that will remove both particulates and water, blocks water slugs and does …
