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.
Please see the below Parker Velcon Clarifier …
Following JIG Technical Newsletter 11, Parker Velcon has released a Clarifier to address this matter. Please download the attached documents below.
- 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.
- Regardless, none of the end caps were ever dislodged, and downstream fuel quality for all trial elements continues to be on-specification.
- 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.
As Intoplane fueling operations begin reviewing re-commissioning processes for mobile and fixed aviation fueling equipment, it is important to ensure all critical fueling components are inspected and tested before being reintroduced back into fueling operations.

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:

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.

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 …
