Goldenrod Water-Block and Particulate Filters

Product Information

GENUINE Goldenrod Waterblock and Particle Filters

RECOMMENDED - OPTIONAL SPANNER - Bowl can leak unless tightened properly

Goldenrod Filters are superb quality Fuel Filters with inexpensive replacement elements, a transparent, amber tinted polycarbonate bowl to aid visual inspection of the filter whilst protecting the element and fuel from UV damage, and a reverse threaded water-drain plug to release any free water that settles to the bottom of the bowl. Water removal is facilitated by 2 means, first is gravitational separation of free water into the bottom of the bowl, and the second is by the 496-5 Water-Block Filter Element, which is impregnated with a water-absorbing polymer which absorbs and traps permanently any water that comes into contact with it. To see what the polymer does please take a look at the image in THIS listing

Available with a 470-5 Particulate-Only Flter, a 496-5 Water & Particulate Filter more commonly known as a Water-Block Filter, or 40/80 Micron Stainless Steel Mesh Filter

Produced by the Dutton-Lainson Company USA, this factory produces both Goldenrod and Baldwin branded filters, which are of an identical pattern

Suitable for most fuels, including Diesel, Petrol, Kerosene, and Bio Fuels. The filter instructions state that the filter can only be used with B20 Biodiesel, this is due to the standard Nitrile Seal not being resitant to B100 biodiesel in long term use, however, each new element comes with a new seal, so use with B100 is not a problem as long as you change the filter/seal every time the bowl is removed

Unlike cheaper patterns of this popular filter, the Goldenrod filter has elements manufactured from electrically conductive, graphite reinforced PP, this ensures that the filter element, and all of its components, are fully grounded to the filter head (and connecting pipework) to prevent any risk of static discharge / ignition. Cheaper replacement elements are not manufactured in the same way and so we do not recommend that other manufacturers elements are used when filtering Petrol.

Optional Filter Spanner to aid removal and refitting of the filter bowl

Bushes can be found HERE, Thread sealant can be found in our Sealants section, we recommend either PTFE HERE, or Heldite HERE
