Re: Dual Pre Filters for Fuel

The Racor Duplex 500 works. Amel placed the filters low specifically to make it easy to prime/bleed with even minimum fuel in the tank without the need of a electric prime pump. Pumps that get used infrequently often get atrophy and fail prematurely.

Hi guys..
I have a SM'97 with a TMD22-B 
and MDKDP 6,5 KW genset and would like to change the single pre-filter for a (Racor?) dual filter.  I have no idea what the flow rate is or how to calculate it so was wondering what model of dual filter you have switched to and if you mounted the unit higher on the bulkhead to create more space below for drainage? If so, was there a problem with fuel flow from the tank or priming after changing filters?
Thanks in advance..
