H&V Filtration Brands

Consumers are turning to more efficient diesel engines to save money at the fuel pump. The newest diesel engine systems require cutting-edge filtration technology to meet strict government emission and fuel efficiency limits. As a leading supplier of fuel filtration media, H&V provides solutions for the greatest fuel filtration challenges.  

  • H&V’s fuel filtration media can provide filtration efficiency of up to 99.5% for particles over 4 microns and can achieve more than 150g/m2 of dust-holding capacity at most efficiencies.
  • New glass-free H&V media addresses the growing number of water separation challenges due to increased use of bio-fuels and lower IFT (interfacial tensions). Our media meet the 95% separation requirements even with IFTs below 16.

Need fuel/water separation? Vist our line of coalescer media.

H&V provides filtration media for virtually all fuel applications including diesel, bio-fuels, kerosene, jet fuel, and gasoline. As required by application needs, we combine coalescing layers with filtration layers using unique lamination technologies that deliver the longest life single stage products. Our products offer both single-phase and dual-phase technologies and are available in these broad construction families:

  • 100% synthetic, glass-free composite media with efficiencies up to 98% at 4 microns and superior 130g/m2 capacity
  • Dual-phase composite ultra-thin microglass media up to 99.5% efficient at 4 microns and up to 100g/m2 capacity
  • Dual-phase glass-free cost effective cellulose media up to 95% efficient at 4 microns with up to 50g/m2 capacity

H&V continues to develop even more advanced composite media to meet the newest engine needs in regions where fuel is not meeting ISO 4406 world fuel cleanliness levels. Our newest design and manufacturing processes provide greater roll-to-roll and lot-to-lot consistency, giving you easier pleater set ups and a more optimized production process. With mills in the U.S., Mexico, Germany, U.K, and China, H&V provides globally consistent products and short supply-chain lead times.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q)  Can your media be used with bio-fuels?
A)  Yes, all of our media are compatible with exposure to bio-fuels. However, in order to get the best performance in bio-fuel filtration you should consult with your account manager to find the best media for your application.

Q)  Is the microglass used in your glass and some composite fuel media designs safe for common rail diesel systems?
A)  When properly manufactured, microglass media has proven to work effectively and safely in common rail diesel systems. In fact, the inclusion of the microglass is responsible for the higher efficiency and higher permeability of our many of our fuel media.

Q)  Does H&V make fuel media with meltblown?
A)  Yes, H&V provides a full suite of fuel media made with cellulose, microglass, synthetic, and meltblown fibers. We can supply 100% meltblown media or composite media of meltblown with a base sheet which provide the optimum combination of efficiency and filter capacity.

Q)  How do I know the types of resin treatments available on your media?
A)  Your account manager will be able to describe what type of resin treatments are applied to the media we recommend for your application. This will vary based on the type of application. We do treat our media in order to add strength, modify filter performance, and to improve water resistance/separation.
