Overview
Carbon canisters have been used in automotive applications for decades.
They filter hydrocarbons out of fumes vented during day/night thermal expansion and/or refueling of tanks.
Canisters are then purged when fresh air is drawn into the tank during thermal contraction or while the engine is running.
By regulation, canisters must be protected from water and raw fuel, as both reduce their efficiency.

• Polymer body
• End caps welded to extruded body
• Mounting bracket rotates on end cap to allow movement of mounting bracket without stressing the canister body
• Optional heat shield available for mounting in engine compartments
• Marine grade of activated carbon - for lower moisture adsorption than automotive carbon

Canister sizing is dictated by both boat and tank size:

For Boats Under 26 feet Long ("Trailerable")
Tank = 000-062 gal >>> Canister = 0.5 liter
Tank = 062-093 gal >>> Canister = 0.75 liter
Tank = 093-124 gal >>> Canister = 1.0 liter
Tank = 124-186 gal >>> Canister = 1.5 liter
Tank = 186-248 gal >>> Canister = 2.0 liter
Tank = 248-372 gal >>> Canister = 3.0 liter
Tank = 372-496 gal >>> Canister = 4.0 liter

For Boats Over 26 feet Long ("Non-Trailerable")
Tank = 000-124 gal >>> Canister = 0.5 liter
Tank = 124-186 gal >>> Canister = 0.75 liter
Tank = 186-248 gal >>> Canister = 1.0 liter
Tank = 248-372 gal >>> Canister = 1.5 liter
Tank = 372-496 gal >>> Canister = 2.0 liter
Tank = 496-744 gal >>> Canister = 3.0 liter
Tank = 744-992 gal >>> Canister = 4.0 liter
The non-trailerable allowable tank volumes are larger because, floating in water, the tank is more insulated - and day/night thermal expansion/contraction is not as great.
