Coalescer and separator mounted in the RVFS housing. Fluid/fuel is passed from the outside of the coalescer to the inside. The coalescer element provides primary filtration of the fuel as well as coalescing free water from it. The clean fuel passes through the separator barrier and into the outlet of the housing. The coalesced water droplets are repelled by the hydrophobic barrier and are collected in the sump of the housing. The sump should be drained routinely.
