Alliance AutoGas has aligned with Donaldson Co. to release a new line of LPG filters that are designed to remove potentially harmful particulate matter and heavy ends from propane systems.

The filters are currently available through propane equipment distributors nationwide.

According to Alliance AutoGas, while it’s common for gasoline and diesel fuels to be filtered multiple times as they are transported to end users, propane has historically not been filtered. As propane has gained popularity as a transportation fuel, called autogas, consistent fuel quality has become a greater need for fleet customers.

Two new filters from Alliance AutoGas and Donaldson have been specifically designed to eliminate potential fuel contamination issues with propane fuel dispenser systems. A primary LPG particulate filter was developed to remove 99% of harmful particulates 0.5 micron and larger. Also, a secondary absorbent carbon filter was engineered to remove heavy ends without removing the odorant from propane.

The filter housings are made from a high phosphorus nickel-plated steel, meeting current NFPA 58 (5.17.1.3) requirements for pressure containing metal parts.

The filters can be sold and installed separately or together for a customized solution.
