The primary purpose of clay treatment is to protect aviation fuel filtration systems and jet fuel by removing trace quantities of surface active agents (surfactants), color and additives commonly found in fuel.

The Attapulgus clay used in these cartridges greatly resists water saturation and provides maximum surfactant adsorptivity and filtration area found in clay treater cartridges.
