    • Designed for use on all Racor 500 / 900 / 1000 Turbine Series Diesel Fuel Filter / Water Separator assemblies
    • This gauge measures the increase in vacuum due to contamination of the Filter
      • T-Handle Vacuum Restriction Indicator monitors the diesel filter's condition as the filter becomes clogged with contaminants
      • The T-Handle gauge accurately measures filter contamination with any size micron filter
      • As the filter gets dirty, restriction increases and less fuel is delivered to the engine, causing the engine to lose power and eventually stall
    • Installs in one easy spin:
      • Simply remove existing T-handle and replace with the RK32348 T-Handle Vacuum Indicator (Not a Kit / Fully assembled / Complete with O-ring)
    • The T-handle design allows for filter cover removal without tools
    • Maximizes fuel filter life and lengthens fuel filter change out intervals
    • Easy to read:
      • Locks in position at highest measured filter contamination level
      • When the Yellow internal indicator approaches the Red Zone, Change the Filter. (Red Zone indicates 10” Hg vacuum) Green Zone ” Good To Go”
      • 360° Viewable
      • The gauge can be read anytime, even days after the engine has been off
    • Internal Check Valve:
      • The T-Handle has a check valve to allow usage with priming pumps and prevent leaks if the gauge is damaged
    • Easy and Safe Reset Button:
      • Located on top of gauge, and never opens gauge to the outside atmosphere
    • Works as a Diagnostic tool for other fuel problems:
      • Helps to Diagnose: ( After filter change)
        • Collapsing fuel lines
        • Bad / Closed fuel valves
        • Clogged fuel pick-ups
        • Heavily Contaminated fuel tanks
    • Takes the guesswork out of diesel fuel filter maintenance:
      • Maximize filter life, Stop Guessing when to change filters
      • Know immediately when bad fuel is pumped onboard
    • All components are 100% Diesel Fuel Compatible
      • Use with diesel, bio-diesel, and kerosene
    • Lowers operational costs / down time
    • Helps to keep unnecessarily changed filters from being discarded
    • Made in the U.S.A.


    • Accuracy: ± 10%
    • Calibration: 10 inHg (34 kPa) at Red zone
    • Material: Brass and Chemical Resistant Nylon*
    • 2.5 “ (6.4 cm) higher than original T-Handle / Over all height 4.8” (12.2 cm)
    • Operating Temperature -40° to +250°F (-40° to +121°C)

    Note: Not for use in Gasoline Applications

    Installation Note:

    • Hand Tighten ONLY - The T-handle should ONLY be hand tight
    • That DOES NOT mean as tight as you can get it by hand and it certainly does not mean use two hands
    • The 0-ring seals the T-handle to the lid and only needs to be snug
    • Over tightening the T-handle can damage both the 0-ring on the t-handle and the 0-ring inside the filter cover
    • 0-Rrings seal surprisingly easily, at very low torque and seldom loosen up
