CNC Machined Stainless Steel Fuel Filter Housing for a Power Generation Application

A customer in the power generation industry contracted Allied Precision for the custom CNC machining of the fuel filter housing as shown here. 316 steel was turned and milled on our state-of-the-art CNC lathe with live tooling and our CNC vertical mill. Drilling and chamfer cutting were also utilized for the openings and angled grooves of the part. To remove any residual material from machining, the housing was deburred and ball honed to properly finish the bored surfaces. The part maintained a mix of a raw and machined finishes. Exacting tolerance of ± 0.05mm and an angular tolerance of ± 30 min were held throughout. Two hundred pieces were delivered to the client in Pennsylvania with a turnaround time of 4 weeks.

Finished part dimensions were 125.2mm long x 28mm wide x 36mm high. As a part of our rigorous quality control measures, dimensional and visual inspections were implemented throughout production to verify accuracy and functionality. Allied Precision is committed to exceeding customer expectations, being a consistent and reliable source for high quality machined parts.
