RCI fuel purifier?

Don't know anything about them but I questioned this statement from their website....

...the RCI Technologies purifier performs this function without the use of a replaceable, changeable, or cleanable filter element, cartridge, or bowl...

From the operators manual on their website it appears it uses heat as part of the purifying process and that the body of the unit has to be purged periodically to remove the water and contaminants which then have to be disposed of as hazardous waste.* So it's still using a bowl of sorts to collect stuff.

I seem to recall someone on this forum having a unit like this--- a pretty big one--- on their boat.* I don't know if it's the same unit as your link but IIRC it uses heat as part of the purifying process.* An archive search might turn this up for you as their was some discussion over its effectiveness.* I believe the boater with the unit was "Delfin"* ( I may have that avatar name somewhat wrong)
