Title: FUEL INLET FILTER FOR FUEL INJECTORS
Abstract:
A method for compensating for a variable distance between two components of an apparatus for providing a fluid filtering device therebetween is provided. The method comprises placing an adjustable filtering device between two components, altering the distance between the two components, and compensating for the change in distance between the two components by varying a dimension of the adjustable filtering device. The fluid filter device comprising: an upper housing (224); a lower housing (228); a resilient member (218) that is operatively connected to the upper and lower housings (224, 228) and that is configured to bias the upper and lower housings apart (224, 228); and a flexible filter mesh (220) that is operatively connected to the lower and upper housing (228, 224) and that is configured to filter a fluid that passes between the lower and upper housings (228, 224).
