The filter and isolating valve is positioned in the oil feed pipe, usually near the tank, running to the boiler. This ensures that the oil supply can quickly be turned off, for example, during boiler servicing.
The OFV is fitted with a nylon filter, this is important because even the smallest particle of dirt or rust can permanently damage a boilers oil pump and/or block the very fine oil atomising jet.
