Andair fuel filter is 62 microns.

Bevan, you should have a Gascolator (Canada eh?) after your boost pump, this should catch & illustrate any debris before it becomes an issue down stream. Is it a good idea to string a series of filters to protect a filter?
Maintain lots, upgraded - repaired - & modified more, rebuild a few, & built some too.

I have one gascolator in each wing root, about 75 micron if memory serves correct.
