This Pentek FloPlus-20BB carbon block filter cartridge reduces fine sediment, chlorine taste and odor, and protozoan cysts in residential drinking water. It has a nominal (85%) filtration rating of 0.5 micron, and 99.95% efficiency for the reduction of protozoan cysts. It’ll reduce free to be had chlorine (FAC) at 2 parts per million (ppm) by no less than 90% in as much as 50,000 gallons at a drift rate of 4 gallons per minute (gpm). This cartridge is made of modified bonded powdered activated carbon (PAC) filter media that gives efficient cyst reduction with a drift rate and dirt-holding capacity comparable to these of a 10-micron filter. The Santoprene (TPE, thermoplastic elastomer) gaskets seal the cartridge against the housing (sold one by one). The cartridge has an initial pressure drop of 4 pounds per square inch (psi) at a drift rate of 4 gallons per minute (gpm), and operates over a temperature range of 40 to 180 degrees F (4.4 to 82.2 degrees C). This carbon block filter cartridge meets National Sanitation Foundation/American National Standards Institute (NSF/ANSI) standard 53 for quality assurance, and is used for purification of residential and commercial drinking water.

The nominal filtration rating is for a particle removal efficiency of 85%. Protozoan cysts include Giardia, Entamoeba, Cryptosporidium, and Toxoplasma. Chlorine reduction capacity is the minimum total amount of water for which the free to be had chlorine (FAC) at a concentration of 2 ppm is reduced by no less than 90%.
H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to easiest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.
Water filters get rid of undesirable particles, chemicals, and microorganisms from water by the use of a semipermeable barrier, adsorption, or biological processes. They’re made of densely packed man-made or natural fibers that trap suspended particles, materials that block microbes or adsorb unwanted chemicals, or substances that cause a chemical change, such as acid neutralization. For most residential, commercial, and industrial applications, water filters are manufactured within the type of replaceable cartridges that fit inside permanent housings. Filtration systems most often consist of a series of two or more forms of filters, each and every designed to take away different contaminants. The performance of filters is measured by the minimum particle size that may be blocked, the share of particles or microorganisms which can be got rid of, the downstream concentration of unwanted chemicals, the utmost drift rate, and the volume of water that may be filtered before the filter should be replaced. Water filters are utilized in quite a lot of applications, including drinking water purification, swimming pools, industrial processes, and irrigation, among others.
Pentair manufactures industrial, commercial, and residential water filtration components and systems. The corporate, founded in 1966 and headquartered in Minneapolis, MN, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards 9001 and 14001 for quality assurance.
