PENTEK Specialty Filter Cartridges

PENTEK Specialty Filter Cartridges

   Specialty Filter Cartridges can be used for a number of different applications ranging from scale and rust inhibitors to iron reduction and oil adsorption.

WS Series Water Softener Cartridges

WS Series Filter Cartridge is designed to allow optimal contact between water and resin surfaces, ensuring maximum ion exchange. The internal expansion pad minimizes channeling while the post filter eliminates any potential for bypass.

Designed for low water usage, these units will easily deliver softened product water through the use of FDA-grade sodium based, non-solvent rinsed softening resin. The cartridge style design provides a convenient solution for delivering softened water to protect sensitive water delivery equipment.

Features, Options & Benefits

• Manufactured with FDA grade softener resin
• Available in a variety of sizes for multiple applications
• Utilize single use resin technologies for maximum life grains (CaCo3) capacity
• Sodium form


MicroGuard™ Series Membrane Filter Cartridges

MicroGuard™ Membrane filter provide reliable bacteria and protozoan cyst reduction for safer and cleaner drinking water without incorporating chemicals into the media or adding chemicals to the filtered water. The MicroGuard carbon block membrane cartridge, MG-10MCB, is uniquely designed with integral carbon block and sediment pre-filtration for the reduction of chlorine taste and odor and for providing extended life of the internal membrane element. This cartridge has 2.5 times greater filtration surface area than some anti-microbial carbon blocks and operates at a higher flow rate with lower pressure drop. This makes the MG-10MCB ideal for Point of Use (POU) applications. The MicroGuard cartridges do not require USEPA registration and their effectiveness is not susceptible to common substances normally found in some water, e.g., hydrogen sulfide, natural organic matter (NOM) and total dissolved solids (TDS).

Features, Options, & Benefits

Absolute 0.15 micron particle retention for bacteria and protozoan cyst reduction

• 99.9999% bacteria reduction (>6 Log)
• 99.9999% cyst reduction (>6 Log)
• Combined carbon block and sediment pre-filtration for extended life and chlorine taste and odor   reduction
• Utilizes patented highly asymmetric polyethylene membrane with proprietary hydrophilic formulation for
• immediate wetting and high flow
• Double o-ring end cap seals for absolute sealing in PENTEK Seal-Safe™ 3G housing


PCC Series Hexametaphosphate Crystal Cartridges

PCC Series Filter cartridge contains food-grade hexametaphosphate that dissolve slowly in water to inhibit scale and rust build-up.

These cartridges are available in four feeder sizes with variable volumes of phosphate crystals. All materials are FDA grade.

They are effective for treating scale, corrosion and iron problems for up to six months at various flow rates and feed concentrations.

Features, Options & Benefits

• Hexametaphosphate crystals help prevent lime and scale deposits
• Effective for treating corrosion and iron problems
• Three unique designs to fit multiple applications
• Variety of media volumes and flow rates
• Manufactured with all FDA grade materials

RFFE20-BB Radial Flow Iron Reduction Cartridges

RFFE20-BB Filter cartridge is designed to provide an easy and effective method of reducing iron from water, which greatly improves the taste.

This cartridge helps to eliminate the orange and brown stains often found in sinks, toilets, tubs, and other plumbing fixtures. It also reduces the possibility of damage to pipes and water heaters and reduces up to 3 ppm dissolved iron. It adds no harmful chemicals to the water, making it completely safe for drinking water applications.

Features, Options, & Benefits

• Easily and effectively reduces up to 3 ppm of dissolved iron from water
• Improves flavor and reduces the metallic taste caused by iron
• Reduces the possibility of pipe and water heater damage
• For use in PENTEK® 20-inch Big Blue® filter housings


PCF Series Mixed Bed Di Ionization Cartridges

PCF Series Filter cartridge has been developed in response to the requirements for di Ionized water in many industries.

They are manufactured using an FDA-compliant resin that has been subjected to additional post-production steps to minimize the total organic carbon (TOC) level.

These high-capacity, semi-conductor-grade resin cartridges are ideal for use in pharmaceutical and medical laboratories, cosmetics and circuit board printing applications.

Features, Options & Benefits

• Designed for di Ionizing water up to 16 megohms
• All materials and construction are FDA-compliant
• Three sizes and capacities


OAC-20BB Oil Adsorbing Cartridges

OAC-20BB: Filter cartridge is made from modified cellulose-based filter media which is processed into sheets and assembled into cartridges for use in PENTEK 20-inch Big Blue filter housings.

Features, Options, & Benefits

Modified cellulose-based filter material chemically bonds specifically with hydrocarbons and      other pollutants such as dissolved and dispersed oils in water
• Instantaneous absorption, more effective than activated carbon
• Up to 90 percent of total hydrocarbons are removed in a single pass
• For use in 20-inch Big Blue® filter housings
• High flow rates
• Low-pressure drop
• Media can hold 250-300 percent of its own weight, with no release of removed hydrocarbons


BP, BPHE & BN Series Filter Bags

Polypropylene bags are compatible with a broad range of corrosive fluids including organic solvents, oils, acids, alkalies and micro-organisms.

BP Series (Polypropylene Felt) Bags - An assortment of filtration ratings is offered from 1 to 200 microns - to comply with any filtration requirement. The bags are manufactured from felt due to its high solids loading capabilities, in comparison to similar mesh fabrics. The media is created by needle-punching two layers of synthetic fibers together in a supporting scrim. A glazed finish, created by melting the outermost surface fibers, is used to produce a bond that reduces the possibility of migration.

BPHE Series (High Efficiency) Bags - High efficiency bags are offered for those critical applications when high efficiency combined with high dirt-holding capacity is required. Polypropylene materials are processed into microfibers with diameters of 1-10 microns or more. These fibers are converted into filter material. Microfiber media are covered with spun-bonded polypropylene.

BN Series (Strainer) Bags: Woven mono filament materials are offered in nylon with micron ratings of 50-800 and efficiencies from 75 to 95 percent. The materials are cleanable and reusable.

Features, Options & Benefits

• Thermally welded unique design results in consistent filtration efficiencies
• Semi-rigid cylindrical design is easily crushed and incinerated
• Higher productivity - faster bag "change-outs"
