Pentek CBC-10 carbon filter cartridge is 9 3/4” x 2 7/8” in size.It highly reduces fine sediment, bad taste and odor, and chlorine taste & odor from potable drinking water. It has a nominal (85%) filtration rating of 0.5 micron, and 99.95% efficiency for the reduction of protozoan cysts. It will reduce free available chlorine (FAC) at 2 parts per million (ppm) by at least 90% in up to 20,000 gallons at a flow rate of 2 gallons per minute (gpm). This cartridge is made of bonded powdered activated carbon (PAC) filter media wrapped in polyolefin with polyethylene outer netting. The nitrile butadiene rubber (Buna-N) gaskets seal the cartridge against the housing (sold separately). This unique structure of the carbon block enables it to reduce Giardia, Cryptosporidium, Entamoeba, and Toxoplasma cysts and fine sediment particles down to 0.5 microns. The cartridge has an initial pressure drop of 3.7 pounds per square inch (psi) at a flow rate of 2 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 42 for quality assurance, and is for purification of residential and commercial drinking water.
Pentek CBC-10 cartridges are manufactured using a patented process and made entirely from FDA-compliant materials. They are an ideal choice for a wide range of residential, food service, commercial and industrial applications. They also make excellent polishing filters or pre-filters in applications requiring fine filtration and high capacity.
