Carbon Cartridges – Standard Diameter
Carbon Block – General Purpose
The Carbon Block filter is an excellent economic solution for problem water containing Chlorine, Organic Colour, Taste, Odour and limited Sediment. The filter is manufactured from powdered carbon compressed and molded into a single block. This provides a solid structure which reduces cartridge collapse from pressure differential while in use.
The fine, external polypropylene wrap reduces sediment prior to the carbon which prevents premature fouling of the carbon. The radial flow design gives an even distribution of water over the entire filter surface reducing pressure drop and extending the cartridge life. Polypropylene end caps with compression gaskets are used to prevent by-pass. The filter fits most standard 10” and 20” housings.
Carbon Briquette – Cyst / Lead Reduction (PENTEK Brand)
The CBR2 cartridges is an advanced multimedia cartridge designed to reduce chlorine taste and odour, dissolved and particulate lead, cysts, MTBE and certain volatile organic chemicals (VOCs). The cartridge is manufactured using a patented process, and combines powdered activated carbon with a specially designed adsorbent medium for lead and mercury reduction.
In addition to lead reduction, the unique structure of the carbon block enables it to reduce Giardia, Cryptosporidium, Entamoeba and Toxoplasma cysts and fine sediment particles down to 0.5 micron. The filter is protected by Endurawrap TM , a polyolefin bilaminate prefilter to trap sediment for extended life of the filter. The filter fits most standard 10” and housings.
Carbon Briquette Cyst Reduction (PENTEK Brand)
The CBC Series cartridges are highly effective at reducing unwanted taste, odour and chlorine: taste and odour, from potable drinking water. The 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 CBC Series 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. The filter fits most standard 10” and 20” housings.
Carbon Briquette – General Purpose (PENTEK Brand)
The EPM Series cartridges are manufactured using a patented process that yields a cartridge with a nominal 10 micron filtration rating, high porosity and chlorine taste and odour reduction. The Endurawrap™ pre-filter and high porosity design helps prevent the cartridge from plugging before it’s adsorption capability is exhausted, maximizing the utilization of the carbon while maintaining low pressure drop.
The EPM Series cartridges are manufactured entirely from FDA-compliant materials making them an ideal choice for a wide range of residential, food service, commercial, and industrial applications. The filter fits most standard 10” and 20” housings.
Carbon Ceramikx E. Coli / Cyst Reduction (KX Industries Brand)
The “All Carbon” CERAMIKX® filter combines the fine particulate reduction of a traditional ceramic filter with the chlorine, taste and odour reduction of an activated carbon filter. With 0.2 micron filtration the filter will reduce more than 99% of E. coli, Giardia and Cryptosporidium cysts.
The CERAMIKX® filter is manufactured using MATRIKX® extruded activated carbon particles fused into a uniform block with enhanced adsorptive capacity and efficiency. The radial flow provides increased dirt capacity and low pressure drop. Unlike GAC filters the CERAMIKX® will not channel or by-pass due to their extruded activated carbon core. The filter fits most standard 10” housings.
Carbon GAC – Granular Activated Carbon
The GAC series cartridges are designed for effective reduction of unwanted Chlorine Taste and Odour and also Organic Colour, Taste and Odour. They are designed to allow maximum contact between the water and the carbon ensuring maximum adsorption.
The construction of the cartridge allows water to enter through a pre-filter pad at the bottom and pass through the entire length of the carbon bed before exiting the cartridge at the other end. Before exiting, the water passes through a post filter to reduce any carbon fines and other sediment particles from the filtered water. The filter fits most standard 10” and 20” housings.
Carbon NCP – Non Cellulose Pleated (PENTEK Brand)
The NCP series cartridges are constructed from a Carbon Impregnated Non-Cellulose media. They offer sediment filtration, as well as the reduction of unwanted taste and odour, and also chlorine taste and odour in the one cartridge. Unlike cellulose cartridges, NCP Series are resistant to bacterial attack allowing them to be used for municipal and non-chlorinated water applications.
Pleats provide additional surface area for high dirt loading capacity, while maintaining minimal pressure drop. The combination of a pleated polyester media and carbon filtration produces an outstanding filter cartridge with extended service life. The filter fits most standard 10” and 20” housings.
