Pentek EP Series cartridges have nominal 5-micron rating and a greater chlorine taste & odor reduction capacity than competitive 10-micron carbon blocks. The high dirt-holding capacity maximizes utilization of the carbon block. EP Series cartridges are versatile and combine the long life of carbon block filtration with the higher dirt-holding capacity of wound, carbon-impregnated paper cartridges.
EP Series cartridges are manufactured using a patented process that yields a cartridge with a nomial 5-micron filtration rating, high dirt-holding capacity and greater chlorine taste & odor reduction capacity than competitive 10-micron carbon blocks. A high porosity design helps prevent the cartridge from plugging before its adsorption capacity is exhausted, maximizing the utilization of the carbon while maintaining low pressure drop.
