Pentek BBF1-20MB Deionizing Filter Video Transcript
Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today weíre looking at the Pentek BBF1-20MB.
Now this is an industry standard size cartridge, approximately twenty inches long by four and a half inches in diameter; diameter being the width.
This cartridge utilizes a twenty to forty mesh FDA approved semi- conductorgrade mixed bed DI resin. Itís designed to remove total dissolved solids and the resin is unique in that it goes through some special processing steps that will minimize total organic carbon output through this filter cartridge. Itís capable of deionizing water up to 16 megohms. It has an approximate capacity of 120,000 parts per million of total dissolved solids or about 1,850 grains.
Now itís designed for low flow applications because itís an axial flow cartridge which means water enters at the bottom and has to rise through the entire bed of media before it escapes at the top. That dramatically reduces the flow. Also it needs the contact time in order to reduce the total dissolved solids.
So it has a low flow, but thatís ok because itís designed for pharmaceutical and medical laboratories, the manufacturing of cosmetics and the manufacturing of electronic circuit boards or other high end electronics where you need a very high purity water but you donít need a great quantity of it.
So this is the Pentek BBF1-20MB, and Iím your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com.
