Pentek CBC-BB Video Transcript

Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today we’re looking at the Pentek CBC-BB. This is a 0.5 micron extremely dense carbon block. It’s going to cause very high pressure loss and flow restriction so it’s not appropriate for whole house applications. It is an industry standard size, approximately 10 inches long by 4 ½ inches in diameter, which means it’s going to fit into many standard size filter housings. Now Pentek has internally tested this cartridge and certified it to reduce over 99% of microorganisms like giardia and cryptosporidium. So it’s a great choice if you need a polishing filter where you want microorganism protection. Now a carbon block like this that is so dense and tight will typically suffer from clogging before the carbon is truly exhausted. In order to stop that from happening, Pentek has wrapped this cartridge in this white outer wrap they call Endurawrap. It’s a polyolefin bi-laminate that simply captures the sediment on the outside, not allowing it to imbed in the carbon block and clog it before the carbon is truly exhausted. This cartridge is going to have an approximate filter life of 50,000 gallons for chlorine taste and odor reduction. But if you’re removing high level contaminants like microorganisms you need to cut that number way down to about 5,000 gallons. So again, this is the Pentek CBC-BB, and I’m your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com. Thanks for watching.
