  • Ametek / Pentek EP-20 Water Filters:
  • Nominal 5 micron Pentek EP-20 Carbon-Briquette Water Filter Cartridges
  • Pentek EP-20 water filters produce healthier, better-tasting drinking water.
  • Pentek EP-20 filter cartridges high dirt-holding capacity maximizes utilization of the carbon block (based on manufacturer's internal testing).
  • The Pentek EP-20 water filter is highly effective at bad taste & odor and chlorine taste & odor reduction (based on manufacturer's internal testing).
  • Pentek EP-20 water filter cartridges are versatile and combine the long life of carbon block filtration with the higher dirt-holding capacity of wound, carbon-impregnated paper cartridges like the Pentek C1-20 water filter.
  • Ametek EP-20 cartridges are manufactured using a patented process. 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.
  • The Pentek EP-20 filter cartridges are protected by Endurawrap™, a uniquely formulated polyolefin bilaminate pre-filter, designed to significantly increase the useful life of the cartridge by trapping sediment that typically plugs carbon block cartridges.
  • Pentek EP20 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.
  • NOTE: Do not use with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after the system.
  • NOTE: Pentek EP-20 water filter cartridges will contain a very small amount of carbon fines (very fine black powder) and a new cartridge after installation should be flushed with sufficient water to remove all traces of the fines from your water system before using the water. Each time you use your filtered water tap for drinking or cooking purposes it is recommended that you run (flush) the tap for at least 20 seconds prior to using water.
  • NOTE: Micron ratings based on 85% or greater removal of given particle size.
