Pentek FloPlus-10BB Cyst Reduction Carbon Filter Video Transcript
Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today weíre looking at the Pentek FloPlus-10BB.
This is an industry standard size cartridge, approximately 10 inches long by 4 Ĺ inches in diameter, which means itís going to fit into a vast array of industry standard size filter housings, like for example, the popular Pentek HD-950 that you see here.
Now, the FloPlus-10BB is a 0.5 micron Fiberdyne carbon filter. Fiberdyne is Pentekís latest technology that allows for tighter porosity without sacrificing pressure loss and flow restriction. You see, this cartridge has the equivalent flow rate of a 10 micron filter but the porosity of 0.5 microns. So itís extremely tight and capable of capturing extremely fine sediment, and according to Pentek internal testing, 99.95% of microbial cysts like cryptosporidium and giardia.
Itís also capable of withstanding very high temperatures; up to 180 degrees Fahrenheit. So it is appropriate for certain industrial and commercial applications.
Now, filter life is difficult to estimate, but if youíre just simply filtering for chlorine, you can expect approximately 25,000 gallons of filter life. Now, I strongly recommend that you pre-filter before this cartridge, otherwise large sediment particles will tend to clog the filter long before the carbon is truly exhausted.
Again, this is the Pentek FloPlus-10BB, a 0.5 micron, Fiberdyne carbon filter, and Iím your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com.
Hereís to safe drinking water you can trust.
