Pentek HT-20 Hight Temperature Water Filter Video Transcript

Hey everyone, Aquaman here with Water Wisdom sponsored by WaterFilters.NET. Today’s product is the HT-20. This is a 20 inch whole house high temperature water filter. Obviously designed for your hot water line and designed for a situation that requires greater flow. There is a smaller version of this the HT-10. This is for whole house applications or applications that require greater flow, because it receives these large 20 inch long 2.5 inch diameter cartridges.

Obviously a filter housing like this will require high temperature cartridges. This is a ten micron polypropylene string wound sediment cartridge good to 165 degrees F and this is a 10 micron carbon block, the EPM-20 good to 180 degrees. That’s going to be for taste and odor improvement. There are a number of applications that can utilize these high temperature housings. You might have an outdoor hot water heater that pumps hot water through pipes into the home, you might have a boiler that is precipitating mineral content and you want to capture that precipitate with a filter. You might have a hardness problem that maybe you can’t use a water softener, or you don’t want to, and it’s precipitating minerals in the form of little granules in your water, in your hot water heater, and so you put this post water heater to capture those things. Any number of applications that require a high temperature housing, but don’t try and use a regular filter housing on a high temperature line. It will deteriorate it rapidly and possibly burst it and cause a flood. Obviously that would be pretty bad. So this is the HT-20 made of a special material. Good to well beyond 160 degrees Fahrenheit. It has ¾ inch female pipe thread inlet/outlets, and it utilizes a special non-rubber silicone O-ring. There’s that O-ring. And this is a special high temperature silicone based O-ring, and you lubricate that with the same lubricant as the regular temperature O-rings, the food grade silicone grease. That is the HT-20. I’m your host Aquaman and thanks for watching.
