Pentek WP10BB97P String Wound Sediment Filter Video Transcript

Hey everyone, Aquaman here with FilterDoctor.com. Today we’re looking at the WP10BB97P. This is an industry standard size cartridge, approximately 10 inches long by 4 ½ inches in diameter, which means it’s going to fit into a whole host of industry standard size filter housings, like for example, the popular Pentek HD950 that you see here.

Now, the WP10BB97P is a 10 micron, polypropylene string wound sediment filter. It’s perfect for untreated water sources because it’s bacteriostatic and microorganisms cannot live and grow on this filter media. It’s also highly resistant to chemical attack, making it a great choice for commercial and industrial applications. However, those of you with commercial and industrial applications that require very low or absolute zero extractables; you need to look to the Pentek WPX Series of filters, because those have a fibrillated polypropylene, best suited to that unique circumstance. Those of you who are in that situation, probably know what I’m talking about. The rest of you will do fine with the regular WP Series. Now, these filters are good up to 165 degrees Fahrenheit, so if you have a high temperature application, you certainly can use this cartridge. However, you cannot use a regular filter housing, you’ll need a special high temperature filter housing. But if you have a high temp application, the WP Series of cartridges will work fine in those situations.

Determining filter life is really difficult, because it depends on your unique circumstances. If you have a heavy load of sediment and you use a great deal of water, you’re certainly going to go through these filters faster than someone who doesn’t have much sediment and doesn’t use that much water. You’ll simply need to install it and learn from experience approximately how long or how many gallons they’re good for. Now, this is a 10 micron filter; that’s about half the size of a speck of milled flour. So that still qualifies as really fine sediment, but if you have some extremely fine sediment you might use this as a pre-filter before a 1 micron or a 0.5 micron filter. Again, this is the WP10BB97P, a 10 micron, polypropylene string wound sediment filter, and I’m your host Aquaman with FilterDoctor.com. Thanks for watching.
