Pentek PD-50-934 Video Transcript

Hey everyone, Aquaman here with Today we’re looking at the Pentek PD-50-934. This is an industry standard size cartridge, approximately 10 inches long by 2 ½ inches in diameter, which means it’s going to fit into a vast array of industry standard size filter housings, like for example, the popular Pentek 158642 that you see here.

Now the PD-50-934 is a 50 micron, thermally bonded polypropylene. And that thermally bonding is important because it creates a more durable cartridge, particularly with regard to the high temperature application. You see, the standard P series of filters from Pentek are only good up to 145 degrees Fahrenheit, but the PD series, the Polydepth series, of which this is a member, are good up to 175 degrees Fahrenheit, making it a great choice for industrial and commercial applications where hot water is commonly used. Now, the polypropylene is, of course, bacteriostatic, meaning microorganisms cannot live and grow on the media, so it’s a great choice for untreated water sources. And it’s also highly resistant to chemical attack, another good reason to use these in industrial and commercial applications.

Now, filter life is difficult to determine, because it’s going to depend on your unique circumstances. If you have a heavy load of sediment and you use a great deal of water, you’re going to go through cartridges much faster than someone who does not have a heavy load of sediment and is not using a great deal of water. You’re simply going to need to install the cartridge and learn from experience, how long they last or approximately how many gallons they’re good for. Again, this is the Pentek PD-50-934, and I’m your host Aquaman with Thanks for watching.
