Pentek R30-20 Polyester Sediment Filter Video Transcript

Hey everyone, Tony the Filter Doctor here. Today we’re looking at the Pentek R30-20. Now, the R30-20 is an industry standard size filter cartridge, approximately 20 inches in length by 2 ½ inches in diameter, this means it will fit into a vast selection of industry standard size filter housings, like for example the one that you see here.

Now, the R30-20 is a 30 micron, pleated polyester sediment filter. It features an external netted sheath that I’ll zoom in here in a moment to show you more closely. That netted sheath keeps the pleats nice and straight. You see, if pleats become scrunched together you lose flow and it causes pressure loss. You won’t have that problem with the R30. It is also manufactured from polyester media which makes it perfect for untreated water sources because it is bacteriostatic, meaning microorganisms cannot live and grow on this filter media. And polyester is also highly resistant to chemical attack, making this an excellent choice for commercial and industrial applications.

Now, perhaps the greatest feature of the R30-20 is the reusability factor. Because the polyester is so durable, you can wash and reuse this cartridge three to five times. Simply remove it from the filter housing and under running water, no need to use the pressure washer, under running water simply rinse it off, then reinstall and you’re back in business. Again, this is the R30-20 from Pentek, an industry standard size pleated polyester sediment filter. I’m your host Tony the Filter Doctor. Thanks for watching.
