Pentek ECP5-BB Filter Advantages

The Pentek ECP5-BB water filter cartridge has a special formulation of resin-impregnated cellulose and polyester fibers. The Pentek ECP5-BB water filters provide higher wet strength than regular cellulose cartridges. This water filter also provides high flow rates and dirt-holding capacity, while maintaining extremely low pressure drop. The Pentek ECP5-BB replacement filter cartridge has minimal unloading and media migration. The Pentek ECP5-BB water filter media is pleated around a polypropylene core for added strength and the ends are immersed in a thermosetting vinyl plastisol. Embedding and sealing each end of the pleat block in this fashion fuses the components together, forming a united end cap and gasket. The ECP water filter cartridges contain more media surface area than most competitive cartridges. The 10-inch Big Blue ECP cartridges contain 18 square feet of media. Nominal 5 micron Pentek ECP5-BB pleated cellulose polyester water filter cartridge.

Pleated Filter Media

The Pentek ECP5-BB uses pleated filter design to maximize contaminant exposure to filter media. More time along the media allows for higher capture and retention of unwanted contaminants. This also allows for greater amounts of larger particles of sediment and sand to collect within the pleats of the filter. This pleated design enhances structural stability and helps increase the performance of the filter.
