The Fibredyne CFBC-20 water filter is a nominal 0.5 micron filter that reduces 99.95% of cryptosporidium and giardia cysts, has premium dirt-holding capacity and high chlorine taste & odor and bad taste and odor reduction. CFBC Series cartridges offer the effective chlorine taste and odor reduction found in traditional carbon block media while providing superior sediment reduction with resistance to premature plugging. CFBC filters are highly effective at reducing chlorine taste & odor, bad taste and odor, as well as some organic chemicals. CFBC Series products are modified molded blocks manufactured using Pentek's proprietary Fibredyne technology. This technology creates a unique filter media by attaching powdered activated carbon onto a cellulose-free synthetic fiber matrix. The result is a single cartridge that combines the benefits of both a sediment filter and a carbon block into a single cartridge. Benefits of this technology include low pressure drop over the entire life of the cartridge and up to three times the chlorine taste & odor and dirt-holding capacity of traditional 0.5 micron carbon blocks. The Fibredyne technology will not release fines into the effluent stream due to a unique post-filtration layer that is fused to the carbon/fiber media blend.

  1. Do not use with water filter with water that is microbiologically unsafe or of unknown quality without adequate disinfection before or after the system
  2. Performance capacity depends on system design, flow rate and certain other application conditions. Certain states require system registration or certification for health-related contaminant reduction claims
  3. Micron ratings based on 85% or greater removal of given particle size. Estimated capacity using 2ppm free available chlorine at 0.5 ppm breakthrough
  4. Cartridges will contain a very small amount of carbon fines (very fine black powder). After installation, a new cartridge should be flushed with sufficient water to remove all traces of fines prior to using the water
