The Pentek MG-10MCB water filter has absolute 0.15 micron particle retention for bacteria and protozoan cyst reduction. The Pentek MG-10MCB filter reduces 99.9999% of bacteria (> 6 Log) and 99.99% of cysts (> 4 Log). The Pentek MG-10MCB Membrane Filter has a double o-ring end cap for absolute sealing in American Plumber/Pentek Seal-Safe 3G filter housings. The Pentek MG-10MCB MicroGuard membrane filters provide reliable bacteria and protozoan cyst reduction for safer and cleaner drinking water without incorporating chemicals into the media or adding chemicals to the filtered water. The MicroGuard carbon block membrane cartridge, MG-10MCB, is uniquely designed with integral carbon block and sediment prefiltration for the reduction of chlorine taste and odor and for providing extended life of the internal membrane element. This cartridge has 2.5 times greater filtration surface area than some antimicrobial carbon blocks and operates at a higher flow rate with lower pressure drop. This makes the Pentek MG-10MCB ideal for Point-of-Use (POU) applications. The MicroGuard cartridges do not require USEPA registration and their effectiveness is not susceptible to common substances normally found in some waters, e.g., hydrogen sulfide (H2S), natural organic matter (NOM) and total dissolved solids (TDS). Recommended prefiltration for the Pentek MG-10MCB membrane-only cartridges: EP-10, CBC-10 or PD-1-934. Advantages of the Pentek Microguard technology: Removes bacteria, cysts and other particles down to 0.15 micron in size. Requires only normal water line pressure to operate. No electrical power required (except for accessory pump, if needed for pressure). Protects even with power outages or intermittent power. No waste water or brine/concentrate flushing. Retains natural mineral content of water. Protects against unexpected bacteria and cysts in the water system due to water main breaks, water treatment plant failure during floods and power outages. High surface area and high tolerance to plugging. Low pressure drop with high flow rate. Bacteria and cyst removal does not rely on chemicals. point-of-use Applications for the Pentek Microguard MG-10MCB Water Filter include undersink, separate tap, countertop, water for oral care, food preparation, hand washing, sanitary applications, laboratories, pharmaceutical, photography/film, offices, restaurants, and coffee makers.
