The Pentek ECP5-20BB is a 5-micron pleated cellulose/polyester sediment filter that is used for removing sediment from water. The ECP5-20BB offers an excellent combination of price and performance. The pleated design maximizes surface area resulting in high flow rates and very low pressure drop. The ECP5-20BB also offers very good dirt holding capacity at this price point. The combination of cellulose and polyester gives this filter good rigidity and bacterial resistance versus a cellulose only cartridge.
More about the Pentek ECP5-20BB Cartridge:
The Pentek ECP5-20BB cartridge is manufactured from a special formulation of resin-impregnated cellulose and polyester fibers. The unique blend of these two materials provides a higher wet strength than regular cellulose cartridges. It also provides high flow rates and dirt- holding capacity, while maintaining extremely low pressure drop. The filter media of the ECP5-20BB is pleated around a polypropylene core for added strength and the ends are immersed in a thermo-setting vinyl plastisol. Embedding and sealing each end of the pleat block in this fashion fuses the components together forming a unified endcap and gasket.
