The Pentek CEP-10 filter uses a carbon block filter inside of an acid-washed coconut shell to reduce your water of fine sediment and the taste and odor of chlorine (based on manufacturer's internal testing).
Coconut-based carbon block cartridges such as this one have a high capacity for reducing unwanted tastes and odors from water, which makes them ideal choices for many residential, industrial or foodservice applications. In addition to reducing the taste and odor of chlorine, this filter also effectively reduces sediment, and as such is often used as a pre- or post-filter in reverse osmosis installations.
Unlike many carbon block cartridges, the Pentek CEP-10E resists plugging due to its highly porous design and thin Endurawrap prefilter.
The filter's endcaps are made of polypropylene, the outer wrap of polyolefin, and the netting of polyethylene. The cartridge also features a Buna-N gasket. Also known as part numbers 155714-43, 15571443 and 155714.
