This Pentek CC-10 coconut carbon filter cartridge reduces chlorine taste and odor, methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE), certain volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and sediment in residential and commercial drinking water. It has a nominal (85%) filtration rating of 20 microns. It will reduce free available chlorine (FAC) at 2 parts per million (ppm) by at least 75% in up to 7500 gallons at a flow rate of 1 gallon per minute (gpm). The filter media is made of coconut shell based granular activated carbon (GAC) for greater VOC reduction than standard GAC. The media is enclosed in a polystyrene outer casing and end caps, and there is a spun propylene post-filter to reduce carbon fines and other suspended particles. The nitrile butadiene rubber (Buna-N) and Santoprene gaskets seal the cartridge against the housing (sold separately). The filter operates over a temperature range of 40 to 125 degrees F (4.4 to 51.7 degrees C). This filter cartridge meets National Sanitation Foundation/American National Standards Institute (NSF/ANSI) standard 42 for quality assurance, and is for purification of residential and commercial drinking water.

The nominal filtration rating is for a particle removal efficiency of 85%. Chlorine reduction capacity is the minimum total amount of water for which the free available chlorine (FAC) at a concentration of 2 ppm is reduced by at least 75%.
H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.
Water filters remove undesirable particles, chemicals, and microorganisms from water by means of a semipermeable barrier, adsorption, or biological processes. They are made of densely packed synthetic or natural fibers that trap suspended particles, materials that block microbes or adsorb unwanted chemicals, or substances that cause a chemical change, such as acid neutralization. For most residential, commercial, and industrial applications, water filters are manufactured in the form of replaceable cartridges that fit inside permanent housings. Filtration systems typically consist of a series of two or more types of filters, each designed to remove different contaminants. The performance of filters is measured by the minimum particle size that is blocked, the percentage of particles or microorganisms that are removed, the downstream concentration of unwanted chemicals, the maximum flow rate, and the amount of water that can be filtered before the filter must be replaced. Water filters are used in a wide range of applications, including drinking water purification, swimming pools, industrial processes, and irrigation, among others.
