Pentek OAC PLUS-20BB Oil Adsorbing Filter Cartridge

The OAC Plus Oil Adsorbing Filter Cartridge removes high amounts of dissolved, dispersed and emulsified hydrocarbons from water. The proprietary filter media, which is made using Pentair Fibredyne technology, chemically bonds with hydrocarbons. The OAC Plus can provide up to 8 times the removal efficiency of granular activated carbon filter cartridges. Pentek OAC Plus Oil Adsorbing Filter Cartridge typically reduces hydrocarbon contamination up to 95% in a single pass. Lower outlet levels of hydrocarbons can be achieved by connecting cartridges in series.

Pentek OAC-20BB Oil Absorbing Filter cartrdige can be used with AMI Oil-Water Separator system option for watermaker pretreatment.
