Pentek 255485-43 ECP Series Sediment Filters

ECP1-20 - 20" Standard 1 Micron Pleated Cellulose Polyester Water Filter Cartridge

Sediment Filters with Higher Wet Strength

Pentair® Pentek® ECP Series Cartridges are manufactured from a special formulation of resin-impregnated cellulose and polyester fibers. This unique blend of 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 media is pleated around a polypropylene core for added strength. The pleated end caps of the 255485-43 ECP1-20 filter cartridge are immersed in a thermo-setting vinyl plastisol.  The pleated ends are sealed to the endcap with a thermoplastic adhesive. The overlap seam is sonically welded to reduce internal bypass, improving filtration efficiency.

ECP Series Cartridge end caps feature a color-coding system for easy identification of micron ratings: - the 255485-43 ECP1-20 filter is 1 micron filtration rating and has a tan end cap.  ECP1-20 contains 12 ft2 of filtration media.

20" Standard filter actual dimensions are 2.63" Diamter x 20" Length, and fit single-cartridge housings with outside dimensions of approximately 4.5" OD x 23" height.

Benefits of Pentek Pleated Sediment Water Filtration Cartridges

  • Special formulation of resinimpregnated cellulose and polyester fibers
