The Pentair® Pentek® SGAC Cartridge contains silver-impregnated carbon treated to inhibit biofilm and microbial build-up in the filter that can decrease product life.
The construction of the SGAC Cartridge by Pentek allows water to enter at one end and pass through the entire length of the carbon bed before exiting the other end of the cartridge. An internal expansion pad minimizes channeling or bypass. This design allows for maximum contact between the water and carbon, ensuring maximum adsorption.
Before the water exits the cartridge, a 20-micron post-filter helps remove carbon fines and other suspended particles from the filtered water. The post-filter is permanently fastened to an innovative support basket, ensuring that it is firmly secured, and eliminates any potential for bypass.
