Description

This Pentek 158002 3/8″ #5 Slim Line blue filter housing with pressure relief is suitable for low drift rate applications that have space restrictions. The sump and cap are made of reinforced polypropylene for strength and resistance to chemicals. The cap has 1/4″ female National Pipe Thread Taper (NPT) threaded input and output connections and a nitrile butadiene rubber (Buna-N) O-ring to make sure a watertight seal. A pressure relief button on the inlet side of the cap releases pressure in the housing for changing filter cartridges. The housing can be utilized with a 5″ x 2-1/2″ sediment or carbon filter cartridge (sold one by one). It has an initial pressure drop of 2 pounds per square inch (psi) at a drift rate of 3 gallons per minute (gpm), a maximum operating pressure of 125 psi, and a maximum operating temperature of 125 degrees F (51.7 degrees C). This filter housing meets Food and Drug Administration (FDA) standards, and is for use in more than a few applications, including residential drinking water filtration, food service, and humidifying systems, among others.

Water filters remove undesirable particles, chemicals, and microorganisms from water by the use 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 generally 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 drift rate, and the amount of water that may be filtered before the filter should be replaced. Water filters are used in quite a lot of applications, including drinking water purification, swimming pools, industrial processes, and irrigation, among others.

Pentair manufactures industrial, commercial, and residential water filtration components and systems. The company, founded in 1966 and headquartered in Minneapolis, MN, meets International Organization for Standardization (ISO) standards 9001 and 14001 for quality assurance.
