This Pentek PCC-1 phosphate filter cartridge inhibits scale and rust buildup and prevents the precipitation of dissolved rust in residential and commercial applications. It is made of sodium calcium hexametaphosphate crystal media in a polypropylene shell with a polypropylene post-filter. The nitrile butadiene rubber (Buna-N) gaskets seal the cartridge against the housing (sold separately). The filter has a maximum flow rate of 5 gallons per minute (gpm), and operates over a temperature range of 40 to 100 degrees F (4.4 to 37.8 degrees C). This phosphate filter cartridge is used in various applications, including ice machines, food service equipment, and air conditioners, among others .

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.
