In applications where oil and other hydrocarbons are present in a water supply, it is especially beneficial to make use of a filter designed especially for this purpose. Oil adsorbing cartridges are made either of activated carbon or, more recently, modified cellulose media, which is extremely effective in reducing levels of hydrocarbons in a water supply, leaving it markedly cleaner, and better-suited for a number of applications.
Pentek’s approach to oil adsorbing utilizes a proprietary modified cellulose media technology to effectively reduce hydrocarbon levels by 95% in a single filtration pass. Moreover, these filters are capable of eliminating dissolved and dispersed oils. Filter Pure Systems, Inc., is proud to carry Pentek’s oil adsorbing cartridges and related products.
