Pentek, Pentair 10 Inch Polypropylene / Polycarbonate Filter Housing

Product Information

Pentek, Pentair 10" Polypropylene / Polycarbonate Filter Housing

A quality Particulate filter, suitable for a wide range of liquids, subject to chemical compatibility with its component parts.

This filter has a clear Polycarbonate bowl so that the condition of the filter can be easily monitored, however it is worth noting that the clear bowl will succumb to the agressive nature of Biodiesel, leading to splitting / cracking, and so unless transparency is of great importance, we always recommend for Biodiesel applications, a Polypropylene Bowled Filter, which can be found HERE


This filter should only be fitted with BSP Parallel male fittings, not BSP taper, suitable Hose Tails in BSP Parallel male can be found HERE

SEAL MATERIAL - This filter is supplied as standard with a NITRILE (Also known as BUNA-N or NBR) Top seal, this is the same material supplied with all other manufacturers filters of this type as they are designed for Water. If you intend to use the filter with Vegetable Oil or Bio Diesel, the Nitrile seal will swell and then become useless, it is therefore essential that a spare seal in VITON is purchased to replace the original seal. Viton seals are available in the product options below

PRESSURE FILTER - This is a pressure filter, it is designed to be fitted downstream of a pump of in a pressurised line, if it is fitted in a vacuum situation the red pressure-release button on the top will be drawn downward by the suction and will draw air into the system

When replacing elements in filter housings with screw-on bowls we always recommend the use of Silicon O Ring Grease to aid tightening of the bowl, preventing pinching & scuffing and thus prolonging the life of the O Ring
