This Pentek 160168 BBFS-222 1" #20 Big Blue three-housing filter system is suitable for residential, commercial, and industrial applications. It consists of three polypropylene housings mounted in series on a white powder-coated carbon steel wall-mounting bracket. Each housing has a reinforced polypropylene cap with two 1" female National Pipe Thread Taper (NPT) threaded connections and a nitrile butadiene rubber (Buna-N) O-ring to ensure a watertight seal. A pressure-relief button on the inlet side relieves housing pressure during cartridge changes. Depending on the filter cartridges (sold separately) used, this system can provide filtration for residential drinking water purification, commercial deionization and coalescing, and industrial processes such as plating, organic reduction, and circulating baths. The system is rated for a maximum flow rate of 40 gallons per minute (gpm), a maximum pressure of 90 pounds per square inch (psi), and a maximum temperature of 100 degrees F (37.8 degrees C). This three-housing filtration system is for use in various applications such as residential water treatment, deionization, and purification of industrial process water, 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.
