Cartridge Specifications and Performance Data
Maximum Initial ΔP (psi)
Model Dimensions @ Flow Rate (gpm)
PCC1 2-7/8" x 9-5/8" Up to 5 gpm
(73 mm x 244 mm) (19 L/min)
PCC106 1-1/16" x 5-7/16" 1 to 1.5 gpm
(27 mm x 138 mm) (4 to 6 L/min)
(for insertion in center core of open core cartridges)
PCC212 2-5/8" x 9-3/4" 1 to 1.5 gpm
(67 mm x 248 mm) (4 to 6 L/min)
PCC218 2-5/8" x 9-3/4" 1.5 to 2.5 gpm
(67 mm x 248 mm) (6 to 10 L/min)
SCALE: Hardness particles are kept separated so they cannot
precipitate and form deposits when heated. Maximum hardness
CORROSION: A protective coating is formed on all metal
surfaces, safeguarding against acidity/alkalinity, hardness,
chloride and other factors which effect the corrosion of water
equipment and pipes. pH range 6.5 – 9.0.
IRON: Dissolved iron, up to 1 ppm, is kept suspended in
solution (sequestered), preventing dissolved iron from
precipitating, which would cause staining and discoloration.
