PCF Series Mixed Bed Deionization Cartridges

PCF Filters
  • Designed for deionizing water up to 16 megohms
  • All materials and construction are FDA FDA-compliant
  • Three sizes and capacities

PCF Series filter cartridges have been developed in response to the requirements for deionized water in many industries.
They are manufactured using an FDA-compliant resin that has been subjected to additional post-production steps to minimize the total organic carbon (TOC) level.
These high-capacity, semi-conductor-grade resin cartridges are ideal for use in pharmaceutical and medical laboratories, cosmetics, and circuit board printing applications.
PCF Series cartridges are available in three sizes, flow rates and capacities. They are convenient and cost effective for many applications where low levels of total organic carbon (TOC) and total dissolved solids (TDS) are required.
