- 2.5" x 10" Purtrex Depth Sediment Filters - GE Water Technologies
Most sediment filters in aquarium RO systems are inexpensive surface filters that quickly lose their effectiveness when the surface becomes clogged. Purtrex Depth Sediment filters are true graded density filters that capture larger particles at the surface and smaller particles towards the center. This means the Purtrex Depth Sediment Filter will trap particles throughout the entire thickness of the filter.
- 0.6 or 5 Micron nominal filtration
- Fits all standard 10" RO units
- True Graded Density
- We recommend changing sediment filters when they visually become dirty or a noticeable drop in pressure is noticed.
Many cartridges claim to be depth filters. But to be a true depth filter, a cartridge must be able to retain contaminants throughout the entire cross section of the filter.
A graded density allows larger particles to be trapped near the surface while smaller particles penetrate the larger open areas to be trapped nearer the center of the filter in the smaller openings. Without graded density, a so-called "depth" filter will operate in practice only as a surface filter. The Purtrex filter has the graded density that is required to be a real depth filter.
The Purtrex depth filter is an exceptional value for general applications where long life, high purity and low change-out frequency are required. Produced through GE Osmonics patented melt blown micro fiber technology, Purtrex is a 100% pure polypropylene depth filter with exceptional dirt-holding capacity. Purtrex true-graded density filter matrix (lower density at the surface of the filter with progressively higher density toward the center) captures particles throughout the entire filter depth. This translates to longer life and fewer change-outs than existing string-wound or resin-bonded filters.
Purtrex contains no wetting agents, solvents, anti static agents or binders, and meets the requirements of the FDA for food and beverage contact. The filter incinerates to trace ash for easy disposal.
Great By Kyle on 9/22/2019Kyle would recommend this product to a friendI use this in my ro system and I use this in a reactor to filter freshly mix salt water before it goes in my tank. I have also use it On my tank by running it on a maxi jet it get the water crystal clear after blowing of my rocks.
Quality By Joemama on 7/4/2018Joemama would recommend this product to a friendVery good quality for the money!!
Works great By Paul on 3/16/2018Paul would recommend this product to a friendGreat price, works well
Great Product By Kevin on 3/7/2018Kevin would recommend this product to a friendOn well water so i have alot of sediment in my water. The 5 micron sediment filter works well as a prefilter for my 1 micron sediment filter.
Great Product By JFunk on 3/5/2018JFunk would recommend this product to a friendWorks well in my RODI

great filter By paul on 6/28/2016paul would recommend this product to a friendit works well .affordable . all around good filter
What is the difference between the universal carbon cartridge and the CTO cartridge. Can the CTO be used for city water
What is the diameter of these filters? Will they fit older OMNI household RO filter systems?
Have a great day!
What's the difference between the 1 and 5 Microns?
The microns rating is how small of particles the filter will remove, so a 1 micron filter will remove particles larger then 1 micron. The 1 micron will technically remove a bit more sediment but in most circumstances that isn't a major benefit. The 5 micron is the better choice more often then not because it won't clog as fast.
