Spiral-Wound Activated Carbon Water Filter
• 5 μm Nominal Filtration
• High Chlorine Taste and Odor Reduction
• Efficient Sediment Filter with Large Dirt-Holding Capacity
• No Release of Carbon Fines
PLEKX® 10 filters provide previously unattainable performance at the lowest price point. PLEKX® 10 filters simultaneously remove chlorine taste and odor and organic chemicals that contribute to taste and odor while providing the
particulate filtration and dirt-holding capacity of an efficient 5 μm sediment filter. These filters are optimized for
applications where they perform the role of both a sediment and activated carbon filter.

KX®’s proprietary extrusion process allows the production of a carbon-particle laminate with more carbon than
conventional PAC spiral-wound filters. This enables the PLEKX® 10 filter to deliver extended life while removing
sediment, chlorine taste and odor and organic contaminants from water, aqueous solutions or suspensions.
The PLEKX® 10 is ideal for use in residential and commercial water purification systems, food service,
pre- and post-RO systems.
Standard filters are manufactured using a polypropylene spunbonded prefiltration medium. A protective polypropylene netting is applied to
the exterior of the cartridge. Elastomeric end caps that engage most standard industrial filter housings are standard. Inquire concerning
alternative filter finishing options, including alternative end cap and housing interface styles.
PLEKX® 10 filters consist of activated carbon particles fused into a uniform film and supported using light polypropylene non woven webs.
PLEKX® 10 filters flow in a radial (outside-to-inside) direction, providing increased dirt-holding capacity and low pressure drop. Unlike granular
activated carbon (GAC) filters, PLEKX® 10 cartridges will not channel or bypass due to the extreme uniformity of their extruded activated carbon
medium. Service life of the PLEKX® 10 filter is greatly extended by depth filtration through multiple layers of polypropylene spunbonded
filtration medium.
• No channeling
• No fluidizing
• No bypassing
• Eliminates release of carbon fines
• Lowest extractables, pure materials of construction
• Maximum service life and resistance to fouling
• Graded density prefiltration design
• Manufactured using FDA-compliant materials
IMPORTANT NOTICE: Performance claims are based on a complete system, including a filter,
housing, and connection to a pressurized water source. This filter must be placed in an
appropriate system, and operated according to the system’s specifications in order to deliver
the claimed performance. It is essential to follow operational, maintenance, and filter
replacement requirements, as directed for each application, for this filter and system to
perform correctly. Read the Manufacturer‘s Data Sheet accompanying the system and
change the filter as suggested. The contaminants or other substances removed or reduced by
this water filter are not necessarily in all users’ water.
1. Projected chlorine taste and odor reduction capacity when tested in accordance with NSF/ANSI Standard 42 protocol.
2. Nominal particulate rating (5 μm) is for >85% of a given size as determined from single-pass particle counting results.*
3. Absolute particulate rating (10 μm) is for >99.9% of particles of a given size as determined from single-pass particle counting results.**
Nominal Filter Rating: Filter rating indicating the approximate size particle, the majority of which will not pass through the filter. It is generally interpreted as meaning that 85% of the particles of the size equal to the nominal micron rating will be retained
by the filter. (WQA Glossary of Terms, Third Edition, 3-97).
** Absolute Filter Rating: Filter rating meaning that 99.9% (or essentially all) of the particles larger than a specific micron rating will be trapped on or within the filter. (WQA Glossary of Terms, Third Edition, 3-97).
Maximum Operating Temperature: 125°F
Maximum Operating Pressure: 250 psig

PLEKX 10 filters are not to be autoclaved or steam-sterilized. Use PLEKX 10 carbon filters only with microbiologically safe and adequately disinfected water. Activated carbon
filters are not designed to kill or remove bacteria or viruses. Actual results obtained will vary with various combinations of organic contaminants, changes in pH or other
conditions encountered in actual use. All information presented here is based on data believed to be reliable. It is offered for evaluation and verification, but is not to be
considered a warranty of any kind.
PLEKX® 10 filters are designed to fit most standard household and commercial or industrial housings. Contact KX Technologies LLC to check filter housing compatibility. This
cartridge must be placed in an appropriate housing and flushed for a minimum of 5 minutes prior to use.
