    Clear Oil-Free Water for The Whole House

    The FI-OIL20-BB cartridge is designed to provide an easy and effective method of removing dissolved and dispersed oil in water. This cartridge has been specifically developed and manufactured for the high efficiency removal of dissolved & dispersed oils from water within the gas & oil production industries, marine bilge and ballast water treatment systems, contaminated surface water run off & other industrial process industries. The FI-Oil20-BB, made from modified cellulose-based filter media, is processed into sheets and assembled into cartridges for use in standard 20" Big Blue filter housing. It typically reduces hydrocarbon containment up to 90-95 percent in a single pass. It adds no harmful chemicals to the water, making it completely safe for water using applications.

    Oil adsorbing cartridge can be used for

    • Gas and oil facilities
    • Leisure/commercial shipping bilge water
    • Surface water runoff (truck stops, airports, parking lots)
    • Auto service stations
    • Machine shops
    • Industrial processes
    • Factories and repair shops
    • Car and truck washes
Performance & Specification

    Cartridge Performance

    For hydrocarbon-absorbing capacity: The cartridge media has the potential to remove up to 2270 grams (5 lbs.) hydrocarbon contaminant. On this basis, the table below provides data on expected life in hours or gallons at several contaminant levels based on a 10 gpm flow rate per 4.5" x 20" cartridge.

    Hydrocarbon Concentration(PPM)
    (% by weight)
    Hydrocarbon Removal per Minute(grams) Estimate Life in Hours Gallons Fluid Treated Estimated Cost per Gallon of Treated Fluid
    10 0.001 0.036 106 63,308 0.001
    100 0.01 0.36 10.6 6,330 0.01
    1000 0.1 3.6 1.1 633 0.11

    This oil adsorbing cartridge typically reduces hydrocarbon containment up to 90-95 percent in a single pass. Lower outlet levels of hydrocarbons can be achieved by connecting cartridges in a series. Higher flow rates also can be achieved by connecting cartridges parallel to each other. Certain applications may require pre-filtration.

    Change-Out Frequency:
    Change-out frequency will depend on the oil burden customers have to handle. Because no appreciable increase in pressure drop is observed during service life, the filter must be changed when its adsorption capacity is exhausted.
