GE Osmonics CTA-16 RO Membrane is a 12" x 2" standard residential replacement cartridge with a 16 gallons per day capacity of pure drinking water. The Pentek GE Osmonics CTA-16 RO replacement water filter membrane reduces lead, mercury, chromium, nitrates and many other pollutants and contaminants. This CTA(Cellulose Tri-Acetate) membrane is made of cellulose acetate, which means it is chlorine resistant and will not wear out easily.
GE Osmonics Desal CTA-16 is manufactured with "Membrane-Separation Technology" which employs crossflow filtration where captured impurities on the membrane are constantly swept away by the concentrate stream. Crossflow filtration across the membrane then divides the flow into two outflow streams: the cleansed permeate feed and the concentrate or reject stream. This flow provides continuous cleaning that prolongs membrane life and reducing maintenance costs.
Membrane elements by GE are the brand of choice for most demanding applications. GE drinking water filters reduce many pollutants and contaminants with a premium membrane process that removes particles 100,000 smaller than human hair. The elements deliver outstanding performance and long-lasting operation.
