3M’s filter portfolio 3M has revealed that its Reverse Osmosis (RO) filtration system and high capacity anti-scale filter will spearhead its offering at Hotelympia next month.
The company claims its products protect professional catering equipment from expensive scale build up caused by hard water, which in turn helps to reduce product downtime and service costs.
3M’s ScaleGard LP2-BL (SGLP2) Dual Port Reverse Osmosis System is a compact, wall-mounted unit designed to deliver great tasting filtered water every time.
The system provides two water qualities for specialty coffee and flash steam applications, which means that only one filtration is required for all the back-of-house catering equipment typically found in a professional kitchen, including steamers, combi ovens, ice machines, bulk coffee brewers and espresso machines.
Using twin RO membranes, the system purifies mains water, removing solids and minerals that can cause limescale and corrosion problems typically associated with flash steamers, thereby helping to minimise equipment downtime and servicing costs.
Also, as a non-electric system, with filtration driven by incoming water pressure, the system offers high reliability with low ownership costs, immunity to power outage and enhances energy efficiency.
The ScaleGard Pro (SGP) P1175 anti-scale filter, meanwhile, provides a capacity of 6,000 litres, which increases convenience for owners and reduces equipment downtime by extending the filter change-out interval.
The filter matches the high level of filtration achieved by other SGP filters to ensure effective removal of scale-forming minerals. It also features 3M’s SQC cartridge attachment.
