Another compelling reason to employ water filters is equipment longevity. While the use of chloramine (a mixture of chlorine and ammonia) is not a new technology, more communities are using it due to EPA mandates set in 2012. Chloramine damages stainless steel, polyurethane, and rubber.
Water softeners (ion exchange), Phosphates, Chloramines and Reverse Osmosis all alter the water in some way by either adding or removing from the water’s components (minerals). Filtersorb SP3 does not add or remove any components of the water and prevents and eliminates scale through Nucleation Assisted Crystallization (NAC).
It is important to protect combi ovens to ensure food grade quality. Any chef or caterer will tell you how damaging untreated or non-properly treated water can be particularly to equipment requiring this high level of steam. A combi oven can succumb to scale and corrosion within a matter of months depending on the frequency and usage. In most cases the reason why corrosion is occurring is the use of water softener (ion exchange) technology, scale inhibitors (phosphates), and RO systems due to the drastic change in the pH.

Only the special filters with NAC technology were used (NO LIME DE-SCALER).
From Alto-Shaam Operator’s manual
None of the cleaning supplies or instructions address the issue of oxidation or scale build-up due to high temperatures.
An industry standard to maintain and clean ice machines is to use acid. Using acid is highly corrosive to the seals and gaskets within the equipment and eventually cause damage and leakage. Why not use our Special filter’s green technology, that stops new scale and eliminates existing scale over time? Saves money not only on replacement parts but labor on routine maintenance. We guarantee it.
Did you know that 70% of ice machine service calls are due to water-related problems?
