BEST WATER FILTRATION SYSTEM FOR COFFEE MACHINE:
Water is not simply H2O; it often includes varying amounts of different substances–dissolved minerals, chemicals, and sediment. The amount of each of these substances depends on your water source. Thus, the water that you use may have high or low amounts of any given substance.
Because of these inconsistencies, due to location, state requirements, and/or delivery method, it is extremely unlikely that your tap water is ideal for commercial settings. The reason for this is twofold: bad water affects both machine longevity and beverage flavor.
Just like everything in life, there is a balance. And although you can’t completely remove the effects of water on commercial equipment, you can greatly improve it. With a quality filtration system, your machine has the potential to live a much longer life with many fewer repairs at the same time, you can have a good quality of water to enhance the flavor of every cup of your coffee.
REVERSE OSMOSIS (RO), a process whereby water is slowly forced through a membrane to remove up to 95% of the total dissolved solids. The RO water is then sent to a tank (size depends on demand), where it is ready to be used, while the remaining minerals are discarded. RO treatment is especially necessary in situations where water quality is particularly terrible, unable to be modified by any of the treatment options above. And because RO removes nearly all of the TDS, treatment systems that utilize it must have a blending valve or mineral addition to attain water that is ideal for coffee. Water that is too pure for coffee can over-extract, leaving you with a bitter cup and a dry mouth.
(Stage 1) 5 Micron Sediment Filter: With only five micron rating. It is effective in removing dirt, rust and sand particles.
(Stage 2) Granular Activated Carbon Filter: It takes out 99% of the chlorine and organic chemicals. It provides enhanced reduction of taste, odor, and color.
(Stage 3) 1 Micron Sediment Filter: With only 1 micron rating, provides effective filtration to protect your membrane. It provides for improved membrane performance up to 95% of TDS rejection.
(Stage 4) Reverse Osmosis Membrane: A thin film composite (TFC) high quality membrane that processes 75 gallons per day. It removes the following hard water contaminants that may be present in your water: lead, cooper, barium, chromium, mercury, sodium, cadmium, fluoride, nitrite, nitrate, and selenium.
(Stage 5) Post Carbon filter: This carbon post filter removes objectionable tastes and odors to enhance the quality of your drinking water. We are using NSF approved post carbon to guarantee the taste of water.
(Stage 6) Post Mineral filter: This Mineral post filter mineralizes your drinking water. We are using NSF approved post Mineral/ Bio Ceramic filter to guarantee the taste of water.
