Chlorine and Chloramines:
Protecting our Water
Since the 1800’s, advancements in the disinfection of
drinking water have steadily improved public health by
lowering the rates of infectious diseases spread through
untreated water. In the United States, the Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) requires that water utilities
throughout the U.S. adhere to stringent regulations for
drinking water to protect the public from disease-causing
microorganisms.
Chlorine is the most common disinfectant used in
municipal water supplies, a very effective, low-cost agent
for quickly killing potentially harmful waterborne bacteria,
viruses and organisms.
At the same time however, chlorine has several
disadvantages. On the one hand, it’s a relatively unstable
element that dissipates quickly in water. As a result,
chlorine may lose its disinfection properties at the far ends
of long municipal pipe runs. More significantly, it can react
with certain organic materials in water to form byproducts
such as trihalomethanes (THM’s), which have been linked
to an increased risk of cancer.1
It is estimated that THM’s in drinking water are responsible for as many as 17%
of diagnosed bladder cancers each year in the U.S.

What are Chloramines?
To address these disadvantages, municipal water supplies
have replaced chlorine with chloramines.
The EPA has determined that chloramines
are a practical and effective disinfectant.
Chloramines is an inorganic compound created by adding
small amounts of ammonia to chlorine. The resulting
compound is chemically more stable than chlorine, which
means it dissipates far less quickly and thus ensures better
disinfection, particularly as water sits or travels through
long runs of municipal water pipes from treatment plants
to consumers. In addition, because the compound does not
bond readily with organic materials, its usage is increasing
to meet new and stricter EPA guidelines regarding levels of
THM’s and other potentially harmful byproducts in water
supplies.
How do I know if chloramines are in
the water?
Though not required by law, municipalities typically supply
this information over the phone, online or in literature. 3M
has water test kits that can be used for testing your water.

A major disadvantage of chloramines is taste and odor. This problem affects both
hot and cold beverages: coffee and espresso may taste sour; carbonated drinks,
especially diet beverages, may become bitter and flat. Consumers notice the
difference, and it can affect repeat business and healthier profits.
The use of chloramines
is not new.
Additionally, new dispensing technologies are changing the industry. From
In fact, chloramines have been
super-concentrated syrups to computerized dispensing, they are revolutionizing
traditional fountain offerings. With their increasing sophistication and complexity,
however, they are raising the bar on the need for post-mix dispensing filtration
options that satisfy the need to eliminate
chloramines.
Typical water treatment technologies are
ineffective for reducing chloramines. And
while simple carbon filters reduce chlorine,
standard water filtration systems do not reduce
chloramines. 3M, however, offers a variety of
filtration systems that do.
employed by water utilities for
nearly 90 years. In the U.S.,
chloramines are used in nearly
30% of all water utilities.
Their use is expected
to increase due to the
implementation of the EPA’s
stricter Stage 2 Disinfection
and Disinfection By-Products
(D/DBP2) Standards by
July, 2014.

reduction for the foodservice industry
from 3M, a world leader in innovative
technology for a changing world.
3M Solutions
3M offers a variety of filtration systems to fit the needs of
foodservice operators. For example, 3M has designed both
cyst and high-capacity filtration systems for customers
depending on their level of need for chloramines reduction.
Modular manifold design means additional heads can be
added so that the system can grow as needed. Regardless of
the chloramines reduction system option you choose, you

Integrated Membrane and Pre-Activated
Carbon Technology (“I.M.P.A.C.T.”)
a 3M Technology
“IMPACT”
Carbon Technology
Integrated Membrane
Pre-Activated
By using premium state-of-the-art catalytic carbon in a carbon-block formulation,
research scientists at 3M have developed an extremely efficient and effective method
for reducing chloramines from drinking water. We call this technology Integrated
Membrane and Pre-Activated Carbon Technology (“I.M.P.A.C.T.”).
Because of this technology chloramines reduction cartridges effectively reduce:
• Chloramines
• Cryptosporidium and giardia cysts
• Bacteria
• Sediment, silt and ferric iron
• Chlorine taste and odor
Integrated Membrane and Pre-Activated Carbon Technology
(“I.M.P.A.C.T.”) systems are NSF certified, and feature sanitary
quick change (SQC) cartridges for fast and easy cartridge
change-outs.
Integrated Membrane and Pre-Activated Carbon Technology (“I.M.P.A.C.T.”) media
combines a pharmaceutical-grade microporous membrane and a pre-activated carbon
block in a single cartridge to dramatically reduce pressure drop and practically eliminate
the need for pre-filtration. The integrated membrane provides superior sediment-holding
capabilities while reducing cryptosporidium and giardia cysts, and over 99.99 percent of
waterborne bacteria1. The carbon block releases virtually no carbon fines. Pre-activation
of the carbon media is not required.
• Lower pressure drop
• Higher dirt-load capacity
• Better bacteria reduction
Two-Zone Membrane
Large particles are captured in the top zone and smaller particles in the bottom zone of
the graded density microporous nylon membrane, providing superior cartridge sedimentholding capacity.

Three separate filtration streams tailored to provide Recipe Quality Water™
to ice, cold beverages and coffee.
1 The first water stream supplies ice machines and is filtered to reduce sediment, cyst and bacteria,
providing the ice machine with chlorinated water for biofilm control. It also includes a scaleinhibition media to reduce hard-scale buildup on the evaporator plate.
2. The second water stream supplies cold-beverage applications and is filtered for reduced
sediment, chloramines, chlorine taste and odor, cyst and bacteria, and carries no scale-inhibition
media.
3. The third water stream supplies coffee brewers and reduces sediment, chloramines, chlorine
taste and odor, cyst and bacteria. A proportionately dosed scale-inhibition media is added from a
dedicated HF8-S cartridge to reduce the ability of calcium and magnesium to precipitate as hard
scale on the heating coils of a coffee brewer.
