Drinking water is comprised of various kinds of soluble or insoluble inorganic and organic
matters which vary regionally. Even drinking water of good quality contains elements
which can cause problems to machinery and affect the quality of food and drinks they
produce. The Claris filter systems integrated 5-stage filtration process avoids these
problems and helps your business run smoothly.
Stage 1)
Pre-filtration media at the entrance to the cartridge retains coarse
particles, such as sand or grit
Stage 2)
The ion-selective CLARIS medium reduces carbonate hardness
(alkalinity) while retaining other minerals needed for good drinks quality
Stage 3)
Fine filtration impacts the filter media and removes fine particles from
the water
Stage 4)
High efficient carbon block filter removes harmful contaminants and
unpleasant odors and tastes
Stage 5)
Solid membrane type filter removes particles down to 5 µm for
highest equipment protection
Cartridges replaced in seconds ‘twist off – twist on’
Air vent and flush directly at the filter head without any disconnection of tubes
Automatic inlet and outlet shut off valves for secure cartridge replacement
Pressure release valves automatically operated at filter cartridge replacement
Replacement of all gaskets between head to cartridge with every new cartridge
Flat cartridge connector allows replacement in limited space
(avoids movement of wall mounting brackets and torque on hose connectors)

DUOBLEND bypass valve technology
Thanks to the new patent pending DUOBLEND bypass valve technology the new CLARIS water filter system allows
a consistent and precise adjustment of carbonate hardness (alkalinity). The DuoBlend valve ensures highest
water and beverage quality while delivering effective protection of machine parts from lime scale deposits,
unaffected from pressure changes in the feed water supply and from flow rates of individual consumers.
In combination with the 5 stage filtration process, including a solid final 5 μm Carbon Block filter the CLARIS
system sets a new benchmark in the water filter market.
Protection for your machine – perfection for your customers
The precise combination of scale reduction, while retaining the required level of minerals needed for proper
flavor, is the secret to high quality, great tasting hot beverages and ensuring equipment protection at the same
time. Even more, the CLARIS water filter cartridges remove harmful contaminants, unwanted taste, color and
odors from the water and due to its solid Carbon Block filter your equipment is protected from small particles
even under pressure shocks. The CLARIS water filter systems offers your business many benefits: cost savings,
reduced ‘down time’ on equipment and happy and loyal customers.
