3M Purification 3M™ SGLP2™ Reverse Osmosis System Revive yourself... with refreshments made from 3M filtered water High quality water produces high quality drinks In the competitive foodservice industry, speciality coffee is a business-critical part of your operation where recipe inconsistencies, equipment down time and service calls all threaten customer satisfaction and profit margins. Customer loyalty is often formed by a consistently great cup of coffee, and when 98-99% of speciality coffee is water, the better the water, the better the cup of coffee. Map of mainland UK showing soft - hard water areas. Now you can have high quality water for consistently better-tasting coffee no matter where you are located. Drink quality will vary as a result of water inconsistencies from location to location. With a 3M™ SGLP2™ Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration System, you can save thousands of pounds a year on scale-related maintenance and equipment-replacement costs. Soft to moderately soft: 0 - 100 ppm* as calcium carbonate Medium to moderately hard: 100 - 200 ppm* as calcium carbonate Hard to very hard: above 200 ppm* as calcium carbonate *parts per million Why is hard water a problem? When water is heated or converted to steam, it leaves impurities behind, such as hardness minerals. These impurities cling to the solid surfaces they come in contact with, and over time, can build up and cause problems: • Unsightly hard scale build-up • Increased operating costs for de-scaling and maintenance • Increased downtime • Inefficient operation causing higher energy costs With the 3M™ SGLP2™ System the difference is clear... Scale causes equipment down time, reduces efficiency and affects both water level and temperature controls. Just 3mm of scale = 25% energy loss! • Scale may cause inconsistent volumes and incorrect flavour profiles in coffee machines Untreated Water • Scale contaminated level indicators may cause overflow of the equipment • Scale will typically cause longer heating times and incorrect (lowered) temperatures • Service calls for scale problems may cost hundreds of pounds, including Without filtration, impurities in water can result in increased build up on the boiler surfaces causing increased maintenance and the possibility of reduced equipment life. travel, parts and labor With ScaleGARD Hardness minerals can build up within the milk, feed water pipes and boilers, thus increasing the probability of equipment downtime and the need for maintenance. The SGLP2 Reverse Osmosis Water Filtration System helps keep equipment cleaner, thus reducing maintenance costs and downtime. How Does the SGLP2 Reverse Osmosis System Work? The heart of the SGLP2 system is a state-of-the-art high-production Reverse Osmosis (RO) membrane (see illustration). Raw water, under pressure, is forced through microscopic pores in the synthetic membrane while larger dissolved solids (ions) and heavy molecular weight contaminants are continually flushed away as reject water. Filtered water travels between the double-sided membrane until it reaches a center core, which then delivers the product water to the equipment or storage tanks. Minerals may be added into the water for recipe-quality taste while straight RO water can be fed to a steamer oven.
