Features and Benefits:
The 3M™ Water Filtration Product Model P165BN single cartridge water filter helps provide consistent high quality water for espresso and espresso based drinks at flow rates up to 3.8 lpm (1.0 gpm). A high capacity weak acid ion-exchange resin reduces calcium and magnesium ions to help prevent hard scale formation on heating coils and boilers resulting in energy inefficiency, downtime and expensive service calls. Inlet water TDS and alkalinity are also reduced. Premium activated carbon reduces chlorine taste and odour and bitterness associated with poor water quality. A built-in bypass direct 75% of the inlet water through the media.
The P165BN has a capacity of 2,722 litres (719 gallons) for inlet water with 150 ppm (9 gpg) hardness and even an increased lifetime and capacity from a built-in bypass that allows 25% of inlet water to pass through untreated. Sanitary Quick Change (SQC) encapsulated cartridge design allows for fast and easy cartridge change-outs with a 1/4 turn.
