Espresso

The two most certain things about espresso are that if you don’t get it right your customers will let you know and that the machines you use to make it are expensive. Even if your staff know how to make the perfect espresso, chlorine in your water can cause bitter tasting beverages and dissolved minerals in your water can form scale in your equipment and reduce service. Easy-to-install and maintain 3M™ Water Filtration solutions help reduce particles for better-tasting espresso and reduced equipment maintenance.

Ice

Ice may not be on your menu, but it impacts almost every one of your cold and blended beverage customer experiences. If it’s not crystal clear and odourless, it can quickly start to make a bad impression on your customers. Particulates and dissolved minerals in your water can cause scale buildup that can damage ice making machines.


You make an investment in expensive equipment to make the best cold or nitro brew, so it’s important to help ensure that your ice doesn’t impact that investment to make a great cold beverage. 3M™ Water Filtration solutions for ice applications provide built-in scale inhibition as well as chlorine taste and odour and particulate reduction. That means you can help ensure that your ice and iced beverages will taste great.

Combi Ovens

Ever wonder what you’d do if you lost your most versatile piece of kitchen equipment—your combi oven—to a mechanical breakdown? Hard water is especially problematic for combi ovens. When water is converted to steam, it leaves impurities behind. These impurities cling to the solid surfaces and can cause problems. Over time, you’ll notice hard scale build-up, increased operating costs and maintenance downtime.


3M™ Foodservice Water Filtration solutions can help reduce impurities, downtime for repairs and worry—so you can focus on your customers. When you take care of your water, your combi oven will take care of you.

Excess particulates can also cause maintenance issues and shorten the service life of expensive beverage machines.


Help ensure your beverages are as refreshing as your customers expect them to be with 3M™ Foodservice Water Filtration solutions. They feature Sanitary Quick Change design for fast and easy change outs and reduce excess particles to help reduce scale buildup in your cold beverage equipment.
