When you use 3M™ Foodservice Water Filtration solutions to help reduce harmful particulates that may be in your water you reduce a lot of things that can hold you back. Things like reducing the chances of chloramine impacting the taste and appearance of the beverages you serve. Or reducing the odds that chlorine taste and odour give your ice an off-taste. Plus reducing the likelihood of harmful particles causing scale buildup in your expensive equipment and disrupting business with downtime for repairs—helping to ensure operational continuity. When you reduce the things that can negatively impact your business, you increase customer satisfaction, the longevity of your appliances and your bottom line.
3M filtration is trusted in restaurants around the world for performance, convenience and quality. Get efficient and effective solutions, easy-to-use and easy-to-maintain systems, and reliable results that maximize product consistency and operational continuity.
When it comes to hot beverages, even if you use the right grind and brew at the right temperature, you could still end up with bitter-tasting coffee if you’re not using filtered water. Scale buildup, excess particulates and excess chlorine and chloramine can lead to costly downtime and shorter service life of your equipment. Plus, excess chlorine and organic residue can cause beverages to taste bitter or off brand.
These problems can lead to inconsistent service and beverage quality—and potential lost business. 3M™ Water Filtration solutions can help maintain coffee and tea clarity, consistency and full flavor while helping you keep your restaurant’s hot beverage equipment operating efficiently.

Espresso is a specialty beverage in your restaurant, and you need it to taste right. And you want your investment in your expensive machines to last. Excessive chlorine or chloramine in your water can contribute to oxidation of parts and fittings, which can reduce service life and can cause bitter-tasting beverages. Easy-to-install and maintain 3M™ Water Filtration solutions help reduce particles for better-tasting beverages and reduced equipment maintenance.
Ice may not be on your restaurant or QSR's menu, but it’s the one item that impacts almost every visitor experience. 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.
3M™ Foodservice Water Filtration solutions for ice applications provide built-in scale inhibition as well as chlorine taste, odour and particulate reduction. That means you can help ensure your restaurant’s ice will look and taste great—and avoid expensive equipment repairs and downtime.
*Based on NSF/ANSI 42 testing of the HF20-S, HF40-S, HF60-S and HF90-S for the reduction of chlorine taste and odour.
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.
The most refreshing beverages are the beverages that taste exactly like they’re supposed to. High particulate matter and excess chlorine and chloramine residual can negatively impact the look and taste of your cold beverages—and customers will notice. 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.
*Based on NSF/ANSI 42 testing of the HF10, HF20, HF40, HF60 and HF90 for the reduction of chlorine taste and odour.
