Enhanced water cooler filters 'save space, cost'

23 July 2010

New from 3M and available through Abbeychart, the AP2-G water cooler filter offers a more compact choice for mains-fed units, using enhanced filtration technology

It offers 53% less plastic than previous filters while retaining full filtration performance to produce clean, good-tasting quality drinking water.

A miniaturised carbon block matches the flow rate and capacity of current filters with larger blocks and achieves the same micron ratings to remove unwanted components from the water, with an added option of a scale inhibitor.

The patented 3M filtration technology utilises a powdered media combined with a unique binding matrix supporting small particles to deliver superior efficiency and optimal performance. Rated at 2 litres/min with a 4000 litre chlorine capacity and a particulate retention level of Cyst or 1 micron, the filter supports VOC, lead and polyphosphate scale inhibition.

Filter compatibility and a sanitary quick change fitting allow for instant replacement of previous models with just a quarter-turn and without having to shut off the water supply, which also gives significant savings in service costs.

By reducing mains water sediment from 1.0 to 0.5 micron, these filters also protect cooler units from these and other abrasive particles to limit maintenance costs associated with machine downtime.

By using less plastic in production the filters reduce waste and are an environmentally responsible source of quality drinking water. They can also be recycled by separation into components to boost recycling of plastic filter housings for an extra eco-benefit.
