ScaleX Special Filter


Water filtration is an often-overlooked aspect of food service equipment. Unfiltered or improperly filtered water can have negative effects on every aspect of your food service operation. It is important in food service so that water is not only safe but tastes great. Water softener (ion exchange) adds salt to the water. Phosphates add chemicals to the water. Chlorine has been used to disinfect water since the early 1900s. Some customers will not notice the taste of chlorine, but others will, and chlorine can drastically alter the taste of post-mix beverages and coffee.


Scale Eliminator and Flavor Enhancer: 100% Filtration, no change in capacity up to 25 grains of hardness



Particles of dirt, turbidity, heavy metals, and organic compounds such as herbicides, pesticides, or pharmaceutical residues are removed from the water by means of extremely fine activated carbon in the form of a block that surrounds the SP3 limescale prevention granules. Chlorine and other substances in the water have a negative effect on the taste and odor of food and drink are removed.



The temporary water hardness
(dissolved calcium bicarbonate) is transformed into micrometer-sized aragonite crystals. Due to this change in its structure, the formed crystals can no longer attach themselves to surfaces such as fittings, heating coils, or pipes. Ensuring lasting protection from limescale
deposits of all kinds and their unwanted side effects.

Applications include (not limited to):

Coffee & tea brewers
Ice machines
Espresso equipment

High capacity GUARANTEED to reduce – PLUS BAD TASTE AND ODOR


FILTER A does all the dirty work and FILTER B is the polishing unit. When the pressure gauge for FILTER A shows a 5% drop or more remove FILTER A and replace it with FILTER B insert a new filter where FILTER B previously was positioned.


JUST A THOUGHT: Typically, filters are changed every 6 months, BUT how do you know if the filter still has capacity? The dual rack helps ensure filters aren’t thrown out before their stated capacity

Special filter Challenge

Test the pH of the water with your existing filter. Then replace the existing filter with our Special filter and test the pH.

Operational Perimeters:
pH Range: 6.5 – 9.5
Hardness (maximum): 26 gpg
Water pressure: 30 psi to 120 psi
(2.1-8 bar to 6.9 bar)
Temperature: 41°F – 176°F (5°C – 80°C)
Free Chlorine: < 3 ppm – mg/l
Iron (maximum): 0.5 ppm – mg/l
Magnesium (maximum): 0.05 ppm – mg/l
Copper (maximum): 1.3 ppm – mg/l
Oil: Free
Hydrogen sulfide: Free
Salinity (maximum): 35,000 ppm – mg/l10

Ineffective scale sticks are a thing of the past.
The SP3 media protects from scale, corrosion, and bacteria.


Water with pH in the 7.0 – 7.2 range prior to being filtered through the scale stick or ion exchange will come out with a pH lower than 7.

Don’t believe us? Ok, test the pH of your water yourself.
