How It Works

The Problem

Although perfectly safe to drink, UK water contains impurities which can spoil taste, smell, appearance and overall quality of drinks. For an appliance heating water or producing steam temporary hardness, the cause of scale build-up, can have a significant impact on running costs together with the inconvenience of increased maintenance and downtime. The key to a long term solution is an efficient water filter system with timely filter exchange to keep the system at optimum efficiency.

The Solution

Purity Technology is enabling Brita to set new standards in water filtration. Never before has achieving optimum water quality for any application been so simple, secure and reliable. PURITY matches the filtration system to the job it has to perform, which guarantees the best possible water quality for the application - irrespective of whether it is coffee making, vending, baking, steaming or dishwashing.

Brita offers a complete range of PURITY water filter systems specifically designed to meet the needs of the commercial foodservice market, but all share common features of:

  • Optimum water quality for the application
  • Highest level of product safety
  • Simple to use

Variable By-pass Settings

For taste and cost effectiveness it is beneficial to retain some dissolved minerals in the water. In all Purity filters a bypass is built-in to blend fully treated and partially treated water to achieve this. To ensure the water quality is correct for the application and the cartridge lifetime is optimised, the recommended Purity water filter type with the correct bypass setting should be installed. The BRITA Purity installation manual details the bypass setting required for each Purity filter type once the Temporary Hardness is confirmed. Typical bypass settings are:

  • Water Boilers 10% Bypass
  • Vending Machines 30% Bypass
  • Coffee Machines 30-40% Bypass
  • Combi Ovens & Steamers 10% Bypass
