EC-2200S Advanced Water Filtration Technology

  • This replacement water filter cartridge contains a polyphosphate scale inhibitor and a compressed carbon block.
  • The scale inhibitor reduces the build up of minerals on equipment including hard water spots from lime scale build up. It works by forming a thin protective layer on the metal surface to inhibit the deposition of scale and corrosion on your food service equipment and plumbing connections.
  • Huge capacity to remove and/or reduce impurities and sediment that may be present in your drinking water.
  • The carbon block has millions of active sites to attract and absorb impurities.
  • This water filter acts like a catalytic converter to breakdown impurities.
  • These processes ensure that you are getting the cleanest and best tasting water possible.
  • Significantly reduces hardness build up in the water supply.
