High quality water is an essential ingredient in brewing a good cup of coffee or pot of tea. Municipalities normally provide safe drinking water, and are required by law to meet health standards and to document the test results. While safe to drink, this water isn't necessarily the best water with which to brew coffee or to make other beverages. Filtration and treatment can improve beverages while protecting your equipment from service problems caused by certain water conditions.
With the use of cartridge filtration, sediment, taste &
odours, and lime scale can be treated. These cartridges range in size from single application filters to large systems that will filter all of the beverage water. These
can include permanent mounting brackets, pressure gauges, shut off valves for filter
changes, purge valves and quick change systems. Some systems have a permanent housing with replaceable cartridges. Other system's cartridges are contained in a metal casing which is completely discarded. Cartridges combining a scale inhibitor with carbon or separate feeders using polyphosphate cartridges are commonly used. Triple action filters combine sediment filtration, carbon, and scale inhibitors in a single package.
Water that has a high sediment level can change the aesthetic value of the finished beverage. It also can have a detrimental effect on the performance of your equipment. Sediment can cause blockages in the strainers, flow controls and even the solenoids inside your equipment. This blockage can cause reduced accuracy in the water-to-coffee ratio that is so critical in the brewing process.
Sediment: Sediment consists of small particles suspended in the water. These particles may be rust flakes from the water pipes, sand grains, small pieces of organic matter, clay particles, or any other small particles in the water supply.
Lime scale: A common problem in beverage equipment is liming, or scaling, caused by excessive hardness or mineral content of the water. Heating the water causes lime to precipitate and form lime scale. If left untreated lime scale
build-up can cause numerous problems in coffee brewing equipment. The list includes the insulating of heating elements, reduction in volume of hot water in your equipment's tank and clogging or completely closing the tubing.
Taste, odours and chlorine:
Many tastes and odours in water are due to naturally occurring substances. Chlorine, on the other hand, is added as a disinfectant to control harmful bacteria.
Activated carbon is the most common used to remove these elements from the water. Base materials for carbon include coal, coconut shells and wood. After being carbonized, this material is "activated" with steam under closely controlled conditions, enlarging the pore structure of the carbon, giving it a very large surface area. This press gives activated carbon its capacity to remove taste and
odours. Absorption is the mechanism in which the molecules that cause taste and
odours to adhere to the carbon. This happens within the pore structure of the carbon.
