Scale Inhibitor & Steam Filters
Scale is formed from “hard water” or water that has high mineral content (in contrast with “soft water”). Hard water is formed when water percolates through deposits of calcium and magnesium-containing minerals such as limestone, chalk and dolomite. Hard drinking water is generally not harmful to one’s health, but can pose serious problems in commercial and Industrial settings, where water hardness is monitored to avoid costly breakdowns in ice machines, combi ovens, boilers and cooling towers and any other equipment that handles water. In domestic settings, hard water is often indicated by a lack of suds formation when soap is agitated in water, and by the formation of limescale in kettles and water heaters. Wherever water hardness is a concern, water softening is commonly used to reduce hard water’s adverse effects and Filter Pure stocks many different solutions for point of use water filtration hard water problems. It is always best to start with a water sample to know just what the water hardness causing your water problem is, (measured in grains per gallon).
