How To Stop Slime!

Is slime taking over your ice machines? Don’t worry, slime contamination can be solved with the correct water filtration system. In a hospital, various environmental factors affect the ice. The problem with slime originates from filtration removing the disinfectant from the supply water to the ice machine.  By removing chlorine and chloramines, contamination can occur in the ice bins and nasty bacteria can multiply, leaving you with SLIME! To address this problem, Everpure has developed the 7SI cartridge. Everpure’s 7SI cartridge (EV9606-01) allows chlorine or chloramines through to help fight slime. 

7SI Cartridge

  • Specializes in slime and bacteria growth prevention
  • Reduces particulates down to 0.5 micron
  • Utilizes depth filtration and Fiberdyne™ media for superior dirt holding capability
  • Leaves chlorine and chloramines within water that is supplied to equipment which helps to reduce slime and bacteria growth in applications
  • Reduces system maintenance, service costs and buildup. Scale, slime, and bacteria growth can result in clogging of distribution lines, malfunction of probes, floats, pumps, solenoids and valves, and higher energy consumption
  • Sanitary cartridge replacement is simple, quick and clean. Internal filter parts are never exposed to handling or contamination
  • Can be used on Insurice® and Hybrid Manifold Systems
  • NSF® Certified under NSF / ANSI Standards 42 and 53

Features:

  • Cyst Reduction
  • Particulate Reduction
  • Capacity: 25,000 gallons (94,635 liters)
  • Maximum Flow: 3.5 gpm (13.25 lpm)
  • Qty. per Case: 0
  • Working Pressure: 10 – 125 psi (0.7 – 8.6 bar), non-shock
  • Max. Temp: 35 – 100ºF (2 – 38ºC)
  • H: 20.75″ D: 3.25″ Certifications: NSF42 NSF53

The 7SI cartridge is Everpure’s response to the ever-changing demands in the water filtration industry.  By keeping the disinfectant properties of chlorine in the water supply, we have removed the problem of slime without requiring additional costly equipment.

Chlorination Nation!

Decades ago, municipalities started adding ammonia to the chlorinated water treatment to boost the effectiveness in making water safe for consumption. As you can see in the chart above, Florida is one of the largest users. Chloramine is a combination of both chlorine and ammonia designed to strengthen the chlorine, making it last longer through the municipal water system. Chloraminated water is blended at the municipal water treatment site. It is monitored daily and after a large amount of rain, it is then blended a little stronger to handle the extra amount of water in the supply.  The ammonia in the water has created new types of problems that commercial equipment must deal with. Chloramines damage gaskets and o-rings and react with sweeteners in fountain syrups to form compounds that impact the taste. The activated carbon filters we used in the past are not as effective in removing  chloramine as they were with chlorine. So new types of filters and filter systems have been designed to deal with this problem. We constantly recommended the Everpure Series of CLM filters; the EV9278-11, EV9278-12, EV9278-13, and the EV9278-14.

All are not only rated for Chloramine but are NSF 42 and 53 certified. They have also been specified by Coca-Cola after testing with the new Coke Freestyle unitFor even larger capacity applications, the Everpure CB20 series can supply up to 5 gallons per minute for up to 85,000 gallons of water. If you have a chloramine problem, let us know right away. To find out what chemicals your municipality is using and what filtration can best take care of your water, call us at 800-942-7873.

Coke Freestyle and Everpure!

Ever since Coca-Cola came out with their new Freestyle Coke Machine, we’ve been getting call after call on Everpure’s CLM filtration systems! WHY? Because Everpure CLM has recently been validated by a third party lab to meet the tccc specifications for point of use filtration systems for the Freestyle machines! Hooray!! Being an Everpure master distributor, we are proud to carry this line of CLM water filter systems. But why the CLM line? What is CLM? I’m glad you asked! CLM is short for chloramine. As you might know, chloramine is a chemical compound made by reacting ammonia with the active ingredient in chlorine bleach. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, chloramines provide better protection against bacterial regrowth in water system. But chloramines can still effect the taste and odor of your water and can cause, through time, damage to your water applications. The specifications for the Coke Freestyle machine requires all taste and odor to be removed, the chlorine/chloramine levels to be less then 0.5 ppm, and sediment removal. Everpure’s CLM line meets all the filtration requirements for the Freestyle machine. It reduces chloramines, chlorine and other offensive contaminants that can adversely effect the taste and odor of the beverage. It’s sub-micron technology reduces dirt and particles 1/2 micron in size.  It improves the taste of fountain beverages and helps retain the drink’s carbonation. Have you ever received a complaint that your soda taste flat? Well, here’s your solution! The CLM line also protects your drink system’s seals, pump, tubing and small orifices from clogging, corrosion and abrasive wear. It is also NSF certified under NSF/ANSI Standards 42 and 53. The CLM line comes in single, twin, triple and quad systems. We also have systems with a pre-filtration option. So if you are apart of a restaurant using a Coca-cola Freestyle machine or you currently service a Freestyle machine, contact us today for more information on Everpure’s CLM line and how we can help you.
