Vending Machine Filters

Anyone in the business knows the problems with vending machines and scale. Water filters can be both tricky to change and costly, with loss of revenue caused by machine-downtime, plus the added expense of manpower and tools.

Vending Machines

3M's quick-change filters can be fitted and working in seconds. Watch our video to see for yourself how easy they are to fit, and the dramatic impact this system could have on your productivity.

The ScaleGard® Pro range of water filters including our standard ScaleGard® Pro range, our H+ range and our new P1175 Series, help eliminate scale, which not only ensures elements stay cleaner and work more efficiently, but also provides better tasting drinks. So energy, time and money are all saved – leaving a nicer taste in everyone’s mouth.

We can help provide:

  • Less equipment failures and downtime as a result of scale
  • Improved drink quality experience
  • Reduced machine energy consumption and scale build up
  • Reduced filter costs, without compromising quality.

Scale Reduction for Vending Machines

Scale can increase costs due to equipment downtime and failures, reduce efficiency in beverage production, produce bad quality tasting drinks and reduce your vending machines life.

To reduce and inhibit scale formation 3M has the right filtration solution for you:

  • The ScaleGard Pro Range, a disposable system that prevents hard scale forming, preventing unnecessary downtimes and service calls.
  • The Brew HF range, to reduce chlorine taste and odour, inhibit scale and reduce sediment.

Chlorine Taste and Odour Removal in Vending Machines

Chlorine is one of the most common complaints of taste and odour of vended drinks. Activated carbon provides a simple and effective means to reduce chlorine from water. Activated carbon also can be effective at removing other water taints such as taste and odours caused by trace levels of organics in the water, which can cause for example earthy, chemical taints in beverages made by mains fed vending machines.

All activated carbons are not the same and 3M offers a range of high performance carbon based systems for chlorine, taste and odour reduction, such as the 3M ScaleGard Pro Range of scale reducing filters.

3M offers chlorine taste and odour removal in all vending machines as well as mains fed water coolers, postmix and ice machines, coffee, and steamers as well as for water filtration in the home.

ScaleGard® Pro Filters are extremely effective at removing contaminants from your water, and the Sanitary Quick Change design will save you time and money. See how quick and easy it is to replace the filter cartridge here.
