Reduce damaging particulates that may be in your water with 3M™ Water Filtration Products for foodservice. Our filtration solutions also help to reduce the amount of chloramine that can impact the taste and appearance of your beverages, work to minimize the chlorine taste and odor that can give ice an off-taste, and reduce the likelihood of water hardness that can cause scale buildup in your expensive equipment. When you reduce factors that can negatively impact your business, you increase customer satisfaction, the longevity of your appliances and your bottom line.
3M filtration is trusted in restaurants around the world for performance, convenience and quality. Get efficient and effective solutions, easy-to-use and easy-to-maintain systems, and reliable results that maximize product consistency and operational continuity.
When it comes to hot beverages, even if you use the right grind and brew at the right temperature, you could still end up with bitter-tasting coffee if you’re not using filtered water. Scale buildup, excess particulates and excess chlorine and chloramine can lead to costly downtime and shorter service life of your equipment. Plus, excess chlorine and organic residue can cause beverages to taste bitter or off-brand.
These problems can lead to inconsistent service and beverage quality — and potential lost business. 3M™ Water Filtration Products can help maintain coffee and tea clarity, consistency and full flavor while helping you keep your restaurant’s hot beverage equipment operating efficiently.

Excessive chlorine or chloramine in your water can contribute to oxidation of parts and fittings, which can reduce service life and can cause bitter-tasting beverages.

Ice may not be on your restaurant or QSR's menu, but it’s the one item that impacts almost every visitor experience. If it’s not crystal clear and odorless, it can quickly start to make a bad impression on your customers. Particulates and dissolved minerals in your water can cause scale buildup that can damage ice making machines.
3M™ Water Filtration Products for ice applications provide built-in scale inhibition as well as chlorine taste, odor and particulate reduction. That means you can help ensure your restaurant’s ice will look and taste great — and help avoid expensive equipment repairs and downtime.
*Based on NSF/ANSI 42 testing of the ICE120, ICE140, ICE160, and ICE190 for the reduction of chlorine, taste, & odor.
Ever wonder what you’d do if you lost your most versatile piece of kitchen equipment — your combi oven — to a mechanical breakdown? Hard water is especially problematic for combi ovens. When water is converted to steam, it leaves impurities behind. These impurities cling to the solid surfaces and can cause problems. Over time, you’ll notice hard scale build-up, increased operating costs and maintenance downtime.
3M™ Water Filtration Products can help reduce impurities, downtime for repairs and worry — so you can focus on your customers. When you take care of your water, your combi oven will take care of you.
The most refreshing beverages are the beverages that taste exactly like they’re supposed to. High particulate matter and excess chlorine and chloramine residual can negatively impact the look and taste of your cold beverages — and customers will notice. Excess particulates can also cause maintenance issues and shorten the service life of expensive beverage machines.
Help ensure your beverages are as refreshing as your customers expect them to be with 3M™ Water Filtration Products. They feature Sanitary Quick Change design for fast and easy change outs and reduce excess particles to help reduce scale buildup in your cold beverage equipment.
*Based on NSF/ANSI 42 testing of the BEV120, BEV140, BEV160, and BEV190 for the reduction of chlorine, taste, & odor.
