Balance+ Technology transforms calcium bicarbonate into a harmless, crystal form of calcium carbonate. After these calcium carbonate crystals are created, they cannot dissolve in cold or hot water, thereby preventing the formation of limescale within the system.
The role of water when creating coffee is to extract flavour compounds from the bean. Ideally, brewing coffee collects appetising compounds and leaves behind the unpleasant ones. Calcium, magnesium and carbonate play an important role in enhancing and muting flavours derived from coffee grounds. Unfortunately, when heated calcium and carbonate create limescale, which is bad news for the lifespan and performance of any coffee machine. Balance+ Technology was brought about from the desire to maintain flavour-enhancing minerals in the water so that a balanced flavour is achieved, whilst still protecting equipment from limescale.
Features and Benefits:
• Balance+ media does not add or take anything from the water, maintaining TDS levels after treatment.
• pH levels remain unchanged, meaning the treated water is suitable for nearly any application where corrosion is a concern.
• Rich minerals such as calcium and magnesium are preserved, with no addition of sodium or other chemicals to the water.
• Balance+ Technology prevents scale build up, but also helps to reduce previously formed scale in the system.
