Staying hydrated throughout the day is critical for productivity and energy levels, which is why most office environments have installed water coolers, and with the ever-increasing cost of bottled water, the need for a reliable, hygienic alternative is even greater.
Whether it’s a simple tap or a sleek, stylish fountain, tap water isn’t always a reliable source of hydration, and that’s why installing one of the food and beverage fittings is a must in any commercial kitchen or food service operation.
Water coolers and fountains are great, but if you’re looking for a more hygienic and reliable source of water, why not install an under counter water filtration system? These systems are ideal for any commercial environment, and will ensure you’re providing fresh, clean drinking water for your employees.
What to look for when choosing a food and beverage filtration system
There are a few different types of under counter filtration systems that can be used in any commercial environment, but before you install one of these systems in your kitchen or food service operation, it’s important to consider a few things.
First of all, these systems are relatively expensive, and there are only a few systems that are designed specifically for commercial kitchens and food service establishments. Most of these systems are only intended for domestic use, but if you do decide to install one of these systems in your commercial kitchen or food service operation, you’ll want to install one of the most hygienic models, and make sure that it’s compatible with the sink or faucet you already have in your kitchen.
Most of the systems on the market today are of the touch-free variety, and will come with a water filter cartridge that is inserted into the system. These systems are designed for touch-free operation, meaning there’s no need to remove the filter and wash it out, or touch the water source. This type of system can be used in any environment, from domestic kitchens to commercial kitchens, and are typically more affordable than others.
The other type of system on the market is the cartridge filter system, which is the more traditional type of filtration system. These systems are not touch-free, meaning you have to remove the filter and clean it periodically, and they typically come with a dedicated filter and a separate backwash container. These systems are ideal for domestic kitchens, but are more expensive than the touch-free systems.
If you’re looking for a commercial kitchen filtration system, you’ll want to consider what the filter cartridge will look like, as well as whether it will fit into your existing sink or faucet. Most of the food service filters are designed for a standard 12 inch sink, and you’ll need to make sure that it fits into the sink before you install it.
