Extend the life of your steamer by adding a water treatment unit.


Steam equipment is vital to keep up and running during a foodservice operation's busiest days. Unfiltered water contains chlorine, chloramines and other minerals that can cause harmful scale buildup and corrosion. Prevent untimely equipment downtime with the following water treatment units:


Inside the hot and moist environment of your steamer, the hard minerals and harsh chemicals found in untreated water find the perfect place to form scaly buildup and corrosion. But the ScaleBlocker water filtration system gives you a simple and affordable way to protect your equipment and prevent damage.

ScaleBlocker's state-of-the-art SMF filter breaks down the minerals that cause scale into nano-crystals that are flushed from the system on a continuous basis. And it provides 30 times the chloramine reduction than conventional carbon block and polypropylene filters, which guards your equipment against corrosion.

Easy to install and 100 percent recyclable, the ScaleBlocker system meets NSF standards 42 and 53 and comes with a free reminder service for cartridge replacement.


Hard water is especially damaging on booster heaters, dish machines, steamers, proofers, combination ovens, and rack and deck ovens.

Any water-fed equipment that requires high temperatures creates a "scale-friendly" environment. High temperatures cause the hard minerals in water to demulsify, creating solid scale depositors. Scale acts as an insulator, potentially causing heating elements to fail or clogging of water lines starving equipment of needed water.

Hobart twin-tank, non-electric water softeners are available in both compact and enterprise-wide models. By virtually eliminating the scale buildup caused by the calcium and magnesium in hard water, Hobart water softeners increase both the life and efficency of your equipment.
