B1 Series Commercial Water Filtration Systems
The APEX B1 series commercial-grade reverse osmosis water purification system is suitable for food preparation operations like bakeries, coffee shops,
breweries and restaurants as well as healthcare facilities and laboratories. The reverse osmosis system provides particle-free, mineral free mist water for
supermarket produce displays, greenhouses and botanical gardens. B1 series uses three stages of water filtration. The process starts with a 5-micron
sediment filter that removes tiny particles like rust, silt and mineral scale. This prevents medical equipment, coffee makers, ice machines and other sensitive
dispensing equipment from clogging. Next, the water flows through a 10-micron activated carbon block cartridge. The carbon block filter remove taste and
odor-causing chemicals like chlorine, chloramine, hydrogen sulfide and geosmin (earthy/musty taste & odors). The carbon cartridge also remove organic
contaminants like herbicides, insecticides and THMs. The final filtration stage involves the reverse osmosis (RO) process. Here water is “squeezed” through
a special membrane. Heavy metals, like lead and mercury, are removed while purified water passes through. The RO process also removes salts, nitrate,
phosphate, fluoride, radon and benzene. Because water supplies often have low or variable water pressures, the B1 comes with a rotary vane high-pressure
pump to insure the filtration system works at maximum efficiency. .
Inlet and outlet pressure gauges provide at-a-glance status of the system, indicating if the cartridges need to be replaced. The entire filtration system can be
turned off or on with a flip of one switch. The straight-forward layout and operation of the B1 makes it the ideal water purification system for nursing homes,
educational facilities and residential buildings. Hydroponic growers will benefit from the purified low TDS water when mixing nutrient solutions. Aquarium
wholesalers, retail shops and saltwater aquarists need high-purity nitrate, phosphate and heavy metal-free water for corals and sensitive fish. Wherever large
quantities of high purity water are needed, the APEX reverse osmosis filtration system will do the job.
B1 series filters can be coupled with an optional ultraviolet disinfection unit that provides protection from bacteria, parasites, algae and virus contamination.
We recommend installation by a licensed plumber to insure adherence to all local codes. Routine replacement of the filter cartridges is recommended to
maintain filter performance. Replacement cartridges are available from APEX Water Filters.
