Spirit (Soft brew; tune your water)

System description: 

Results from both our own coffee tasting and from coffee professionals using their own coffee, indicate coffee taste is enhanced flavor wise and in complexity when water PH measures close to basic.  We have developed a system to manage this range it's  named'Spirit' & 'Spirit +'.

'Spirit' & 'Spirit+' de-carbonate the water.  It's done through Ion exchange (Carbonates from the incoming water are captured and Hydrogen Ions released).    

Applications suited to fitting a 'Spirit' & 'Spirit+' are those where the incoming water PH is > 8.0 @ 25degC.  And applications where users want to regulate PH between a range of 6.4 to 7.5; for example to suit different coffee and taste profile.  

Regulation of the PH level is managed primarily by BRITAs' patented 'intelibypass' head.  Simply by altering the head setting you will increase or decreases the release of Hydrogen Ions into the water stream.

Spirit + is designed for those systems where the incoming water PH is lower than approx. 7.5. 

Call us to discuss the other changes that occur to the water parameters by installing a SPIRIT system as well book a time to visit us at our showroom & taste your coffee or the water itself!

Filter description (inner workings of the filter):

1) Pre-filtration
A pre-filter retains coarse particles.

2 Total hardness reduction
Filter medium reduces total hardness of water and clearly reduces limescale and gypsum deposits.

3) Activated carbon filtration
All water runs through an activated carbon filter, reducing taste and aroma impairing substances.

4) Fine filtration
Finally, a fleece retains any remaining fine particles.

IntelliBypass technology
Unique IntelliBypass technology allows for a constant by-pass water rate regardless of volumetric flow. For consistently high water quality, in particular with low water throughput rates.
