Complete your Set-Up with the BWT Bestmax Premium Filter Package

Bundled for your convenience, the BWT Bestmax Premium Filter Package w/Besthead FLEX has everything you need to keep your espresso tasting great and to protect your machine from scale buildup. The new Besthead FLEX features an updated mounting bracket for greater compatibility with different types of screws, an integrated flush valve, and the ability to swap out the included fittings for others produced by BWT. Thanks to the Besthead FLEX and a pair of included water lines, BWT's water filtration system is incredibly easy to install and to swap out old cartridges once they've been used up.

BWT's Bestmax Premium filter cartridge is an all-in-one water filtration solution. Outstandingly suited for the filtration of water for hot beverages like coffee, espresso, the Bestmax Premium is a modular multi-stage filter that uses patented BWT Mg2+ technology. This unique feature mineralizes the filtered water with magnesium, via a high performance ion exchanger that binds calcium and replaces it with magnesium via a charged resin that releases it during the filtration process. This replacement of calcium prevents scale buildup in espresso machines and water lines without significantly altering the total water hardness or TDS of the water.

The Bestmax Premium uses the five layer filtration process detailed below:

  1. Particle Pre-Filter - Separation of coarse particles such as sand and rust.
  2. Activated Carbon Pre-Filter - Elimination of oxidants, protection of the ion exchanger against aging.
  3. High-performance Ion Exchanger - Removal of hardening substances, adjustment of mineral balance.
  4. Activated Carbon Non-woven - Elimination of organic substances, chlorine, foreign odor and foreign taste.
  5. Particle Fine Filter - Separation of fine particles and suspended matter.

Depending on the intended environment for the filter, the cartridges are available in different sizes.

  • S - Filters up to 1,070 Liters at bypass setting 3 with 49.98 ppm / 7 °DTH (degrees total hardness)
  • V - Filters up to 2,570 Liters at bypass setting 3 with 49.98 ppm / 7 °DTH (degrees total hardness)
  • M - Filters up to 3,855 Liters at by pass setting 3 with 49.98 ppm / 7 °DTH (degrees total hardness)

Please Note: The total capacity of your filter will vary based on the hardness of your water and the blend setting selected with the filter head.

The filter head can be adjusted to one of several blend settings based on the hardness of your water. The blend settings adjust the amount of water run through the ion exchange in ratios of 0/100, 10/90, 25/75, and 40/60. When switching out filter cartridges, the filter head will cut the flow of water to prevent leaks.

Includes 2 braided 3/8" hoses with compression fittings that easily connect to prosumer espresso machines and home water lines.
