The intelligent water shortcut fea- ture enables the upstream machine to be operated even if the cartridge has been removed. No more shutting down your business to change a filter. Safe & Simple Handling PURITY C has been designed to be quick and simple to exchange; it can be done in one fast, effective process. As soon as the release on the filter is rotated, it is safe to remove and replace with a new filter. As with all MAVEA products, the PURITY C is tested and certified by independent institutions. Constant By-pass PURITY C filters all of the water; the user decides what percentages will bypass the iron exchange resin and only Mavea (Con't. from p. 1) be filtered over carbon. Due to Intellibypass technology, the flow rate of the water will not affect the quality of the water to the machine. This technology functions completely independent of the volumetric flow and ensures the set bypass water proportion remains con- stant at all times. Filter Head MAVEA developed the special filter head to overcome the issues of differing water quality across the country and the specif- ic needs of clients. A flexible filter head concept for the PURITY C range, the two filter heads are available with either a fixed 30 percent bypass or a variable 0 to 70 percent bypass.

BEFORE YOU BUY A SOUS VIDE CIRCULATOR … When buying a sous vide circulator, like any other piece of equipment, it is crucial to take into account many aspects of the circulator to make the best decision. Most of the restaurants in the U.S. are working with PolyScience immersion circulators, which are available starting at $799. The first important piece to consider is the setting. In what environment will the sous vide circulator be used? If it will be exposed to grease or oil, steam, or high air temperatures, it's important to purchase a circulator with industrial grade design and components and high quality manufactur- ing processes. Often times, circulators may operate with little or no rest (much like the chefs who use them), so check with the manufacturer to see if there are endorsements from chefs who are already running their circulators 24/7. Another important point to explore is the strength of the circulating pump. As uniformity in temperature throughout the tank cannot be achieved by occasion- ally stirring or without a circulation pump, it is important to find a sous vide FIVE STAR RESORT WINS BATTLE AGAINST FLIES WITH POISON-FREE FLIES BE GONE "We began using the Flies Be Gone traps last year and were immediately impressed with the excellent results. By placing the traps 10 to 15 yards from the dining areas, the flies are drawn away and the traps are catching an ENORMOUS quantity mak- ing them our invisible allies in this ongo- ing battle against flies. Flies Be Gone traps are helping to make our guest expe- rience the best." Director Food & Beverage, five star resort, Aruba. Where there's food, there are flies! Even a single pesky fly can potentially ruin an occasion or dining experience. Losing customers over fly problems can be costly and damaging in the long term. For obvious reasons, pesticide and insecticide solutions to fly issues in the food industry are a danger to all. Health authorities monitor food establishments, imposing significant fines for repeated violations involving flies in and around restaurant or factory. Making a decision on which method of fly control to employ is a tremendous responsibility with con- sequences impacting the environment. Now, there is an earth friendly, pesti- cide-free solution to fly control: Flies Be Gone. The trap catches up to 20,000 flies and protects a large outdoor area for 30 days. Easy to use and economical, Flies Be Gone is a perimeter defense, drawing flies away from restaurant entrances, loading dock, outdoor dining, barbeque and dumpster areas.

In addition to the presence of durable components, there are other key features to look for when purchasing a sous vide circulator. Can the circulator be easily stored and transported?
