ScaleStick is a special HydroBlend feed system developed to be used with standard filter head & housings.

Standard Prefilter Head
Where standard HydroBlend systems utilize flow-thru medial deliver heads, the ScaleStick based systems use standard filter heads to dispense the product.
ScaleStick cartridges fit standard 10″ filter housings allowing them to be used with any number of standard housings that accept 10 filter cartridges in new or existing applications. If sediment filtration or carbon block filtration is desired in the same housing, there are a couple of choices – The SS-IP or the SS-DI.
The SS-IP is an insert plug inside the bottom cap of a sediment filter (SD-510SS, SD-516SS, or SS-20SS) or a carbon block filter (CB-10SS, CB-16SS, and CB-20SS). These plugs are not replaceable and must be ordered as a complete filter cartridge with the SS-IP included.
The SS-DI Short/Tall is inserted into the top of most carbon block filters or sediment filters and can be removed to check product levels. It is order separate from the sediment filter or carbon block filter.
Use of the SS-IP or the SS-DI is usually limited to Point-Of-Use applications like ice machines or coffee equipment. Point of entry applications always use a stand alone ScaleStick in the proper size for the given flow rate of the application.
The ScaleStick water treatment line includes a variety of cartridge configurations allowing their use in many different water treatment applications. The ScaleStick feed system can be tailored to meet various equipment or user demands including flow rates, frequency of use, and desired treatment duration.
Standard ScaleStick Systems utilize drop-in style housings where the same housing is used and cartridges are exchanged periodically. These are available in Single or Twin Housings. Twin systems are offered with Sediment or Carbon Block Filters in housings that accept 10″ 16″ or 20″ filters.
The SS-10 ScaleStick is a stand alone cartridge that fits standard 10” water filter housings. It is typically used in foodservice applications, primarily on ice machines where the water usage is generally higher than on most other beverage equipment.
Preferred Flow Rate Range-.5-2 gpm
Applications – Ice Machines, High Volume Coffee/Tea, Boiler Based Steamers & Combination Ovens, Proofers, Deck/Rack Ovens, RO Pretreatment, Misting Systems, Swamp Coolers
The SS-XL ScaleStick is a stand alone cartridge that fits standard 10” water filter housings. It is typically used in foodservice and tankless water heaters applications.
Preferred Flow Rate Range-1-3 gpm
Applications – Large Ice Machines, Multiple Coffee/Tea Equipment, Warewash Equipment, Small Tankless Heaters, RO Pretreatment, Misting Systems
(Extra Large ScaleStick)
The SS-EXT ScaleStick is designed for some foodservice, residential, and light commercial applications. Its larger diameter makes it suitable for medium size ware wash applications and some POE installations in small establishments. Residential applications include whole house water treatment.
Preferred Flow Rate Range- 2-4 gpm
Applications – Warewash, Whole Home or Small Restaurant, RO Pretreatment, Tankless Water Heaters
(Extra Large Tall ScaleStick)
The SS-MAX ScaleStick is a longer version of the SS-EXT that was designed for the same foodservice and light commercial applications. Its sizer makes it suitable for higher demand ware wash applications and some POE installations. Its feed rate is similar to that for the SS-EXT, however the length of the cartridge allows for longer treatment periods in between cartridge replacements.
Preferred Flow Rate Range- 2-6 gpm
Applications – Flight Type or high usage Warewash, POE applications, RO Pretreatment, Tankless Water Heaters
Although all ScaleStick cartridges allow water to flow at much higher flow rates than their preferred flow rate range, choosing the correct cartridge for the specific application will ensure proper feed rates and treatment duration. The preferred flow rate range is the average flow rate encountered in a specific application. For example, even though a household may occasionally flow 10 gpm if enough faucets or appliances are being used, the typical average flow in a residential application is one faucet on at a time or 1-3 gpm depending on the outlet. All applications are sized for the average flow rate encountered, not peak flow rates.
