We designed the 3M™ Replacement Filter Cartridges AP3 Series are our filter cartridges featuring carbon block media and incorporating a VH3 head platform design that allows only 3M™ Water Filtration Products AP3 Series replacement cartridges to be used.
The 3M™ Replacement Filter Cartridges AP3 Series provide consistently great tasting water for point of use water coolers and drinking water systems. Our cartridges use carbon block filtration media to reduce chlorine and sediment improving taste, odour and increasing the life of equipment. Filters featuring 0.2 µm nylon membrane wrapped around the carbon block filter (AP3-C762M and AP3-C1102M) reduce parasitic protozoan cysts like cryptosporidium and giardia, along with water-borne bacteria. Change-outs are fast and easy with 3M™ Sanitary Quick Change (SQC) encapsulated cartridge design, and no filter wrench is required so media contamination is reduced. Two different cartridge sizes are available, each with a different rated capacity, offering options to help meet cartridge life expectancy for better equipment protection and effective contaminant reduction. Surfaces that are in contact with water are FDA CRF-21 compliant for food and beverage contact.
